Every acronym has numerous meanings. The IGRA in capitals
is an abbreviation and can be used just as all others that use abbreviations.

IGRA referrers should add "Israel" to specify that their location is in

I would add that all groups add their locations in the subject,
and be sure to spell out their locations so IL, the international
abbreviation for Israel is not confused with IL the US state.

how do you know the fellow that
wrote the readin,

When citing this acronym, be sure to spell out Israel Genealogy Research Association. IGRA is a word in Russian that means 'game' or 'play', but it is also an English acronym, with multiple referents that show up on Google:

1. Interferon Gamma Release Assay

2. Indian Gaming Regulatory Act

3. International Gay Rodeo Association
