SIG & BOF Programming
Special Interest Group (SIG) and Birds of a Feather (BOF)
The 39th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy will offer many opportunities for Special Interest Groups (SIGs) and Birds of a Feather (BOFs) to share their information, recruit new members, add value to the Jewish Genealogical community, and make this Conference great.
A huge SIG/BOF Fair, which is called SHARE Fair, will kick off the Conference on Sunday, July 28, from 1:30-5:00. This will be a wonderful chance for new and returning conference attendees to meet with genealogical researchers sharing similar interests. Space will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis.
SIG and BOF leaders who are interested in participating in the Conference and/or the Sunday SHARE Fair must submit their completed SIG and BOF Applications to SIGandBOF@iajgs2019.org.
