Resource Room Databases at the IAJGS Conference

The Resource Room Databases at the 29th International IAJGS Conference are still being worked on as we were waiting to post the list until some outstanding requests were finalized. Hopwever, there were inquiries and we are listing those which are confirmed, thus far, and when additional databases are confirmed a final list will be noticed.

Here is the list of confirmed databases on our 28 Resource Room Computers:-
Ancestry.com-
British Newspapers from the British Library-
FindMyPast.com/AncestorsonBoard.com-
Footnote.com-
Godfrey Library (without Newspaper Archive and World Vital Records)-
JewishGen.org-
NewsBank.com-
NewspaperArchive.com-
ProQuest (due to economy, as ProQuest has to pay the newspapers for theunlimited access, they will provide access to their databases only on oneday - that day will be announced later)- United States Holocaust Memorial Musuem-
World Vital Records.com

In addition, there will be a folder on each of the Resource Room Computers entitled, "Selected Genealogical Websites". It is not all encompassing ,but has many websites that should be of interest and helpful to the conference attendees. The subfolders include:-
General Interest-
Government Archives With Documents On-Line-
European and South African Websites-
Holocaust Websites- Israel Websites-
Latin America Websites-
Maps-
Newspapers (not covered in those above)-
Sephardic Websites-
