Is your ancestral region represented in the JRI-Poland.org database? Is your family from areas around... Warsaw? Galicia? Poznan? Suwalki? Kielce-Radom? Lublin-Zamosc? Krakow? Do you feel close ties to a Birds-of-a-Feather Group, a Facebook, Yahoo Group or other Polish-related Special Interest Group? Bring your friends, sign up for a table together, and share your enthusiasm at the JRI-Poland Luncheon on Sunday, July 23, 2017 from 12 pm to 1:30 pm. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- The JRI-Poland luncheon is on the first day of the conference, so it’s an early opportunity to make new connections, see old friends, and plan or promote your regional activities for the week. This may be an excellent opportunity to begin to discuss a group visit to your ancestral shtetlach in conjunction with the 2018 IAJGS conference in Warsaw! Join the JRI-Poland Family at lunch and make meaningful connections with other researchers interested in your ancestral geographical area(s). Please spread the word that the JRI-Poland luncheon will highlight the various regions represented in our database to promote conversation. Join us for lunch on that first Sunday. Sign up now to enable us to anticipate regional interest and seat you together with other researchers, including JRI-Poland board members, archives coordinators, and Birds-of-a-Feather (BOF) leaders, who share your localized interests. Robinn Magid’s (Lublin-Zamosc BOF co-coordinator) colorful presentation will describe a special gathering of Jews from the City of Lublin and the nearby towns to be held this summer, just prior to the Orlando conference. This "reunion" is being organized by a Lublin cultural center in cooperation with the City of Lublin to commemorate and honor 700 years of Jewish presence in Lublin. Jews from all over the world plan to return to Lublin to "meet anew" - which is the theme of the event. Robinn can be reached at: RobinnM [at] aol.com for questions or to sign up for a table representing a region. You may list a few regional preferences so we can try to place certain topical tables near each other, enabling you to “visit” the various regions represented in the JRI-Poland database. We will pair people with mutual interests where possible. We hope to spread some of this "Meeting Anew" enthusiasm to other places that are current or former territories of Poland. Come join us for a special afternoon! Stanley Diamond JRI-Poland Executive Director Robinn Magid Berkeley, California Lublin Archives Project Coordinator, JRI-Poland RobinnM [at] aol.com
