Martha Lev-Zion <martha@...>
As we are reaching the home stretch, we are putting the final
touches on the program for the Jewish Genealogy Conference in
Jerusalem. We have made arrangements with the Chevra Kadisha [Burial
Society] to enable you to search for where your relatives might be
buried in Jerusalem [only]. We are posting a downloadable .pdf on
our website: http://www.isragen.org.il/ROS/Form-Jeru-Bur-Soc.pdf
This file should be printed, filled out and returned to us as
instructed on the form. When you arrive at the Conference, the
information will be waiting for you. We will continue this service
after the conference as well, but preference until then will be
given to those registered for the conference.
Yad Vashem has informed us that they have extended their hours for
research during the conference. Their hours for the week of 4-9 July
will be as follows:
Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday: 8:30 am - 7:00 pm.
