At Chanukah...a special request from JRI-Poland #poland

Dear friends of JRI-Poland:

As we all celebrate the festival of Chanukah, JRI-Poland reflects
on the generosity of the research family that supports our programs
and initiatives each year.

Together we have done a remarkable job of raising resources to
support our individual town projects and make the records of our
families publicly searchable. For this, our heartfelt thanks!

And as you consider your year-end contributions, please be aware
that the JRI-Poland General Fund can also use your further support.
This fund allows us to continue to grow our infrastructure and
provide new tools and resources for research on our website.

There are exciting plans underway to make JRI-Poland searches
even more productive in the coming year, and "General Fund"
donations can help make this initiative a reality.

If you are in a position to make a major difference in the
future of JRI-Poland please contact mitzvah@jri-poland.org.

Remember, we now also provide a facility to make recurring
donations. Small donations, each month, can make a difference

Note: Jewish Records Indexing - Poland is an independent
non-profit organization with its own administration, volunteers
and fundraising. Because JRI-Poland's database, discussion group
and website are hosted by JewishGen, as a courtesy to researchers,
JRI-Poland enables its data search results to be displayed on
JewishGen's All Poland Database.

Wishing each and every one a healthy and joyous Chanukah.

Re: Call for Papers Is Now Open for IAJGS 2019 Cleveland Conference #austria-czech

Yefim Kogan
 

Dear Bessarabers,

Not long time ago we were in Warsaw at a conference, and now thinking about going to Cleveland, Ohio
next summer. I believe that coming to a conference has a profound impact on your personal research.

I remember a number of such cases, where in one our member found exactly the town where
ancestors were from, that was an eye opener for our member.  Usually without know town, it is hard to
advance in your research. The issue was solved immediately when I heard the town name pronounced,
and it was name in Russian or Yiddish.  The second similar case was when during a session on
Revision lists, I decided to search real time for a surname >from one of the persons in the audience,
and it worked great,  the person got a number of records about the family >from JewishGen, and
Yad Vashem.

What is also great at these conferences, you can connect to a researcher and have sort of a private
session.  At the conference in Warsaw Serghei Daniliuk, our invited guest and I offered such sessions
to anybody with interest in Bessarabia/Moldova, and I am planning to do the same in Cleveland this
summer.

Please think about coming to Cleveland at a conference, and let us know that you are coming. It
will good to know in advance how many people may come.

The other point is about Presentations at that conference.  Couple thinks I would like to find
out - what are your most important topics to hear at the next Conference?  That will help the
whole group to prepare better.

Finally, I want to ask you to prepare a topic of interest.  I know that many of you collected and
researched valuable information on different topics related to our region.  It does not mean
that you have to have the whole presentation by now. You may have some ideas and the
ways to do research, and later until next summer prepare this presentation.  This is what I
am usually doing.  I have a number of topics of interested and submit a proposal, and later will
prepare all the details.

It would be good to have a session on Jewish community in a district, like Orgeev, or Soroca, or
others, and let us know what is knows about Jewish life >from old times up to now.  Or possible a
session about the Holocaust in a district, or town, like Kishinev for example...  there are a lot of
information about it at JewishGen, but also at Yad Vashem, other sites.

Are you interested in a workshop type of session? What topics?

Do you want to invite a guest speaker?

Any other ideas are welcome.

Please contact me with questions, suggestions, ideas.

All the best,
