Take advantage of the magic of Jerusalem and Israel by attending
the wonderful Pre-Conference Shabbaton and "Exploration Sunday"
prior to the Conference opening.
Rabbi Israel Meir Lau, Opening Session Keynote speaker, 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. Dick Eastman, genealogy's renowned
blogger, will address our closing banquet.
SIG luncheons and other SIG meetings will be held each day, as
will "Breakfast with Experts." Workshops will offer valuable
opportunities and information on a range of topics that are sure
to be of interest.
Don't miss the new and distinctive Conference component "Rendezvous
with an Expert." We are offering 30-minute one-on-one sessions for
those researchers that face a "brick wall" in their family research.
To overcome the specific obstacle, we will match an expert in a
relevant genealogical field to share his know-how with the
researcher in need. The opportunity of a lifetime!
To arrange for consultation with an expert, Conference participants
should contact Dr. Eli Brauner at firstname.lastname@example.org
Plus--our Resource Room will feature three important databases never
before available at an IAJGS Conference. Yad Vashem, Beit Hatefuzot
(Museum of the Jewish People) and the Jewish National Fund (Keren
Kayemeth LeIsrael - KKL) will offer resources that do not appear on
their websites. (Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael - KKL) will offer its
database of Books of Honor and Golden Books. For more information on
the KKL database of honor, see
