Join with the-cousins-you-haven’t-met-yet at the International Conference on Jewish Genealogy! The conference will be live in August, but all the sessions will be recorded and available until Oct 25, 2022.

This is an international event!

There are three registration levels:

  • $99 for 20 Conference Sessions
  • $175 for 50 Conference Sessions
  • $300 for all Conference Sessions (over 200 sessions)

From the International to the Local!

We will get together in person at the Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta’s Lisa F. Brill Institute for Jewish Learning to discuss the Conference program. Beginning Wednesday August 17 (a free, how-to-sign-up session) and continuing for 8 weeks, we will meet on Wednesday afternoons at 1:00 to discuss particular video sessions. Participants in the discussion will be expected to watch a video at home each week so that when we meet we can practice the family research skills described in the videos.

You must sign up for the IAJGS Conference to attend our local discussions.

The Brill Institute program will focus on Beginning Genealogy. The fee is $80 (MJCCA members) and $90 (community) payable to the MJCCA. The Registration website is here.
