Jewish genealogists from around the world will meet in New York City this summer to learn more about their roots. The 26th annual IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy is expected to draw close to 2,000 attendees, ranging from beginners to long-time family historians. They will participate in tours, lectures, and hands-on computer classes, visit Jewish cemeteries, network with “landsmen,â€? and search for family information in the city’s archives and libraries. Speakers from at least 18 different countries will lecture on a variety of topics, including Jewish names, locating ancestral towns, immigration, Internet resources, Holocaust research, and Jewish culture and history. In addition, special interest groups will meet to discuss ways to research ancestry in Galicia, Germany, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, the Sephardic world, and other locations.

The Conference, hosted by the Jewish Genealogical Society of New York, will take place from Aug. 13 to 18 at the New York Marriott Marquis Hotel in Manhattan. More information and online registration are available at ; a tentative schedule of lectures will appear on that website in early spring.
