Of the many advantages associated with attending a major conference such as the IAJGS Jewish Genealogy Conference, is the ability to interact on a first hand basis with the people who have helped make JewishGen into what it is today.
Specifically, I have also been able to hear people’s reactions to the new JewishGen logo, and I am happy to report that the reviews have been mostly positive, exciting and upbeat.
If you analyze the logo, you will notice a “Magen David” surrounding the middle of the logo. The logo also contains six leaves which reference the leaves of a genealogy tree branch. The point of each of the six leaves represents the 6 million Jews who were murdered during the holocaust. The star in the middle extends outwards representing Jewish renewal throughout the world. Finally, the color scheme of blue and green was chosen to convey the global nature of JewishGen’s active network of volunteers who make JewishGen possible to begin with.
