International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS) Conference 2014

The IAJGS conference will be held in Salt Lake City next year from July 27-Aug 1.

The press release says that “This conference brings together people from all over the world who are interested in Jewish genealogy. Last year’s conference in Boston had over 800 people representing 20 different countries, including researchers, archivists, writers and bloggers.

In addition to presentations on Jewish genealogy, this year’s conference will have strong representation on events leading to the beginning of World War I, which approaches the 100th anniversary of its beginning.

An important notice to all registrants – you will be encouraged to share family stories and pictures from the World War One era. These stories and pictures will be compiled into an online volume which will provide a unique resource for genealogists and historians. Please gather your stories and pictures to be ready to upload them once Registration opens in late December”.
