Registration Types

The descriptions below have been updated (August 3, 2021) to clarify what conference features will be available to each registrant type.

There are several different Registration categories available. All registered attendees, no matter their payment level, will have access to the Expo Hall, Attendee Lounge, and Unified Communications (for chatting) for the entire Conference, which ends 60 days after the live sessions. Each registrant type will have access in the on-demand library to the recordings of programs that they were eligible to view live.

  • Full Conference registration allows access to all sessions, meetings, and presentations—both live programs and on-demand recordings—for one fee. Early Bird Registration is available for a Full Conference Attendee until June 10, 2021 (extended to June 17).
  • Limited Access permits attendance at SIG, BOF, Research Division, and Research Group meetings only. Based on the fee selected, there is a choice of one or more of those meetings. Those meetings are being recorded.
  • Free Access allows attendance at only the following six specific programs: the Conference opening session, the IAJGS 2021 Annual Meeting, the JewishGen 2021 Annual Meeting, and the three IAJGS-sponsored JGS Management Seminars. Those meetings are being recorded.

Payment Methods

Credit Card

We expect most fees to be paid by credit card using the registration system.

Some people worry about using a credit card online. From what we have read, this worry is generally not well founded; online credit-card processing is generally safer than in-person processing. Internet systems generally protect credit-card information much more carefully than in hand-to-hand transactions. While there have been online security breaches, most credit-card fraud arises in other ways. In addition, most credit cards include complete coverage against fraudulent charges.


If, for some reason, you cannot use or do not want to use a credit card, payments may be made by check. However, please observe the note in the following box.


  • If you plan to pay by check, please do not submit the registration form until you are ready to mail the check to the Conference treasurer.
  • If we do not receive the check within one week, we may cancel the registration or the optional items ordered.
  • To take advantage of special pricing, the check must be received by the treasurer prior to the cut-off date.

Checks should be made payable to “IAJGS 2021 Virtual” and sent to:

Douglas Cohen
Treasurer, IAJGS 2021 Virtual
18 Lois Lane
Lexington, MA 02420

Spouse/Domestic Partner Definition

The reduced “Spouse/Domestic Partner” registration fee applies only for spouses and domestic partners who reside in the same household. It does not apply for roommates, siblings, parents, children, or other relatives of the primary registrant, even if they live in the same household. The Conference reserves the right to verify the status of anyone registering in this category.

Due to the conversion to a virtual conference with extended online access, there are no cancellations or refunds available for the 2021 All Virtual Conference.
