One of the unique attributes of IAJGS conferences is our resource room with access to excellent databases. Many other genealogical conferences do not offer this wonderful resource to their attendees. Please take advantage of the databases during the conference.

 

Suggestion: Bring your USB drives if you prefer to make copies of records you find.  While this year the conference is having a smaller resource room—only 4 computers—the cost to rent them in Poland was extremely high- and many of the attendees will be visiting sites outside the hotel.

 

The resource room hours are:

Sunday 3-5 PM

Monday-Wednesday 8Am-5Pm

Thursday 8Am- 12 noon.

 

I am delighted to announce the following databases will be available in the resource room:

 

Ancestry.com

Newspapers.com

Fold3.com

 

Beit Hatfutsot for Dialogue

JewishGen

Mi Polin

Polish State Archives including Szkujarchiwach (the National Digitalization Project)

POLIN Museum - Genealogy Resource Center

Ringelblum Jewish Historical Institute - Genealogy Department

 

Yad Vashem For appointments with Yad Vashem representatives there will be sign-up sheets—at the hospitality desk.  Their databases will only be on computers with people from Yad Vashem NOT on the resource room computers

 

ProQuest. ProQuest Day will be Wednesday, August 8 and they have also permitted us to have access for the half day the resource room is open on Thursday August 9 (The resource room closes early on Thursday to set up for the gala banquet that evening.)

 As in past years there is usually a line up for people wanting to use the ProQuest databases. There will be a sign-up sheet at the hospitality desk and if there is a long wait list time will be limited to 20 minutes sessions.
