Mid-Week Field Notes–August 4, 2021

Some quick things:

  1. My #52snapshot-turned-essay, “An American Constellation,” was published August 1 by the Jewish Literary Journal. It’s about my paternal immigrant grandmother and her three sons in the Armed Forces during World War II.
  2. I’ll be leading a workshop at the October Amherst Writers & Artists Leaders Conference on writing family history.
  3. This week I’ve been attending the virtual conference of the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies, which I hadn’t attended since 2005. I still remember my first conference in 1991. It’s good to be back! Learning so much. I am now a co-leader for two of my mother’s ancestral towns: Brok and Zaręby Kośćielne.
  4. Two more #52snapshot-turned-essays in the hopper. I have a list of five others to take through revision before I turn once again to creating all new material.
