JGSO: IAUGS Conference in Seattle

The local Jewish  Genealogy Society in Portland recently sent me the following announcement about this year's gathering.  Thanks Ron for sending this and Barbara for all the wonderful work you and everyone does to make this conference so great!   They have some great programs if you are in the area.

The annual conference of the International Association of Jewish Genealogy Societies (IAJGS) is in Seattle this year. This is a GREAT conference, packed with program sessions for every genealogy research skill level. The entire program listing, schedule and special events are online at:
That website also includes registration information.

Just in case you can't attend in person, you can sign up for the Conference's LIVE offering. It currently is being discounted 10%. Here is the message about it from Janette Silverman, Conference Co-Chair.
Dear Friends:
We are delighted to offer a 10% discount so that those of your members
who are unable to attend this summer's conference can attend virtually.

The code LIVEJGS will apply a 10% discount only to the $179 fee for
"LIVE! Full (Not attending the Conference in Seattle)," and the purchase
is non-refundable.

This code is being offered only to leaders of local JGS (and affiliated
organizations), who are asked to only relay it to their members. We ask
that when you distribute the code, to please ask your members not to
share it with nonmembers - this is a perk of membership.
To order, go to
    click New Registration;
    complete the personal information page and Continue;
    select item 5, " Full LIVE! only (not attending in Seattle)," and
    continue through to the payment page.

You may want to mention the page http://www.iajgs2016.org/live/
and the schedule, at
where your members can see which sessions will be streamed live and
later available on demand for 90 days following the conference.

Looking forward to seeing many of you in just a few short weeks in Seattle.

Your conference co-chairs,
Janette Silverman
Chuck Weinstein
Phyllis Grossman

If you plan to attend in person, please let us know. Send an e-mail message to Barbara
