    IAJGS opened its Records Access Alerts to anyone who is interested. This
    was announced previously. We now have subscribers from many genealogical organizations not previously able to subscribe. To be on top of what is happening I encourage you to register for the Records Access Alerts to
    receive the information in a timely manner. If you are interested in any of the above items, please register for the IAJGS Records Access Alert and look
    at them in the archives. To register for the IAJGS Records Access Alert go
    to: http://lists.iajgs.org/mailman/listinfo/records-access-alerts and
    follow the instructions to enter your email address, full name and which genealogical organization you belong to-a society, SIG or a subscriber of JewishGen, Avotaynu, Legal Genealogist etc. You will receive an email
    response that you have to reply to, or the subscription will not be
    finalized. The alerts are archived and once you register you may access the archives at: http://lists.iajgs.org/mailman/private/records-access-alerts/

    The IAJGS Records Access Alert is not a daily announcement list. Depending
    on what happens worldwide, there may be no postings for several days and
    other times there may be several in one day.

    These are listed alphabetically not chronologically. Each month the locales covered differ.
