Friends - 

With regards to the previous announcement, please note that my presentation Intro to & Jewish Genealogy is not being offered at no cost via the conference. The presentation will only be available for those who are attending the full conference. I apologize for any confusion this caused.

Dear JewishGen Family,


Each year, our friends at the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies organize a world-class conference, bringing together scholars, researchers, volunteers, and well-known Jewish genealogists. For nearly an entire week, there are countless opportunities for participants to network, attend sessions, share information, connect with relatives, research their lineage, and ultimately, learn more about our collective Jewish family history and heritage. 


Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, the conference could not take place in its usual format. But just because we cannot come together in person, does not mean the conference is cancelled! Quite the opposite. The IAJGS team has organized a remarkable 4-day, virtual experience, that will take place next week Monday August 10 - Thursday August 13. It will feature a variety of live and pre-recorded sessions, along with opportunities to engage online with other conference participants.


As the home of Jewish genealogy and a major sponsor of this conference, is proud to participate, and will be offering live and pre-recorded presentations, along with our Research Division meetings. We hope you will join us. All of the live JewishGen programming is offered at no charge, but participants need to register for the conference by visiting: A complete list of live JewishGen presentations/meetings can be downloaded by visiting: 


For additional information about the conference (including information about recordings), we encourage you to visit the conference FAQ page:

Finally, on behalf of the JewishGen Team, I would like to extend a special note of gratitude to Robinn Magid, Dr. Dan Oren, and everyone who has been involved in the organization of this first-of-its-kind conference. There is no road-map or template for what they have created, and they have worked hard to accommodate as many people and ideas as possible. We greatly appreciate their efforts, and for granting us all an opportunity to benefit from what will surely be a meaningful, informative, and inspirational conference. 

Wishing you all a Shabbat Shalom, and a wonderful weekend.
