Past Conferences

Annual conferences on Jewish Genealogy have been held since 1981 (two conferences were held in 1984). Over the years, the conferences have become larger and ever more professional. All have served the purpose of bringing together those interested in Jewish Genealogy: to learn, to research, and most importantly, to share. The names of the conferences have varied and the numbering did not become standardized until 1998.
