Planning GerSIG Content for the IAJGS Conference in Boston

One of the many genealogy things I get up to is that I am actively involved with GerSIG, the German-Jewish Special Interest Group at JewishGen. My role is to lead on our group’s arrangements at the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies’ Conference which takes place each summer.

This summer the IAJGS Conference will be held in Boston, from 4 to 9 August. Although the draft programme is not yet up on the Boston conference website, the conference team have been working very hard, and news about which talks have been selected for delivery at then conference is just coming through.

I’m delighted and excited to be able to announce here, as well as via the GerSIG mailing list that our sponsored guest speaker this summer will be Dr Joachim Hahn. Dr Hahn is webmaster of the amazing Alemannia Judaica website. I’ll be posting more about our arrangements for conference soon, but in the meantime, more information about Dr Hahn can be read from his citation on the Obermayer German Jewish History Award website. Dr Hahn was one of the first worty winners of the award, back in 2000, and the citation about him from that time can be read at this link
