Note: groups.jewishgen.org will be down for maintenance on Monday, September 26th, starting at 9AM Pacific Time (4PM Monday September 26, 2022 UTC), for approximately one hour.
The theme of the upcoming IAJGS International Conference on Jewish
Genealogy is the 100th Anniversary of the start of World War I. To
commemorate this event, the Conference is offering registrants (both
those who will attend the conference in Salt Lake City and those who
register to access it LIVE! over the Internet) the chance to share
their Family?s World War I era stories and photos. Stories may relate
to military service, the disruption caused by fighting, forced
relocation, emigration, or other topics related to this era.
Now is the time to write your story and gather your pictures. You may
upload your story and related photos using the World War I Story
Upload feature on the Conference website, www.iajgs2014.org . The
purpose of this feature is to allow the Conference Committee to gather
all of your stories and memories into a unique online exhibit and
possibly a printed memory book. We also plan a World War I picture
display at the Conference.
To use the World War I Story Upload Feature you must first register
for the conference. Then, use the Registration Update feature to
upload your story and associated pictures. You will need your
registration email and password to log into the Registration Update
feature. If you have forgotten your password, the Registration Update
page has a "Forgot password" function. We will periodically extract
stories to share through social media (Discussion Forum, Blog,
Facebook and Twitter). We envision cutting off updates as of June 15,
2014 to allow time to create the online exhibit for the conference.
