Philly 2009: Vienna databases

And here's an addition to the Resource Room that Tracing the Tribe neglected to report on when announced:

Those researching Vienna will be happy to know that the Vienna IKG databases will be available in the Resource Room.

For security reasons, they will not be on Resource Room computers, but only on Wolf-Erich Eckstein's laptop. Eckstein is the Vienna Jewish Community's Records Office manager.

Georg Gaugusch has covered the major Jewish families of Vienna in regards to genealogical and biographical data, and he will also be on hand.

Eckstein and Gaugusch will be in the Resource Room according to the following schedule:

Sunday, August 2: Eckstein, 3-5pm
Monday, August 3: Eckstein & Gaugusch, 11-12.30pm
Tuesday, August 4: Eckstein & Gaugusch, 7-9:30pm
Wednesday, August 5: Gaugusch, 2-4pm
The appearance of both men at the conference has been funded by E. Randol and Pamela Schoenberg for the Austria-Czech SIG.

Bring a thumbdrive/flashdrive/USB drive with you to the conference and do your part to save paper by directly downloading data! The conference is trying to be "green" this year.

See you in Philly!
