36th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy

Even though It was only 3 short months ago that we all gathered together in Jerusalem for the 2015 IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy, the time has come to begin preparing for the next conference. The 2016 conference, which will be held in August in Seattle, Washington now has its own website up and running, www.iajgs2016.org.
The theme for the Seattle conference is The Wandering Jew. In support of that topic, the organizers have identified 5 different tracts of classes. They are:
  1. The Sephardic Experience in the United States.
  2. European Migrations .
  3. South American, Australian and South African Branches.
  4. Westward Ho! Jews in the Western US.
  5. Coming Home to Israel.

The call for papers for this year's conference has now gone out. More information about that can be found on the website.

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Washington State (JGSWS) is the local host chapter this year. They are some of the greatest people you will ever meet and all great Jewish genealogists. It should be another wonderful conference.
