Dear Friends:
I do hope that all of you are planning to join us August 7-12, 2016 at
the IAJGS conference in Seattle. I know many of you have been eagerly
awaiting our call for proposals and information about registration.

Although we had hoped (as I previously reported) that our call for
papers would have opened earlier this week, we have decided to delay
that call until October 1, 2015. We want to make sure we have
everything running smoothly, and that submitting your proposals, getting
acknowledgement of your submission, and that the review and acceptance
of proposals don't encounter any glitches.

We have been updating the website as we get new information, so please

I am looking for birth and marriage records for my great great grandparents born in

in these years this area was part of Austria. Where would I begin to look for
records?

Dear Friends:
I do hope that all of you are planning to join us August 7-12, 2016 at
the IAJGS conference in Seattle. I know many of you have been eagerly
awaiting our call for proposals and information about registration.

Although we had hoped (as I previously reported) that our call for
papers would have opened earlier this week, we have decided to delay
that call until October 1, 2015. We want to make sure we have
everything running smoothly, and that submitting your proposals, getting
acknowledgement of your submission, and that the review and acceptance
of proposals don't encounter any glitches.

We have been updating the website as we get new information, so please
check in with it often to see what's new: www.iajgs2016.org
