JewishGen will again offer a class in publishing your research. This

Time to get your data out of the shoebox and arrange it in a summary

The instructor will offer directions for using your genealogical
software "publishing features," organizing your files and folders,
citing your sources and making decisions about media snips and
images.

Requirements: Students must have done enough research to be
ready to write. Students should have access to a genealogical
software program and be comfortable with computers.

Students must have 8-10 hours per week to study the assignments,
write their reports and interact with the instructor. To meet the needs
of international students this course is open 24/7.

Tuition is $150 for this 3 week class and includes editing suggestions

database can be accessed at www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/
If you're a new JOWBR user, we recommend that you visit our screencast
page at www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Screencasts/ and take a
look at the first two explanatory screencasts.

This update, adds approximately 116,600 new records and 29,800 new
photos. The database is adding and/or updating 430 cemeteries. This
update brings JOWBR's holdings to 3.45 million records >from close to
8,000 cemeteries / cemetery sections representing 128 countries!

Please note, this update only includes submissions that were made
through last November 30th. Anything that was submitted after that will
be in the June pre-Conference update. If you have new material to submit,
please do so by May 31st to be included in the next update.

Once again, donors for this update include a mix of individuals,
Jewish genealogical societies, historical societies and museums. We
appreciate all our donor's submissions and the transliteration work done
by a faithful group of JewishGen volunteers.

Significant additions to JOWBR by country include:

. Argentina - approximately 11,300 records >from new and existing
cemeteries.
. Brazil - approximately 7,800 records >from 3 Rio de Janeiro
cemeteries
. Canada - updated records and 4,250 new and/or improved photos from

I want to particularly thank Eric Feinstein who has been finding and

under-represented countries. Eric's group of volunteers includes Sandra
Bennet, Lyn Bos, Malka Chosnek, George Goldschmied, Ann Meddin Hellmann,
Maurice Kessler, Hans Nord, Marilyn Shalks, Deborah Ross, Molly Mark
Strauss, and Suzanne Tarica. In addition, a big thank you to our volunteer
transliterators, led by Gilberto Jugend, without whom we would not be able
to add the information >from some very difficult to read photos.

We appreciate all the work our donors have done and encourage you to
make additional submissions. Whether you work on a cemetery / cemetery
section individually or consider a group project for your local Society,
temple or other group, it's your submissions that help grow the JOWBR
database and make it possible for researchers and family members to find
answers they otherwise might not. Please also consider other organizations
you may be affiliated with that may already have done cemetery indexing that
would consider having their records included in the JOWBR database.

SPECIAL PROGRAM FOR JEWISH EDUCATORS

On Sunday morning there will be a special sub-conference for Jewish

educators. For details, look under the PROGRAM tab on the Conference
website.

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The main Conference will start Sunday morning at 10:15 with the first of
some 184 presentations. Sunday will also include the popular SHARE Fair,
and the Exhibit Hall will be open. On Sunday afternoon at 2:45, our
Keynote Speaker, Daniel Goldmark, Director of the Center for Popular Music
Studies at Case Western Reserve University, will describe how Jews
contributed to the evolution of rock and roll. That will prepare us for
the Sunday evening reception at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, just a few
blocks >from the hotel. The "Rock Hall" will be open exclusively for us,
and heavy (kosher) hors d'oevres will be served.

In addition to the lectures, there will be 11 SIG luncheons during the
week, many featuring speakers >from the European areas covered by the SIGs.
There will also be 11 "Breakfasts with the Experts" that provide the
opportunity to sit down in a small group (maximum 25) with top experts in
many facets of Jewish genealogy.

The program on Sunday through Wednesday will kick off with workshops for
beginners (and those who feel that their skills need some refreshing).
They will be led by certified genealogist Dr. Rhoda Miller, Ed.D., who
will provide suggestions on how to get started, where to find resources,
and how to organize what you are doing. Dr. Miller will also cover how to
get the most out of the Conference for those attending their first one.

There are over 35 Birds of a Feather (BOF) meetings along with additional
SIG meetings. Eleven computer workshops will be offered, limited to 25
attendees each. Participants will need to bring a laptop computer with
Internet access.

Evening sessions will include the annual JewishGen gathering, which will
introduce some major changes coming at that organization. Subsequent
evenings will feature the Pamela Weisberger Memorial Lecture, the ever
popular Jewpardy! game show night, and the Gala Banquet, featuring Michael
Krasny, well known to NPR and KQED-FM San Francisco listeners. Krasny, a
native Clevelander, will discuss the evolution of Jewish humor, the
subject of his most recent book "Let There Be Laughter."

During the daytime hours, there will be as many as nine sessions at any
one time >from which to choose. For most sessions, audio recordings
together with the speakers' slides will be available for purchase prior to
and during the Conference.

This year, there will be no video recording or streaming, so if you want
to enjoy the best talks, you need to come to Cleveland. See you there this
summer!

one time >from which to choose. For most sessions, audio recordings
together with the speakers' slides will be available for purchase prior to
and during the Conference.

This year, there will be no video recording or streaming, so if you want
to enjoy the best talks, you need to come to Cleveland. See you there this
summer!

Yiddish Theatre and Vadeville #YiddishTheatre New JewishGen Class - Writing Short Reports May 10-May 31 #yiddish

bounce-3679752-772983@...
 

JewishGen will again offer a class in publishing your research. This
class concentrates on writing short reports.

Time to get your data out of the shoebox and arrange it in a summary
report? A quick, short report is great to send to relatives or other
researchers and to remind you just where your last project left off.

In this class we will practice writing 3 styles of reports:
* a list style,
* a lineage style report
* a longer Genealogical Summary Report.

The instructor will offer directions for using your genealogical
software "publishing features," organizing your files and folders,
citing your sources and making decisions about media snips and images.

Requirements: Students must have done enough research to be ready to
write. Students should have access to a genealogical software program
and be comfortable with computers.

Students must have 8-10 hours per week to study the assignments, write
their reports and interact with the instructor. To meet the needs of
international students this course is open 24/7.

Tuition is $150 for this 3 week class and includes editing suggestions
upon request. Enrollment is limited to 10 students.

Address questions to:
Nancy Holden
JewishGen-Education@lyris.JewishGen.org

If you have questions, I will be glad to review your project before you
enroll.
