Chicago conference updates #southafrica

ANNE LEE <information@...>

We are very pleased to let you all know that the Chicago 2008 program is now
available on the conference website. Go to and click on
the "Program" button on the left side of the home page. We believe that
this is a strong program with quite a number of new speakers and topics plus
many of those you have enjoyed and learned >from at past conferences. Just a
few of the areas to be covered include Midwestern Jewish genealogy research,
genetics and DNA, the newly available ITS records, Latin American research,
very remarkable SIG programming (including experts >from European archives)
and much more. We do expect some additional programs to be included in the
coming weeks -- so stay tuned. Please note that dates and times of some
sessions may change.

On March 28, during the IAJGS board meeting in Philadelphia (March 28-29), a
drawing was held to determine the winner of the free hotel room during the
conference. We thank all who registered for both the conference and hotel
room by March 15 in order to qualify; we thank the Chicago Marriott Downtown
Magnificent Mile for contributing this great prize. And, the winner is....
Barbara Freedman of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. This will be
Barbara's sixth IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy. We know
that you all join us in congratulating Barbara.

And, finally, just a reminder: early-bird registration ends on April 30.
Don't forget to register before then in order to enjoy the savings.

See you all in Chicago.
On behalf of the IAJGS and our co-hosts, JGS of Illinois and Illiana JGS,
