CORRECTED TIME/DATE - Romania Research Division Meeting (Thurs, Aug. 13, 12:30 EST) #announcements #jgs-iajgs

Michael Moritz

Apologies for the confusion -- the Romania Research Division (formerly Rom-SIG) annual meeting will be held tomorrow, Thursday, August 13, at 12:30 Eastern Standard Time (i.e., New York time).  We look forward to seeing familiar and new faces for our presentation tomorrow!


We hope you will join us for a meeting of the Jewishgen Romanian Research Division (session code 4009) at the annual IAJGS conference which is being held virtually this year.  This meeting will start at 12:30 PM EDT on Thursday the 13 of August.  Please check to join your local time.  The meeting is open to anyone with interest in Jewish Romanian ancestors and is at no cost to participants.  Registration is required ahead of time.  Please go to well in advance of the meeting to be sure you understand how to participate.

We will have updates and information about our projects and plans.  The meeting is strictly limited in time to just under 1 hour.  If time permits, there will be open discussion.  Minimally, please send your questions and comments in the Chat Room function of the program being used for the meeting. 

This paragraph from the website is an overview of the Free Access programs, of which this session is one.  The link contained within is for registration.

Free Access to Many Programs (17 July 2020): There is now a “Free Limited Access” option on the Registration Form that allows you to attend at no cost the IAJGS Annual Meeting & Awards, the IAJGS Leadership Seminars, the JewishGen Annual Meeting, and—best of all—the Special Interest Group (SIG) and Birds-of-a-Feather (BOF) meetings. You must register and tell us who you are (that keeps us all safe). It also gives you the amazing opportunity to share with other conference attendees up to 8 surnames and 8 ancestral towns in our conference Family Finder. (And you can always upgrade to “full conference attendee” later if you wish.)

We look forward to welcoming you all to this meeting.  Enjoy your participation in the conference!

I’m quite sure you mean 12:30 PM EDT. (Eastern Daylight Time). It’s summer right now and we are on summer time.

You mentioned registration. Is it a correct assumption that if we are already a paid participant for the IAJGS conference that we can attend without further registration?
