DC 2011: Early conference registration is open

Early bird discounted registration is now open for the 31st IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy.

Those who register by January 31 are eligible for a drawing for a free five-night stay at the Grand Hyatt Washington during the conference.

The rooms include 42" flat screen televisions - but who has time to watch TV at this event? - and other amenities.

The drawing will be held during the first week of February. Register here for the conference.

As always, the program will offer great talks by top-notch speakers on relevant topics. The committee is making an effort to bring fresh lectures on topics not previously addressed.

There will be programs by the staff of the US Holocaust Memorial Museum, the National Archives and Library of Congress. The event includes evening programs and a vendor showcase.

Workshops will include special tracks and beginner's classes, and there will be two computer classrooms.

The resource room will hold books, maps and 40 computers (PC/Mac) with links to some two dozen normally subscription-only databases, which will be free to attendees.

The early bird registration is $275 (versus $310 or more from February). There are companion fees offering large discounts. Student registration: High school students ($50), college students ($100). Daily registration will be $120 Sunday, $100 Monday-Thursday and $50 Friday.

Go to the main Conference Site for more details.
