Now is the time for Litvak SIG Supporters to renew their LitvakSIG
annual memberships and pay their 2010 dues. Dues are payable on a
calendar year basis: >from January 1 through December 31 and are
separate >from donations to specific translation projects. We
encourage new members to join as well.
You may pay your dues by going to our website: www.litvaksig.org or
paying by mail. Just click on "Join LitvakSIG" on the column to the
left. Dues remain the same at the rate of $36. The form is
self-explanatory and also provides information on payment by mail.
Please see the FAQs (link on left hand side of our home page) for
answers to questions that may arise.
Only paid members have access to the members-only website,
www.litvaksig.com, where certain data not published elsewhere may be
found (i.e., indices to available records in some archives). Note that
contributions to district and other projects do not include membership.
These are paid separately.
LitvakSIG dues are used to support the operating expenses of the SIG
(special interest group), including regular international telephone
conference call board meetings, professional fees, the annual donation
to JewishGen for hosting the All Lithuania Database (ALD) and our
discussion group, for special activities, such as helping to sponsor
Lithuanian archivists or other special speakers at annual IAJGS
conferences and, very importantly, also for helping to translate
Donations may also be made to a Vital Record Translation Project, a
District Research Group, the Internal Passport Project, the Kaunas
Family List Project or the Research General Fund. Remember: these
projects are separate >from annual membership dues. All donations to
LitvakSIG, Inc. are tax deductible for US residents to the extent
allowable by law. Please consult with your tax advisor.
If you are unsure whether you have yet paid your 2010 dues, you may
contact our Treasurer by writing to email@example.com .
Thank you for supporting the LitvakSIG.
