NYC 2006 Conference--Call for Papers #hungary

Vivian Kahn

The Jewish Genealogical Society is the host society for the 2006
International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies annual
conference to be held at the Marriott Marquis in New York City from
August 13th to 18th. The Conference has just released its Call for
Papers. I hope that the conference will include a number of sessions
that are particularly relevant to the interests of Hungarian SIG
members. For this to happen, however, we will probably have to
identify potential speakers and topics.

I have already been in contact with some potential speakers and
encouraged them to submit proposals. If you have suggestions for
topics and speakers, please contact me off-list. As mentioned below,
the organizers are looking for sessions that do not duplicate
presentations at previous conferences.

Submissions should be made at the Conference website at
All abstract submissions must be submitted via the on-line abstract
module process. They will not accept e-mail submittals.

Presentation categories are listed below:

Computer Training Workshops
Eastern and Central European research
Genetics and DNA Research
Holocaust research
Immigration, naturalization and migration
Metropolitan New York City and New York State research
Non-European research (e.g. India, China)
Rabbinical research
Sephardic research
Technology and Internet resources
United States research
Yiddish theater/Tin Pan Alley

Just follow the instructions at the website.

The decision to accept a submission will be heavily weighted toward
presentations not given at previous IAJGS Conferences, that provide
specific research methodology and that include specific information for
researchers to replicate the success of the presenter in acquiring

Sessions will be one hour and fifteen minutes, with the last 15 minutes
reserved for questions and answers.

Proposal Deadline is December 1, 2005. Speakers will be notified no later than February 1, 2006

Handout material/resource material, due March 1, 2006, is required for
each presentation and will be included in the syllabus distributed to
all conference registrants. Further details of the handout material
requirements will be provided upon acceptance of lecture.

Potential presenters should direct their Inquiries to Gloria Berkenstat
