JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen IAJGS Conferences #general

Michael Goldstein

This is an appeal directed to every Jewish genealogist who is a member of a JGS, a
SIG, an active or passive participant in JewishGen discussion groups etc. For over
three decades, IAJGS has produced successful annual international conferences.
These successes are a result of dedicated JGS leadership motivating their dedicated
volunteers. The conferences enhance all our research efforts through lectures,
workshops, and networking. All conferences need volunteers and this is an area
where you can be of assistance. We also encourage you to ask your JGS to host or
co-host a conference with IAJGS. The work will be hard, success virtually assured
but the satisfaction of what you achieve will be over the top. It will be a
partnership dedicated to adding yet another successful conference to the long list
of previous successes. We are now actively seeking locations for the years 2016,
2017, and 2018. This past fall, IAJGS Immediate Past President, Anne Feder Lee and
Board Director, Jackye Sullins, completed the mammoth task of updating our
conference guide now titled: Conference Planning & Management Guide for IAJGS
International Conferences on Jewish Genealogy. This will help us produce even
better conferences in the future.

High on the heels of this past summer's very successful conference hosted by the
Los Angeles JGS, excitement is building towards Washington, DC this August where
the JGS of Greater Washington is the host. We hope to see you there!

Thank you.

Michael Goldstein
IAJGS President
