Romanian events at the IAJGS Conference

Time is almost here for the IAJGS Conference in Cleveland.  I’d like to point 
out a few sessions of interest to those with Romanian ancestry.  The JewishGen 
Romania SIG will have some events at the IAJGS conference that I hope will 
interest you.

SHARE Fair Sunday from 11:30-2:30 in Hope A B and C:  Please stop by to say 
hello and to have the opportunity to speak with members of the SIG leadership 
team to learn more about what the SIG offers to genealogists.  We welcome your 
questions and participation.

ROM Sig Meeting from 3:15 – 4:30 on Monday in Center Street C.  Michael Moritz 
will speak about the major Iasi project underway and his experiences to date.  
There will be ample opportunity for questions, comments and opportunities to 
let us know of your research interests.  We will offer several volunteer 
opportunities and will speak of the status of our other projects.

A second meeting, listed as the Jewishgen ROM Sig Board Meeting is really not a 
board meeting (we don’t have a board) but an opportunity for follow-up to any 
items from the first meeting, to continue discussion and meet people who were 
unable to make the first meeting.  That is scheduled on Tuesday at 1:45 in room 
Center Street B.

On Thursday, at 4:45 in Center Street D, Teven Laxer has a program 
“Eyewitnesses to the Shoah Highlight Search for Family in Three Countries” that 
includes his experiences in Romania doing personal research and encountering 
eyewitnesses to the events relevant to his history.  While not specifically a 
Romanian discussion, he anticipates that it would be of great interest to those 
researching Romania.

You are also invited to work on KehilaLinks pages commemorating your family’s 
Jewish communities.  Their history and way of life should be recorded, 
preserved and memorialized for future generations.  The KehilaLinks BOF on 
Thursday from 1:45 in Veterans A will be time to hear from others and to ask 
questions about creating or adding to pages for your communities.  Barbara 
Ellman is the technical coordinator for KehilaLinks and will chair this 
session.  From that team, if you do not have the “…necessary technical skills 
we have a team of dedicated volunteers who will create a webpage with the 
material provided.”

Welcome and enjoy the conference!
