Greetings from JewishGen #warsaw #poland

Warren Blatt <wblatt@...>
 

As you are aware, Susan King has stepped down as the Managing
Director of JewishGen, after 20 years of dedicated service.
In addition to founding JewishGen, Susan has been an
inspiration and motivating force for all of us, and will be
greatly missed. We at JewishGen and the Museum of Jewish
Heritage wish Susan all the best, and will continue to
embrace her spirit and dream as we move forward.

As I assume the post of Managing Director, I want to send
greetings to those who already know me, and introduce
myself to what I hope will be new friends and colleagues.
I have been part of JewishGen since 1990, and been its
Editor-in-Chief for many years.

As JewishGen moves into this new phase, we will be integrating
more fully with our parent organization, the Museum of Jewish
Heritage. As of April 1, 2008, the offices of JewishGen have
been relocated >from League City, Texas to the Museum of Jewish
Heritage - A Living Memorial to the Holocaust, located in
Manhattan's Battery Park. JewishGen has been an affiliate of
the Museum since 2003, and this move was initiated in order to
better integrate JewishGen's functions with Museum programs
and provide a seamless delivery of services to the JewishGen
community.

The mailing address of JewishGen is now:
JewishGen, Inc., Museum of Jewish Heritage, 36 Battery Place,
New York, NY 10280. Phone: (646) 437-4326. Fax: (646) 437-4328.

One of the unfortunate consequences of this transition is that
two of our dedicated employees were not able to join us in the
new location. The entire JewishGen community joins to acknowledge
the work of Joanna Fletcher and Becky Rogers, who have served
JewishGen for over 8 years.

Over the next few months, in addition to becoming more fully
integrated with the Museum, we will be announcing several
new projects, as well as giving you a glimpse into our plans
for the future of JewishGen.

Michael Tobias and I continue Susan's tradition, by striving to
grow JewishGen and take it to the next level. But be assured
that we will not venture too far >from our roots; we are built
on our volunteers. JewishGen's volunteers are our wealth and
strength, and that will always remain. We are always looking
for enthusiastic volunteers to join our family. Both Michael
and I hope to see many of you at the IAJGS Conference in
Chicago this summer.

I look forward to working with all of you over the months and
years ahead, as JewishGen continues to be the leading internet
resource for Jewish genealogy.

Again, I wish to greet all of you, and as we move into this
holiday season, wish you and your family a Chag Sameach and
Happy Pesach, >from me and my family.

Warren

A Message from JewishGen's Founder #warsaw #poland

Susan E. King <susan.king@...>
 

There are times when it's almost impossible to find the right words, and
perhaps this is one of those times.

Twenty-two years ago (seems like eons), I had an idea that grew up to be
JewishGen. Over the years you may have been one of those wonderful people
who offered help and together we nurtured that brainchild of mine. Together
we loved it and lived it.

It has been an extraordinary ride and looking back >from where we have come,
we can all take enormous pride in what we have established collectively. It
is a legacy that I know will follow me wherever I go for the rest of my
life. There is nothing better than knowing that you have fulfilled a dream
and to know you have made a difference in so many lives. I will cherish
these years forever.

I am ever so grateful for the true friendships I've developed along the way,
ever so grateful for the spirit of the volunteers who have worked with so
much dedication over these many years creating and building a real
grassroots effort that was at the core of my vision and so grateful that
JewishGen has been at the center of my life for so many years.

I can't thank everyone enough for lending their talents, their skills, their
hearts, their ideas and their time. Effective Monday, March 31st, I will no
longer be associated with JewishGen either as an employee or as a director.
Even though I may be moving forward and perhaps defining yet another life
purpose, please know that JewishGen and all of you who walked the walk with
me, nurturing my dream along with yours, will remain in my heart forever.

We are very pleased to let you all know that the Chicago 2008 program is now

the "Program" button on the left side of the home page. We believe that
this is a strong program with quite a number of new speakers and topics plus
many of those you have enjoyed and learned >from at past conferences. Just a
few of the areas to be covered include Midwestern Jewish genealogy research,

very remarkable SIG programming (including experts >from European archives)
and much more. We do expect some additional programs to be included in the
coming weeks -- so stay tuned. Please note that dates and times of some
sessions may change.

On March 28, during the IAJGS board meeting in Philadelphia (March 28-29), a
drawing was held to determine the winner of the free hotel room during the
conference. We thank all who registered for both the conference and hotel
room by March 15 in order to qualify; we thank the Chicago Marriott Downtown
Magnificent Mile for contributing this great prize. And, the winner is....
Barbara Freedman of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. This will be
Barbara's sixth IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy. We know
that you all join us in congratulating Barbara.
