Chicago 2008: Registration now live

If you've been wondering when you could finally register for the 28th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy - the answer is NOW. Get ready to network with international experts, archivists and researchers of all skill levels.

The dates are Sunday-Friday, August 17-22. Conference and hotel registration can be accessed at the event site here. Prices are posted for various component costs, such as early bird registration, special luncheons/breakfasts and more.

Be prepared to arrive early - as activities, according to the organizers, will begin on the morning of the first day (Sunday, August 17) at the conference venue, the Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile.

Early arrivals will find a Friday Shabbat dinner (August 15) and a Saturday welcome dinner (August 16); price and details at the website.

Visiting the vendor room has always been difficult with so many programs to attend from early morning to late afternoon. This year, the room will be open one evening.

Tracing the Tribe will provide more details as they are announced.

I'll be blogging again from the conference, and looking forward to meeting many readers at the main annual event for global Jewish genealogists.
