The Jewish Genealogy Society of Greater Washington invites proposals

Jewish Genealogy. The conference will be held >from July 20 to 25,
2003, at the JW Marriott Hotel in Washington D.C. Deadline for
submission of proposals is **Dec. 31, 2002** Because of the extensive
archival resources and tourist attractions in the Washington area, we
expect record attendance at this conference. It is therefore important
for attendees and speakers to plan early.

Presentation proposals must include the following six sections. If you
submit more than one proposal, please use a separate page for each

1. Name, Title, Organizational Affiliation, Address, Telephone, and
E-mail address for each presenter

5. A more extensive description, up to 500 words, describing the
content of the presentation, identifying whether the presentation
is geared to beginner or intermediate/advanced genealogists, and a
description of the speaker's prior lecture experience, with emphasis
on Jewish genealogy. This information will assist the program
committee to decide on the merits of the presentation.
6. Audio-video and/or computer equipment required for the presentation

The presenters selected will receive free registration at the
conference. All presenters invited to the conference must agree to
submit a presentation summary, 14 pages in length (special programs
may require additional material). Upon acceptance of the proposal, we
will specify a date for submitting the presentation summary. The
summary materials will be included in the conference syllabus and
CD-ROM as resource for conference attendees. Presentations will also
be professionally tape-recorded.

a 15-minute question and answer period (75 minutes total time). We
