Dear Fellow Conference Goers: 

This year the Conference is in our “court” – in the ancestral homes for our many volunteers and supporters. This year, JRI-Poland is a Platinum Sponsor of the 38th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy.

On Monday August 6, JRI-Poland, the Polish State Archives, and the Warsaw Conference Chairs have cooperated to bring you a day of information to help researchers and to share plans for the future.

Here is the full lineup:

I think you will all agree that this is a great lineup of programs. JRI-Poland thanks the Polish State Archives, Gesher Galicia, and the Jewish Genealogical Society of Los Angeles for their great programming.

And a really big thank you to the Warsaw Conference Lead Chair, the Program Committee, and the other volunteers for organizing this day.

See you all soon.
