Tracing the Tribe has been quiet for a few days because I'm attending a conference on "The Jews of Catalan-speaking Lands."
The first two days were in Perpignan in southern France - which in medieval times was French Catalunya - and the second two days are in Barcelona. Tomorrow is the last day and will run from 9am-10pm with a multitude of interesting topics.
I'll be preparing a series of postings on the conference, as well as some new books I've acquired. Plans include a visit to archives in Girona and other towns, and visits to Tarrega and Tarragona.
Next week I will be in London to speak at the Jewish Genealogical Society of Great Britain seminar on October 28, and visit with Talalay and Dardashti cousins. A few more days in Barcelona and then finally back home.
