The 35th IAJGS International Conference is just around the corner! 

FOR A SIGNIFICANT DISCOUNT (AND A CHANCE TO WIN GREAT PRIZES IN OUR DRAWING), REGISTER NOW. “Early Bird Special” ends on May 6th! Visit www.iajgs2015.org to register.
TREAT YOURSELF TO THE WONDERFUL PRE-CONFERENCE SHABBATON on the Friday-Saturday, July 3-4 weekend preceding the Conference. Enjoy an adventure in exploring the sights and sounds of Jerusalem via three unique tour opportunities.

“EXPLORATION SUNDAY” on July 5 offers you the superior options of either visiting extraordinary research archives or taking fascinating tours of Jerusalem and Israel.

Monday’s full day of programming sets the pace for a peerless schedule of sessions, including one that offers how-to’s for those attending their first IAJGS Conference.

SIG luncheons and other SIG meetings will be held each day, bolstered by valuable sessions on Jewish communities throughout the world that dot the daily schedules. BOF meetings will be announced soon, with over 25 BOF groups planning time together this year!

Guide to the Perplexed: Nearly every day features a valuable “Breakfast with Experts” for the rare opportunity to sit round the table with a genealogical wizard and personally ask questions. The answers you’ll hear can spark new directions for your research. Experts will also be volunteering for one-on-one “break down brick wall” meetings for those in need.

Our honored Keynote speaker Rabbi Israel Meir Lau will share his moving plea to continue to tell the story of the Shoah, striving to document our family’s past as an inspiration for the next generations to come.

The Convention’s impressive roster of skilled, informative and fascinating lecturers from across the globe will present a treasure of new ideas, new sources to research, and new tools for advanced and novice genealogists alike. View the full program at www.iajgs2015.org

Our closing banquet will be enhanced by the presence of Dick Eastman, genealogy’s renowned blogger.
