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!

Volunteer help!!! #romania

Rosanne Leeson
 

Dear All,

This is a very serious plea for some volunteers to come forward to help
keep the Rom-SIG running as smoothly as before!

We have been running along with the very expert Bob Wascou as our
Research Coordinator . He has handled all matters pertaining to the
acquiring of data, payments for same, as well as the distribution of
those records to our wonderful volunteers for data entry, and validation,
writing the Introductions to each database, and then sending in the
completed material to JewishGen for placement online. Jeffrey Gorney
has been a hero by coming to our rescue. However, sadly Bob had to go
for his severe surgery before Jeffrey even had a chance to get properly
trained in those procedures. What we need is someone else with good
tech skills to come onboard to work with Jeffrey, and between them to
figure out the ways in which all of this work was done. I myself have
no real clues as to what it was that Bob did, though hopefully we will
be able to get that information and make sure it is properly written up
for the future!

However, this incident proves how vulnerable we are to having just one
or two person who knows how this SIG is run! Anything could happen to
anyone of us and we need to be prepared, and think about the future of
the Rom-SIG. I, myself, am no longer a kid, and have been at this for
over 20 years. In fact, in desperation I will do what a lady is not
supposed to do - namely tell you my age - which 84. Others among you
must seriously consider volunteering if you wish this SIG to continue!
WE need more members to work with us, perhaps to form a committee,
as in other SIGs.

If you would be interested in joining in please do contact me ASAP!
Without others to step in that could be the end of the SIG, and all of
our efforts on your behalf! I look forward to hearing >from at least
some of you . We need new blood!

Warsaw directories recently made searchable #poland

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

Recently added to the http://genealogyindexer.org search engine, 11
more Warsaw directories, all including homeowner lists: yearbooks for
1904-1906 (Rocznik Warszawski) and business directories for 1878,
1880-1886 (Rafalskiego Warszawski Rocznik Adresowy Firm Handlowych,
Przemyslowych i Rekodzielniczych). The business directories also
include a small number of business listings >from elsewhere in Poland.

With default search options, these and all other 1,500 sources will be
searched simultaneously. To show results >from recently-added sources
first, change the "Regular Sort" option to "New Matches First." To
limit searches to sources with a geographic scope of Warsaw, change
the "Any Place" option below the search box to "Warsaw." Note,
however, that directories with larger scope including Warsaw, such as
all of Poland or all of the Russian Empire, will not be included in
that case.

Search results link to scans of the corresponding pages on the
websites of the Mazovian Digital Library and University of Warsaw
Digital Library, which digitized these directories. To view the
scanned images, which are in the .DjVu file format, you will need to
install once a .DjVu plugin for your web browser. (I use the free
plugin that until recently was available from
http://www.caminova.net/en/downloads/download.aspx?id=1. However,
that link is not currently working, and it appears that development of
the plugin is transitioning to another company called Cuminas. So, if
you do not yet have a .DjVu plugin, you might have to try a different
one or wait until the transition is complete and a plugin is available
from Cuminas.)
To browse the scanned images, instead of searching them, follow the
links at http://genealogyindexer.org/directories#Warsaw.
