Getting Started

Whether you are a “first-timer” or a veteran of the IAJGS Conferences you will want to check here for important Conference tips and information.

Registration for the 35th IAJGS Conference on Jewish Genealogy is still open for EVERYONE. Reservations at the hotel can now only be arranged through Ortra after your conference registration is complete.

Look for our unique Conference components. Consider the additional opportunities of the Shabbaton, Exploration Sunday, Breakfast with the Experts, SIG luncheons and the Banquet. Registration is available for all these components on the Registration pages. The Exploration Sunday options are posted with descriptions of each in the PROGRAM tab. You will also find there the option to search the Family Finder. Workshop registration and reservations for your choice of "A Taste of Jerusalem" on Tuesday evening can be done through the PROGRAM tab.

The Keynote speaker on Monday evening is Rabbi Israel Meir Lau. Please plan to be with us. After an exciting week of conference experiences Dick Eastman will be with us at the Banquet as well as the Jerusalem Barbershop Ensemble.
