Join us for the upcoming free webinar series of the Israel Genealogy Research Association (IGRA) starting April 22nd. We have chosen a variety of genealogy topics for the webinars that should appeal to all levels and will help genealogists in advancing your research.
Registration is now open and is required as there are a limited number of “seats” available. If you wish to register for more than one webinar, you must do so separately. Reminders will be sent out closer to the date of each webinar.
All webinars are in English, with the exception of two webinars. They will all start at 19:00 Israel Time, 12 pm (EDT).
This series is in addition to the weekly Zoom “Show and Tell” series from IGRA which have already started to be broadcast.
