We are very pleased to share the following good news with everyone.

1. All conference registrants staying at the Sheraton hotel will
receive complimentary internet access in their guest room. If you
have not yet made your hotel reservation, do so without delay to
take advantage of this great deal. Use the link at the conference
website (the Hotel Registration button) to do so.

2. Not only will the banquet include the announcement of the IAJGS
Achievement Awards, the wonderful entertainment by Yisrael Campbell,
but there will also be drawings for 3 prizes. Those prizes are 4
hours of research by the following individuals (and the country of
research): Jordan Auslander (U.S.); Michael Goldstein (Israel); and
Anthony Joseph (U.K). If you have not yet purchased your banquet(s),
be sure to do so before the deadline of July 19, 2009 (midnight U.S.

conference week.

We thank Jordan, Michael, and Anthony for generously contributing
their professional time and expertise for these drawings.

We also encourage you to look at the list of breakfasts with experts,
SIG lunches, workshops and tours. Any one, or more of them, will
enhance your conference experience because they are certainly worth
attending. Make sure you purchase your ticket(s) for these events to
guarantee that you get a space.

One of the workshops is already full and we have added a repeat
performance (A second beginner/intermediate Family Tree Maker session
will be held on Thursday, August 6 >from 8:15 to 10:15 AM.)

The breakfast (Monday, August 3, 7 AM - 8 AM) with Miriam Weiner and

SEREBRENIK and Miriam KOCH (my paternal aunt), specifically, their
marriage and their travel permits to Palestine in/about 1938. In
looking at the LDS database, data such as permits, etc are filed
in a very specific way, but NOT alphabetically. The rules are
somewhat confusing to me so I am asking for help to clarify, and
hopefully, find the correct film roll so that I can review the
documents. ... The category seems to Meldeamt/Meldezettel."

The answer to Milton's question is here in Peter Lowe's article on
the LDS films on the Austria-Czech SIG website. I must admit I have
never used the system, but I know others have been successful:

http://www.jewishgen.org/AustriaCzech/TOWNS/Austria/meldezettel.htm#Problems%20in%20identifying%20film

You will be able to read about the complexity of the system. LDS have
only a small proportion of the 3 million or more Meldezettel held in
Vienna - and millions more [pre-1906] were disposed of as superfluous
to needs.
To see them in location in the Gasometer archives is indeed wonderous.
It also saves having to use this system as someone else pulls them out
for you. Of course the public is not allowed access - once misfiled you
would never find the Meldezettel again!

The Prague Conscriptions {Meldezettel} also have a confusing method of
alphabetical {partially phonetic} indexing:
http://www.nacr.cz/english/conscriptions.aspx

but here we will soon have most of them digitised - surely one of the
most valuable genealogical resources for Habsburg Jews {and non-Jews!}
we have today: http://digi.nacr.cz/prihlasky2/indexen.php

They have just been updated {July 1st 2009} and now include 1,140,373
records up to the end of letter O. We can find OSERS Aron Veit born in
1762 and all his family on-line: OSERS Aron Veit (1762) - Sara (1792);
Marie (1815); Julie (1818), Veit (1817). He would be smiling, I am sure
at this turn of events.
