How to attend the IAJGS conference when you can't get to Seattle #warsaw #poland

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

My Co-Chairs and I know >from the emails we get, that there are so many
people who want to attend the upcoming conference in Seattle, Aug 7-12,
but who just can't fit the conference into their calendar or their
budget. Although virtually attending the conference isn't as fabulous
as being there, it does provide access to about 90% of all of the
conference sessions. We also know that many of the attendees are
frustrated at not being to attend every session, and since there are
over 235 sessions, that's obviously physically impossible, so we have
solutions for you.

There are two ways to hear/see what's happening at the conference, and
they work well together. I'll briefly describe each of them, since
their titles may not be descriptive enough. The first is LIVE! This
provides live streaming of sessions by some of our most popular
speakers. This means that if you have the time, you can watch (and
hear) the sessions as they are being presented, as if you were there!
The conference is in Seattle, Washington, so the time of each session is
listed in Pacific Daylight Time (UTC/GMT -7 hours). If you don't have
time to tune in while the session is streaming, no worries. After the
conference is over, you 90 days to access the session "on demand".

The other way to hear the sessions is to purchase the audio/slides
recording. Almost all of the sessions at the conference are being
recording (voice only) with the slides the presenter is using. Some
presenters do not have their slides being recorded, in which case, the
recording of that session is only audio. If you purchase this, you will
receive the whole package a few weeks after the conference is over and
be able to listen to the presentation and see the slides as your
leisure. Not all presentations that are on LIVE! are having audio
recordings made.

To purchase LIVE! and/or the audio and slides, go to the IAJGS 2016
website (http://www.iajgs2016.org/) then, under the registration tab,
Select New Registration;
Click "Go to Registration Form (for starting out)" near the bottom;
Click the gray New Registration button;
Enter your personal information and click Continue;
Select 5. Full LIVE! only (not attending in Seattle) or
7. Full LIVE! & Full Audio/slides (not attending in Seattle) and
continue to the end.

Of course, if you are attending the conference and want to purchase the
packages, there are options on the menu above to do that as well.

Looking forward to seeing many of you in Seattle!

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

We have two great opportunities for you. Both of these are available

1) You can still purchase LIVE! (and you will be able to throughout the
conference and afterwards. the advantage to purchasing now is that you
can view the sessions as they are happening through LIVE! streaming.
Can't arrange your schedule to fit our sessions? No worries - LIVE! for
those who purchase it, is available after the conference is over, on
demand for 90 days - that means you can pick the sessions yo want to
hear (maybe all of the ones on LIVE!) and listen to them as many time as
you want for 90 days.

Check out the conference program to see which sessions are LIVE! from
the conference website. LIVE! is sponsored by Family Search.

2) If you are in Seattle and can't make the conference, why don't you
join us for the opening session on Sunday evening, August 7, and stay
for a fantastic dessert reception. The keynote speaker, Dr. Devin Naar
is sponsored by MyHeritage, and the dessert reception fllowing is
sponsored by Ancestry.com

Both LIVE! and the Keynote/dessert reception are available through the
conference registration. Go to the conference website at

LIVE! Go to registration and choose "new registration to purchase LIVE!
and tickets to the keynote and dessert reception.

from under "About" and then "contacts" and contact the person you need
information >from directly.

See you in Seattle

Kolbuszowa and Suchostaw Region Research Groups - New Information #galicia

Susana Leistner Bloch
 

Dear Friends,

At the Suchostaw Region Research Group BOF meeting:

Wednesday, August 10
1:30 PM - 3:00 PM
Room: Cedar A

Logan Kleinwaks will demonstrate how to use his Genealogy Indexer
full-text and soundex search engine for important genealogical
resources. Search 584,000 pages of historical directories (business,
address, telephone, etc.), 91,000 pages of 207 Yizkor Books, and much
more.

Unfortunately Logan is not able to attend the Kolbuszowa meeting
scheduled for:

Wednesday, August 10
3:00 PM - 4:30 PM
Room: Cedar A

To give KRRG members the opportunity to attend Logan's demonstration
I have scheduled him for the last half hour of the SRRG meeting. All
KRRG members wishing to hear Logan are welcome to arrive half hour
earlier than the scheduled KRRG meeting.

See you in Seattle,

Susana

German transcription and translation--five postcards #galicia

Carol Sicherman <csicher@...>
 

Members of this list may recall that I have been working on a family
postcard collection. Just when I thought the resulting book was
complete, five more cards miraculously surfaced. I have posted them
on ViewMate. I would be so grateful for both a transcription and a
translation, since that is what my book contains. Here they are:

I am forever grateful to this community of expert volunteers.
