IAJGS 2015 conference site now open for Registration and Call for Papers #general
Registration is now open at http://www.iajgs2015.org for the IAJGS 35th
International Conference on Jewish genealogy taking place at the Jerusalem
Ramada 6-10 July 2015. The Conference is being held in cooperation with
MyHeritage and with the support of individual, organizational and
corporate sponsors presently including Harvey Krueger of New York and Yad
Vashem. We will be updating our list of sponsors to include longstanding
friends of Jewish genealogy and a host of new friends.
SPECIAL NOTE: The Call for Papers for presentation at the conference is
now open. The application and other information is on www.iajgs2015.org
website under the Speakers tab.
The Ramada Hotel near the entrance to Jerusalem was chosen as our
conference venue as it is the only Jerusalem hotel able to host a
conference of our size, has easy access to city and interurban
transportation and is close to many archives, museums and cultural
attractions. The Ramada has two wings; Royal Hotel (3 stars) and the
Ramada (4 stars). Reservations in the conference block are available
following your registration to the conference. To get the Hotel
Conference rate and special perks such as in-room free Wi-Fi you must
register and make reservations through www.iajgs2015.org .
A Shabbaton (Friday and Saturday July 3 - 4), a shabbat experience for
everyone, will precede the conference. Exploration Sunday, on July 5,
will follow the Shabbaton with touring and archive options. The program
for the 2015 conference promises to be varied and unique! There will be
sessions relating to research in different countries, genealogy research
techniques, and a focus on how the end of World War II impacted the Jewish
people's lives across the world.
The conference website, http://www.iajgs2015.org, currently includes
registration for those outside of Israel, the Call for Papers and basic
conference information. Additional information on shekel based
registration, the Family Finder, Exploration Sunday, the Shabbaton, meal
functions and more will be available shortly. To prepare for and preview
the conference, we encourage you to watch the website, sign up for the
Conference Discussion group:
