trips by going to the Program and searching in the "Session Topic" box
for Sightseeing Tours or Cemetery Visits. Or, you can click on the
left hand button on the home page for "Travel and Tours." Please
carefully read our advice for those taking tours and/or going on the
cemetery visits for research.

The deadline for purchasing tickets for trips is Sunday, July 19, 2009
at 11:59 pm US central time. Should you purchase a ticket and then
wish to cancel your reservation, you must do so before Sunday, July
19, 2009 at 11:59 pm US central time for a full refund. Cancellations
after that date will not receive a refund.

Film Festival is now online. You can view each film in the context of
the entire day of programs by going

If you want to view just the films at a glance, go to "Session Topic"
and click on "Film Festival" and then "Search." If you click on the
film's title, the descriptive section with a synopsis and photos will
pop up.

Please note that some of the films are being shown more than once
during the conference week to make it easier to catch them. Many of
the films have speakers
attending -- filmmakers, researchers, or participants in the creative
process -- who will introduce their work and then discuss and/or take
Q & A afterwards.

The Film Festival is open to all conference registrants and attendance
does not require any addition fee payments.

We look forward to seeing everyone in Philly,

Anne Feder Lee and David Mink, Philly2009 Co-Chairs
