"Using Our Whole Self"


  1. My name is Ed Osdoba. Live in Seattle. Family came to NYC from the Pale, Poland-Russia-Lithuania, 1913. Mostly chasid in Crown Heights. Name is also spelled Ozdoby, Osdovy, Ozdobi etc. Is a polish word. Anyone at the conference ever here of such a name? Nu?

  2. I suggest, if you have not done so already, add your family names to JewishGen's Family Finder. You should also consider posting a message on the IAJGS 2016 Discussion Group.

  3. I purchased conference streaming...how do I access the conference?

    1. If you are having issues accessing LIVE!, contact live@iajgs2016.org


Comments on posts are always welcome but will be approved before posting. I actually prefer to just let people comment without going through this rigmarole, but I've recently had to delete some posts that I had not vetted before publication. So, please don't be offended. I love to hear from you!
