Just announced – The 2015 IAJGS Conference to be in Israel!!  Coinciding with today, Israel Independence Day, Michael Goldstein, president of the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies has announced that the 35th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy will be held in Jerusalem, Israel, in 2015. The host will be IAJGS. Harvey Krueger, long-time friend of Jewish genealogy, will be honorary chairman of the conference. Since 1984, the IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy has been held in Israel about once every ten years. Israel is one of the better venues for the annual conference because of its incredible resources for Jewish genealogical research. Previous IAJGS conferences were held in Israel in 1984, 1994 and 2004. (Information from Gary Mokotoff, “Nu? What’s New”)
