2011 IAJGS Conference: Update


Our program has grown to more than 230 events that offer to enrich, educate, enlighten, amuse and please the palate of Jewish family researchers coming from many countries to this singular international conference. Time is growing short to register on line for these six days of —
  • hearing informative lectures and panel discussions
  • learning and refining research techniques
  • doing on-line research with free access in the Resource Center to many databases that normally require paid subscriptions
  • watching fine professional films with themes of Jewish heritage
  • enjoying a kosher lunch or breakfast with a Special Interest Group
  • getting together with genealogical Birds of a Feather
  • visiting embassies of nations with historical and ongoing important for Jews
  • mixing and networking with old and new friends who have common interests in Jewish genealogy
  • taking in a special performance of Theater J's "The Moscows of Nantucket"
  • hearing about resources available at the National Archives and U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum
  • attending workshops to enhance your on-line research successes
Registration closes for the pre-conference dinners, Breakfasts with the Experts, SIG meals and the Gala at midnight EST July 31, less than three weeks away. You can't add meals to your agenda on site. Embassy visits and computer workshops will be open for new sign-ups only until they reach capacity. If you procrastinate, you might miss out.
