Vast array of databases at this year's IAJGS Conference in Seattle Aug 7012 #belarus

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

The 36th annual conference of the International Association of Jewish
Genealogical Societies will offer an extensive and rich array of
research databases at this year's conference at the lovely Sheraton
Hotel in the heart of downtown Seattle. The conference runs >from August
7 to 12, 2016. Banks of computers in the Sheraton's resource room will
be linked to a vast array of paid subscription and "behind the wall"
databases, all of which will be available for free.

Among the databases that will be running for the duration of the
conference are: the Ancestry family of websites (including
Ancestry.com, Fold3.com, Newspapers.com and Archives.com); FindMyPast;
GenTeam; MyHeritage family of websites (including MyHeritage.com,
Geni.com and World Vital Records); Godfrey.org; the New England Historic
Genealogical Society; Jewishdata.com; and many more. Yad Vashem and the
United States Holocaust Memorial Museum will also make their extensive
archives available through dedicated computers.

In addition, on Wednesday August 9, for one day only, the uniquely
comprehensive ProQuest newspaper archive will be available in its
entirety. "Last time we offered ProQuest, there were lines out the
door," says Jan Meisels Allen, who is in charge of the conference
databases. "Our conference has a unique emphasis on research," Allen
adds. "You can further your research while enjoying all the other
benefits of the conference."

This summer's conference will also feature a Jewish Film Festival put
together by leading Jewish film scholar and teacher of cinema Eric
Goldman. Other highlights of the Seattle conference include the opening
night keynote address by Dr. Devin Naar, chair of the University of
Washington Sephardic Studies Program, and the banquet address by "legal
genealogist" Judy Russell, a Certified Genealogist and Certified
Genealogical Lecturer. And, as at previous conferences, remote
streaming of selected programs will be available through LIVE!

The conference's Early Registration period, which runs until April 30,
offers the lowest fees, with savings of $55 for the full conference. For

Yizkor Book Project, March 2016 #ciechanow #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Yet another month has whooshed past and it's the time to let you know what
has been accomplished in the Yizkor Book Project over the last 31 days. I
would like to point out some particularly notable projects that were added
or updated in March:

The first was the completion of the online placement of the translation of
the Golshany, Belarus Yizkor Book, which was generously donated to our
project by Jack Leibman and we are most thankful for this significant
donation.

Another notable addition was the addition of the "Biographical Dictionary of
Jewish Resistance" book which was provided to us by Yad Vashem. The list of
the names appearing in it was painstakingly translated for us by Shalom
Bronstein and it contains an enormous amount of information on a large
number of Jewish Partisans and is definitely worth your perusal.

I am also pleased to note that Esther Weinschelbaum has kindly sent us a
Hebrew translation of the Kamen Kashirskiy Book which joins the ever growing
Hebrew translations about former Jewish communities in the Ukraine and
Esther is well-deserving of our grateful thanks.

Finally, as I've noted before, the Yizkor Books in Print Project doesn't
stop for a minute and just this last month, we are happy to announce that
the publishing of "The Book of Dembitz". This and the many other books
already published by the YBIP Project are in high demand. Of course, there
are still many books waiting to be published and the work goes on as we
"speak".

#Ciechanow #Poland Yizkor Book Project, March 2016 #ciechanow #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Yet another month has whooshed past and it's the time to let you know what
has been accomplished in the Yizkor Book Project over the last 31 days. I
would like to point out some particularly notable projects that were added
or updated in March:

The first was the completion of the online placement of the translation of
the Golshany, Belarus Yizkor Book, which was generously donated to our
project by Jack Leibman and we are most thankful for this significant
donation.

Another notable addition was the addition of the "Biographical Dictionary of
Jewish Resistance" book which was provided to us by Yad Vashem. The list of
the names appearing in it was painstakingly translated for us by Shalom
Bronstein and it contains an enormous amount of information on a large
number of Jewish Partisans and is definitely worth your perusal.

I am also pleased to note that Esther Weinschelbaum has kindly sent us a
Hebrew translation of the Kamen Kashirskiy Book which joins the ever growing
Hebrew translations about former Jewish communities in the Ukraine and
Esther is well-deserving of our grateful thanks.

Finally, as I've noted before, the Yizkor Books in Print Project doesn't
stop for a minute and just this last month, we are happy to announce that
the publishing of "The Book of Dembitz". This and the many other books
already published by the YBIP Project are in high demand. Of course, there
are still many books waiting to be published and the work goes on as we
"speak".

And now for all the changes and additions that were carried out in the
Yizkor Book Project over March.

Vast array of databases at this year's IAJGS Conference in Seattle Aug 7012 #poland #warsaw

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

The 36th annual conference of the International Association of Jewish
Genealogical Societies will offer an extensive and rich array of
research databases at this year's conference at the lovely Sheraton
Hotel in the heart of downtown Seattle. The conference runs >from August
7 to 12, 2016. Banks of computers in the Sheraton's resource room will
be linked to a vast array of paid subscription and "behind the wall"
databases, all of which will be available for free.

Among the databases that will be running for the duration of the
conference are: the Ancestry family of websites (including
Ancestry.com, Fold3.com, Newspapers.com and Archives.com); FindMyPast;
GenTeam; MyHeritage family of websites (including MyHeritage.com,
Geni.com and World Vital Records); Godfrey.org; the New England Historic
Genealogical Society; Jewishdata.com; and many more. Yad Vashem and the
United States Holocaust Memorial Museum will also make their extensive
archives available through dedicated computers.

In addition, on Wednesday August 9, for one day only, the uniquely
comprehensive ProQuest newspaper archive will be available in its
entirety. "Last time we offered ProQuest, there were lines out the
door," says Jan Meisels Allen, who is in charge of the conference
databases. "Our conference has a unique emphasis on research," Allen
adds. "You can further your research while enjoying all the other
benefits of the conference."

This summer's conference will also feature a Jewish Film Festival put
together by leading Jewish film scholar and teacher of cinema Eric
Goldman. Other highlights of the Seattle conference include the opening
night keynote address by Dr. Devin Naar, chair of the University of
Washington Sephardic Studies Program, and the banquet address by "legal
genealogist" Judy Russell, a Certified Genealogist and Certified
Genealogical Lecturer. And, as at previous conferences, remote
streaming of selected programs will be available through LIVE!

The conference's Early Registration period, which runs until April 30,
offers the lowest fees, with savings of $55 for the full conference. For
more information, contact the conference co-chairs Janette Silverman,
Phyllis Grossman, and Chuck Weinstein through the conference website
www.iajgs2016.org.
