How Jews Can Learn About Their Roots From Hundreds of Genealogists

Members of Jewish community are being invited to delve into their ancestral history when genealogists from around the world descend on the UK later this month. 

Dozens of family ancestry experts will be on hand to help members of the community learn to trace their roots at an international conference on Jewish genealogy, which promises to “enhance and spread knowledge and learning” around the topic through  workshops, talks and storytelling.

This is the first time the International Conference on Jewish Genealogy, now in its 43rd year, is being staged in London.

The event will run for four days between July 30 and August 3 and will feature more than 100 speakers, and over 200 sessions geared toward everyone from first timers to conference veterans.

The conference is hosted by the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies  (IAJGS), an umbrella organisation of nearly 90 Jewish genealogical organisations worldwide, with the Jewish Genealogical Society of Great Britain (JGSGB) acting as the co-host.
