31st IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy was accepted! I am so excited!
The conference will be in Washington D.C. from August 14-19. I already have my airline ticket booked, and I know where I'm staying. So I have five months to fine-tune my presentation (and get nervous about it!).
Along with teaching my class, I know that I will attend many other talks at the conference and learn a lot. My first IAJGS conference was in 2010 in Los Angeles, and I was amazed at how many classes I could fit into my schedule and how much information I could try to cram into my brain in just one week. I'm looking forward to learning even more this year.
Genealogy is like a jigsaw puzzle, but you don't have the box top, so you don't know what the picture is supposed to look like. As you start putting the puzzle together, you realize some pieces are missing, and eventually you figure out that some of the pieces you started with don't actually belong to this puzzle. I'll help you discover the right pieces for your puzzle and assemble them into a picture of your family.

Mazel tov! I presented at and attended my first IAJGS conference last year in Los Angeles (in fact that is where we first met!) and I had a great time.ReplyDelete
I didn't realize that was your first IAJGS! Will you be at IAJGS this year?ReplyDelete
Thank you, Susan!ReplyDelete
It is refreshing to know how excited you are about the conference and your presentation. We are working very hard to live up to your expectation. There will be about 160 lectures over the six days, as well as films, luncheons, breakfasts, and NEW Embassy Experiences!
