SIG & BOF Programming

The 40th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy will offer many opportunities for Special Interest Groups (SIGs) and Birds of a Feather (BOFs) to share their information, recruit new members, add value to the Jewish Genealogical community, and make this Conference great.

A huge SIG/BOF Fair, which is called “SHARE Fair”, will kick off the Conference on Sunday, August 9. This will be a wonderful chance for new and returning conference attendees to meet with genealogical researchers sharing similar interests. Space will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.
