Come join hundreds who, like you, want to learn more about Jewish genealogy, enjoy the many attractions Chicago has to offer, make new friends, see old friends, and maybe even meet a relative you didnít know about before.

The International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS) is proud to co-sponsor the 2008 conference with the JGS of Illinois and the Illiana JGS.

For those of you who are first-timers at a conference, we encourage you to read Getting the Most Out of the Conference for it will help you prepare. Please know that it doesnít matter if you are new to Jewish genealogy, an experienced genealogist, or somewhere in between. All are welcome and all will find it a most valuable experience!

We look forward to seeing you in Chicago!
