Genealogy is like a jigsaw puzzle, but you don't have the box top, so you don't know what the picture is supposed to look like. As you start putting the puzzle together, you realize some pieces are missing, and eventually you figure out that some of the pieces you started with don't actually belong to this puzzle. I'll help you discover the right pieces for your puzzle and assemble them into a picture of your family.

IIJG Call for Research Proposals
The International Institute for Jewish Genealogy (IIJG) has issued its annual Call for Research Proposals for original research in the field of Jewish genealogy, to be carried out in the academic year of 2011-2012. Successful applicants will be awarded grants of up to $10,000.
Proposals are requested by May 31, 2011. Those meeting strict standards of academic excellence will be judged by the extent to which they broaden the horizons of Jewish genealogical research and/or create innovative tools or technologies to assist Jewish genealogists and family historians in their work.
The CFRP and Instructions to Applicants can be found on the Institute's Web site under RESEARCH/Research Grants. These instructions should be followed carefully, as only applications in the correct form will be considered.
Successful applicants will be announced on September 1, 2011.
