Jewish Genealogy's main event begins July 15

If you're still sitting on the fence about attending the 27th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy, July 15-20, in Salt Lake City, here are some things you won't want to miss.

According to event chairs Hal Bookbinder and Michael Brenner, time is running out for the special conference room rate of only $119 per night at the four-star Hilton, only a few blocks from the Family History Library. The rate, good for 1-4 people will expire Friday, June 29.

Along with sessions geared to every level and every interest, and unparalleled research opportunities at the Family History Library, conference registrants will be able enjoy a series of films in a dedicated theater on the conference floor, free access to subscription databases and detailed European maps, three evening receptions, a world-class photographic exhibit, a wide array of special interest group (SIG) programming and events, and many cultural and natural attractions that the Salt Lake City area has to offer.

The sessions will include the latest on the opening of the Arolsen archives, upcoming improvements at CIS (formerly INS) to allow faster access to genealogical records, the latest from JewishGen, the incomparable Stephen Morse on his ever growing collection of on-line tools, a full day of focused sessions on DNA and genetics, and more.

I'm looking forward to greeting Tracing the Tribe's readers, so please say hello at the conference!
