Talking about Jewish genealogy?

Have a great topic to talk about at this summer's 27th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy?

The deadline for the Call for Papers has been extended through December 31, so you've got a little while longer to produce a 125-word biography and a 125-word abstract, and submit it online at the event website.

The program committee will announce their decisions by February 1, 2007.

The conference will be held July 15-20, 2007, in Salt Lake City, Utah, and you can register online at the website (very user-friendly) for the conference and the hotel, and read about all other frequently updated event details.

This year, the conference is looking for topics of wide interest, new and/or unique, in areas not covered by other speakers. Of primary importance is that programs not have been presented at the past three annual events.
Additionally, the preference is for speakers who have performed extensive on-line or in-person research on Eastern Europe, South America and Israel.

Other areas of interest: Emigration/Immigration records, specifically from Hamburg, Bremen, Rotterdam and Liverpool. Methodology and little used/little known resources will also be considered.

For more information, see the website.
