Jewish Conference in Washington, D.C.

Just came back from this conference - what a great opportunity! This was held at the Grand Hyatt which was a great venue. Spent a lot of time on the computers helping attendees to try to locate genealogical records so that they can trace their ancestry. Many new records have been posted from eastern Europe by FamilySearch with preliminary cataloging in an effort to put the images online quicker. This can mean that the description is in the language of the record without English "sub-titles".
