Early-Bird Conference Discount Ends Thursday! #unitedkingdom

IAJGS Conference Chairs
 

Even if you have already registered, please forward this message to others
who you think might be interested in attending the conference.

--- Early-Bird Discount Ends Thursday

Early-bird registration for the full Conference at the discounted price of
$325 ends at 11:59 pm CDT (GMT-5), Thursday, May 9, 2019. If you plan to
register for the conference, you should do so promptly to save $50 per
registration.

You can decide later about the extra Conference activities, such as
Computer Workshops, Breakfasts with the Experts, SIG Luncheons, the Gala
Banquet, the Reception at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and the Cemetery
Tours.

--- Hotel Reservations

Many people took advantage of the opportunity that we announced five
months ago to reserve rooms at the Conference hotel at a special rate
(www.hotel.iajgs2019.org). Now that more than 500 people have already
registered for the Conference, the Hilton has reached capacity. (Since
some people are releasing rooms -- which, until July 8, return to our pool
-- it is worth checking back with the Hilton >from time to time to see if
rooms have become available.)

To help people find other convenient places to stay at special Conference
rates, we have begun to open up overflow hotels
(www.overflow.iajgs2019.org). Currently, there are two -- the Marriott
(www.marriott.iajgs2019.org) and the Westin (www.westin.iajgs2019.org) --
both of which have small blocks of rooms for the Conference. As the Hilton
did several times as our block filled up, the other hotels have been
adding rooms. So if you find that you cannot get a room at the Conference
rate, try again.

We are very confident that everyone who attends the Conference will be
able to find a suitable hotel room. If you would like to share a room,
contact the Roommate Coordinator at roommates@iajgs2019.org.

--- Program Schedule

The Program and Schedule (www.program.iajgs2019.org) for the Conference
was first announced a couple of weeks ago. A number of further adjustments
have been required since then, but the schedule is now almost completely
settled, so you can make your plans.

--- Program Overview

The main Conference will start Sunday morning at 10:15 with the first of
some 184 lecture presentations among more than 300 activities. Sunday will
include the popular SHARE Fair, and the Exhibit Hall will 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'oeuvres
will be served.

In addition to the lectures, there will be nine SIG luncheons during the
week and 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".

--- Audio Recordings with Slides

With such a full program -- as many as nine simultaneous activities -- you
might have a hard time attending all the sessions you would like to. We
have a solution for that problem! As at previous conferences in the U.S.,
the superb Fleetwood audio recordings (www.audio.iajgs2019.org) will be
offered. Almost all sessions are recorded, and most of the recordings have
a high quality audio track synchronized with a video track showing images
of the presenters' slides.

The full package of audio recordings can be pre-ordered on the online
registration form at a substantial discount.

JGSGKC meeting announcement #general

Richard Rosenstock <richard@...>
 

From: Richard@rosenstock.net
Date; Sunday May 12, 2019, 2:00 PM

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Kansas City will present the next

Early-bird registration for the full Conference at the discounted price of
$325 ends at 11:59 pm CDT (GMT-5), Thursday, May 9, 2019. If you plan to
register for the conference, you should do so promptly to save $50 per
registration.

You can decide later about the extra Conference activities, such as
Computer Workshops, Breakfasts with the Experts, SIG Luncheons, the Gala
Banquet, the Reception at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and the Cemetery
Tours.

--- Hotel Reservations

Many people took advantage of the opportunity that we announced five
months ago to reserve rooms at the Conference hotel at a special rate
(www.hotel.iajgs2019.org). Now that more than 500 people have already
registered for the Conference, the Hilton has reached capacity. (Since
some people are releasing rooms -- which, until July 8, return to our pool
-- it is worth checking back with the Hilton >from time to time to see if
rooms have become available.)

To help people find other convenient places to stay at special Conference
rates, we have begun to open up overflow hotels
(www.overflow.iajgs2019.org). Currently, there are two -- the Marriott
(www.marriott.iajgs2019.org) and the Westin (www.westin.iajgs2019.org) --
both of which have small blocks of rooms for the Conference. As the Hilton
did several times as our block filled up, the other hotels have been
adding rooms. So if you find that you cannot get a room at the Conference
rate, try again.

We are very confident that everyone who attends the Conference will be
able to find a suitable hotel room. If you would like to share a room,
contact the Roommate Coordinator at roommates@iajgs2019.org.

