July 2010

Dear Kremenets friends,

The Kremenets District Research Group Annual Meeting will be held at the IAJGS Conference on Monday, 12 July 2010 from 8:00 to 9:15 am. The 2010 Conference is being held in Los Angeles, California USA, from 10 July 2010 through 16 July 2010. Complete information about the Conference, including the program schedule is available at http://www.jgsla2010.com/. Check the Conference Schedule for the room where our meeting will be held.

Sheree and I will provide an update on our membership numbers and we will discuss the latest developments in our work, including a very exciting new project that is underway. As time permits, I will do some lookups for you in our new expanded Revision List database, which, by the time of the Conference will have about 25,000 entries.

I'll also bring you up-to-date on news about a new housing development in Kremenets that the municipal government has approved for construction next to the mass grave site where 10,000 to 12,000 Jews were murdered in August 1942. We are working to stop, or at least significantly modify, this development.

If you have any items you wish to discuss at the meeting, please contact me (rddpdx@gmail.com) or Sheree (ssroth@pacbell.net).

On Sunday from 2:00 to 4:30 pm, our Kremenets Group will share a table with the Volhynia SIG at the "Market Square Fair". Try to stop by to say hello.

We hope to see you at the meeting and the Market Square Fair.

Ron and Sheree
