  • More than 150 lectures, panel discussions, and workshops focusing on genealogy methodology, available archival resources, and the history of all Jewish communities with special emphasis on the Jews of Central and Eastern Europe
  • Presentations aimed at all Jewish genealogists—from “first-timers” to conference veterans
  • An innovative “Resource Village” combining a traditional Vendor Exhibit Hall and Resource Room with genealogy experts, mentors, archivists, local NGO's, and craftspeople for a one-stop research experience at the conference site
  • Opportunities for one-on-one conversations with archivists from Europe including Poland and Lithuania
  • Networking via popular Special Interest Group (SIG) and Birds of a Feather (BOF) meetings and luncheons
  • Special “Welcome to Warsaw” activities on Sunday, August 5, 2018, including walking tours of the city and introductory lectures
