Jewish Genealogy conference in Chicago

The 28th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy will meet at the Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile 17-22 Aug 2008, welcoming all levels of genealogical interest. According to a December 1 press release, sixteen special interest groups (covering Germany, Poland, Ukraine, and Litvak [Lithuanian]) and at least sixteen smaller "birds of a feather" groups will get together as well. The sponsoring umbrella group's website is here.

For those for whom Chicago is a genealogical destination as well, Mike Karsen, president of the co-host Jewish Genealogical Society of Illinois, has a Guide to Jewish Genealogy in Chicagoland.
