The JewishGen Danzig/Gdańsk Research Division will have a free online meeting on Wednesday, August 12, 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM Eastern Time U.S. (New York), as part of the IAJGS Conference that was planned to be in San Diego but will now be held entirely online. To attend this free meeting, you must first register for the conference at https://s4.goeshow.com/iajgs/annual/2020/registration_form.cfm. There is an option for "free limited access," which enables you to attend the Danzig meeting, other SIG/BOF meetings, and the JewishGen Annual Meeting at no cost (but most conference presentations are not available to free attendees).
After you register on the IAJGS Conference website, please also fill out the form at https://forms.gle/LFrCHVbZwNfcX1mb9, which will let me know about your research interests. Note: filling out this Google form is not registration, you must register on the IAJGS Conference website in order to attend.
The IAJGS has generously allowed us to offer this meeting for free, with the understanding that it will not be a formal presentation, but an informal networking session. Discussion will revolve around our current projects/volunteer opportunities and your personal research. Please come prepared to chat about your Danzig research interests (e.g., surnames, records). You do not need to have a webcam or microphone on your computer, there will be a text chat option. You will receive further instructions about how to join the meeting.
Meeting time on Wednesday, August 12: New York 4-5 PM, Los Angeles 1-2 PM, London 9-10 PM, Gdańsk 10-11 PM, Jerusalem 11 PM-12 AM, Sydney 6-7 AM (Aug 13)
