conference before and who may or may not consider themselves new to
2) A "DNA" track to help all of us become better acquainted with the
immense insight that DNA is adding to the field of genealogy.
3) A "Heritage" track to help provide cultural context that both
inspires and enhances our genealogical explorations.
4) A "Shoah" track specifically to honor the memory of those who were
lost in the calamity of World War II.
5) A "Military" track -- With the US Naval Base San Diego just a few
blocks >from our convention, we hope to offer sessions which will
recognize military angles to Jewish genealogy, both >from the USA and
the rest of the world.
6) A "Latin America" track – Recognizing San Diego's proximity to
Central and South America and the need to find and understand our
relatives who live or lived south of the border.
All other subjects related to Jewish Genealogy and Genealogy in general,
will, of course, be considered.
