Hal Bookbinder
 

Hi,

You have only three weeks to sign up for the IAJGS Conference this
summer before the early bird discounts expire at 11:59pm, CDT, May 31.
Virtually all of the program is now available on the conference
website for you to review. (Although we will have a full film program,
We have not yet posted most of the films that will be offered).

Check out the conference website at www.iajgs2014.org where you can
evaluate the program, register for the conference and link to the
Hilton Hotel site for very special conference rates. The Website's FAQ
page should answer many of your questions.

One of the special events we will be offering is a bus tour of
Ancestry.com's main campus in Provo (about 40 miles south of the
conference hotel in SLC). We are also bringing in >from Washington D.C.
the one-man play, "Time Capsule in a Milk Can". This very special
play, developed by the Smithsonian Associates for the US Holocaust
Memorial Museum, explores Emmanuel Ringelblum and the Warsaw Ghetto
archives.

The program, the nearby Family History Library, the many free
databases which will be available, the films and more will make this a
valuable and memorable genealogical experience. Please do plan on
coming. It is where your genealogical friends will be!

Yizkor Book Project, April 2014 #warsaw #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

It is sometimes quite amazing what can be done with the days
and hours in a month and quite a few dedicated volunteers.
The results of their labor within the Yizkor Book Project
is listed below, and continues as we "speak".

Although I frequently note our volunteers (well, at least try to),
I should really point out that a great deal of translations are
carried out by our very professional paid translators. Whilst
I prefer not to list them here for fear of forgetting someone,
you'll see their names appear frequently in the translations
appearing in the Yizkor Book site and I for one, am very
grateful for the excellent work they do within our project.

As you may be aware, their payment comes >from the kind donations
of people wishing to make sure that the contents of the Yizkor
books are made readily available to those of us who don't read
Yiddish and/or Hebrew, and will be available for the present
and generations to come. If this way of immortalizing our lost
communities is important to you, we welcome your donations to
one of our many projects which can be found at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/PL.asp?c=23

If the Yizkor book for the community of your interest
has yet to be set up as a project, please contact me
and we'll see how we can get such a project moving.
