The international genealogists descended on Washington DC and MyHeritage was there to meet them.

The 31st International Conference on Jewish Genealogy – August 14-19 – was organized by the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Maryland in conjunction with the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies.
