The IAJGS Conference Is Only One Month Away


Posted By Anne Feder Lee

We are very pleased to share the following good news with everyone.
1. All conference registrants staying at the Sheraton hotel will receive complimentary internet access in their guest room.  If you have not yet made your hotel reservation, do so without delay to take advantage of this great deal. Use the link at the conference website (the Hotel  Registration button) to do so.
2. Not only will the banquet include the announcement of the IAJGS Achievement Awards, the wonderful entertainment by Yisrael Campbell, but there will also be drawings for 3 prizes. Those prizes are 4 hours of
research by the following individuals (and the country of research): Jordan Auslander (U.S.); Michael Goldstein (Israel); and Anthony Joseph (U.K).  If you have not yet purchased your banquet(s), be sure to do so before the deadline of July 19, 2009 (midnight U.S. central time).  Don't miss out on the fun way to end the hectic conference week.
We thank Jordan, Michael, and Anthony for generously contributing their professional time and expertise for these drawings.
We also encourage you to look at the list of breakfasts with experts, SIG lunches, workshops and tours. Any one, or more of them, will enhance your conference experience because they are certainly worth attending.  Make sure you purchase your ticket(s) for these events to guarantee that you get a space.
One of the workshops is already full and we have added a repeat performance (A second beginner/intermediate Family Tree Maker session will be held on Thursday, August 6 from 8:15 to 10:15 AM.)
The breakfast (Monday, August 3, 7 AM - 8 AM) with Miriam Weiner and Olga Muzychuk, experts, is almost filled to capacity.  Don't wait a moment if you want to attend that breakfast.
See you in a month,
Anne Feder Lee and David Mink
Philly2009 Co-Chairs