--- Program Schedule

The Program and Schedule (www.program.iajgs2019.org) for the Conference
was first announced a couple of weeks ago. A number of further adjustments
have been required since then, but the schedule is now almost completely
settled, so you can make your plans.

--- Program Overview

The main Conference will start Sunday morning at 10:15 with the first of
some 184 lecture presentations among more than 300 activities. Sunday will
include the popular SHARE Fair, and the Exhibit Hall will 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'oeuvres
will be served.

In addition to the lectures, there will be nine SIG luncheons during the
week and 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".

--- Audio Recordings with Slides

With such a full program -- as many as nine simultaneous activities -- you
might have a hard time attending all the sessions you would like to. We
have a solution for that problem! As at previous conferences in the U.S.,
the superb Fleetwood audio recordings (www.audio.iajgs2019.org) will be
offered. Almost all sessions are recorded, and most of the recordings have
a high quality audio track synchronized with a video track showing images
of the presenters' slides.

The full package of audio recordings can be pre-ordered on the online
registration form at a substantial discount.

handwritten Hebrew letters, could regular Hebrew letter be provided. These
poems are written by Ida Rozenberg who survived the Holocaust and her family
would like to eventually publish the poems.

I have posted 4 poems in Yiddish for which I need an English translation as
well as the Yiddish words written in English. Since the script is
handwritten Hebrew letters, could regular Hebrew letter be provided. These
poems are written by Ida Rozenberg who survived the Holocaust and her family
would like to eventually publish the poems.
They are on ViewMate at the following address ...

Early-Bird Conference Discount Ends Thursday! #poland

IAJGS Conference Chairs
 

Even if you have already registered, please forward this message to others
who you think might be interested in attending the conference.

--- Early-Bird Discount Ends Thursday

Early-bird registration for the full Conference at the discounted price of
$325 ends at 11:59 pm CDT (GMT-5), Thursday, May 9, 2019. If you plan to
register for the conference, you should do so promptly to save $50 per
registration.

You can decide later about the extra Conference activities, such as
Computer Workshops, Breakfasts with the Experts, SIG Luncheons, the Gala
Banquet, the Reception at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and the Cemetery
Tours.

--- Hotel Reservations

Many people took advantage of the opportunity that we announced five
months ago to reserve rooms at the Conference hotel at a special rate
(www.hotel.iajgs2019.org). Now that more than 500 people have already
registered for the Conference, the Hilton has reached capacity. (Since
some people are releasing rooms -- which, until July 8, return to our pool
-- it is worth checking back with the Hilton >from time to time to see if
rooms have become available.)

To help people find other convenient places to stay at special Conference
rates, we have begun to open up overflow hotels
(www.overflow.iajgs2019.org). Currently, there are two -- the Marriott
(www.marriott.iajgs2019.org) and the Westin (www.westin.iajgs2019.org) --
both of which have small blocks of rooms for the Conference. As the Hilton
did several times as our block filled up, the other hotels have been
adding rooms. So if you find that you cannot get a room at the Conference
rate, try again.

We are very confident that everyone who attends the Conference will be
able to find a suitable hotel room. If you would like to share a room,
contact the Roommate Coordinator at roommates@iajgs2019.org.

--- Program Schedule

The Program and Schedule (www.program.iajgs2019.org) for the Conference
was first announced a couple of weeks ago. A number of further adjustments
have been required since then, but the schedule is now almost completely
settled, so you can make your plans.

--- Program Overview

The main Conference will start Sunday morning at 10:15 with the first of
some 184 lecture presentations among more than 300 activities. Sunday will
include the popular SHARE Fair, and the Exhibit Hall will 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'oeuvres
will be served.

In addition to the lectures, there will be nine SIG luncheons during the
week and 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".

--- Audio Recordings with Slides

With such a full program -- as many as nine simultaneous activities -- you
might have a hard time attending all the sessions you would like to. We
have a solution for that problem! As at previous conferences in the U.S.,
the superb Fleetwood audio recordings (www.audio.iajgs2019.org) will be
offered. Almost all sessions are recorded, and most of the recordings have
a high quality audio track synchronized with a video track showing images
of the presenters' slides.

The full package of audio recordings can be pre-ordered on the online
registration form at a substantial discount.
