As the conference will open one day shy of the 100th anniversary of the start of World War I (in Europe), the conference will have presentations, displays and other activities commemorating the War's impacts on our ancestors.

Other focus areas will include

Technology in the Pursuit of Genealogy

Jewish Migrations over the Ages

Ethical Genealogical Challenges and

Jews (and crypto-Jews) of the Western United States

Of course, there will be a wide range of presentations and workshops covering various geographic areas, research techniques and areas of common interest to those researching their Jewish roots as well as those interested in Eastern Europe and World War I.
