Philly 2009: Hotel, conference registration now open

Get ready for the 29th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy, August 2-7, in Philadelphia!

Conference and hotel registration has just gone live for the major event of the Jewish genealogy year.

Continuing a conference tradition, a drawing for a hotel room for four nights will be held from among early registrants (by March 18) for both the conference and the hotel, so consider registering quickly - you might be the lucky winner.

Also, if you register by April 30, enjoy a substantial early bird conference discount over later registration. Click here for more information.

This year, attendees will receive a CD syllabus version with their registration. This is an excellent idea, as these rather hefty printed volumes were expensive to ship home and took up valuable space in suitcases.

Print copies ($35) are also available, but must be ordered online in advance by July 1. Extra print syllabuses will not be available at the conference. Extra CD copies are $10 each. Think about ordering an extra CD or a print copy for your local Jewish genealogical society reference library.

Stay tuned to Tracing the Tribe for all event information as it is announced!
