Attention: We Need a New Editor!

We are presently looking for a new editor starting with the fall 2014 issue of the DPL. 

The editor of Die Pommerschen Leute has notified the Pomeranian Special Interest Group (PSIG) of the Immigrant Genealogical Society that she will be resigning after the publication of the Summer 2014 issue of DPL. Consequently, the PSIG is looking for a volunteer who would be willing to accept the position of editor beginning with the Fall 2014 issue. The editor solicits and ...edits publishable articles and stories that deal with the history of Pomerania and the culture, traditions and way of life of its people. The editor completes the layout and design of approximately 10 pages of content for each of the 4 yearly issues. The "Die Vorfahren" section of DPL has its own editor who oversees its content and submissions. 

All of the editorial duties can be accomplished over the Internet, so the editor can be based anywhere in the USA or abroad. Software used has been MS Publisher. The new editor could begin working immediately with the outgoing editor to get oriented, and would have the next 8 to 10 months to work on the Fall 2014 issue. This is a great opportunity for anyone who would love to direct the editorial content of a quarterly publication concerning the history and culture of the Pomeranian people. 

Please contact Toni Perrone, the president of PSIG at She will discuss the duties and responsibilities required of the editor.
