For people who like to plan ahead - really ahead - here's something to put on your calendars.
The 31st IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy will be held in Washington, DC during summer 2011. Dates and venue are not yet set, but the event will be in July or August.
The 2011 event will be hosted by the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Washington (JGSGW), which has hosted four very successful previous conferences (1984, 1988, 1995 and 2003). I can attest to the talents of this society in planning and programming based on my attendance at the 2003 event.
The society's members come from Maryland, Virginia and Washington, DC, and include many recognized experts with wide experience in numerous topics. The society puts together a program of the best speakers on subjects of great interest to the international Jewish genealogical community and combines that with access to rich area resources and respositories.

Other future venues are Philadelphia (August 2-7, 2009), Paris (2012) and Jerusalem (2014).
