I hope to meet each of you personally at the forthcoming IAJGS 2017 conference in Orlando, FL, between the dates 23-28 July 2017. Hurry and register before the deadline of Early bird Registration tomorrow, Thursday, 20 April. Below are some of our programs: LitvakSIG will be at the SHARE Fair to greet you - stop by and see us; we'll be there in person and will try to help you solve some of your mysteries. Wednesday, 26 July is LitvakSIG day. I'll be presenting a basic guide to getting started with your Litvak roots. Judy Baston then will give her outstanding presentation, Enhancing Your Litvak Research, on how to go about the search and navigating the LitvakSIG website - it's a must - she always has something new to teach us. We'll have our annual meeting with our reports and elections to the board followed by the LitvakSIG luncheon when Alisa New will greet us. Alisa wrote the fabulous book, Jacob's Cane - sign up early - last year we were overbooked almost before the registration began. Later that afternoon Eli Rabinowitz will present the movie, in the Footsteps of Zalman Tzoref: Tracing 200 Years of Litvak Family History . Many of the District Research coordinators will be with us holding separate functions - BOG, Birds of a Feather: Jill Anderson will be holding a combined meeting for Telsai and Siauliai, Judy Baston will greet those interested in Lida/Oshmiany, Rhoda Miller will hold the Svencionys meeting, Suwalki Gubernia will be held online with Dorothy Leivers from Leeds, England, Jill Anderson will be happy to meet all Vilnius reseachers, and those interested in Kupsikis/Rokiskis are urged to attend the BOF. Of interest we heard from Phil Goldfarb, President JGS Tulsa, who wrotethe following information: "...During my presentation on the "History of Passports and Passport applications of Famous Individuals in the U.S." I will have a section devoted to Russian Empire Internal Passports, Nansen Passports for Refugees, and Lithuanian Internal Passports. The presentation is Monday, July 24 at 9:45 am. We look forward to seeing you in Orlando. Come join us! Carol Hoffman LitvakSIG President
