Registration Types

The 2022 All Virtual IAJGS Conference will offer a combination of

  • live-streaming presentations,
  • pre-recorded presentations, and
  • group meetings

resulting in roughly 200 opportunities for being part of the Conference. These events comprise approximately 100 pre-recorded sessions, 60 live-streaming presentations, and 40 group meetings.

Attendees have the option of selecting from three participation and pricing levels.

  • Explorer Level offers any combination of up to 20 live-streaming presentations, pre-recorded sessions, and meetings from August 21-25, 2022, as well as access to the Expo Hall and Resource Library, for $99. Explorer Level Registrants will be able to watch their 20 chosen selections again in the Virtual Library until October 25, 2022. Access to the Expo Hall and the Resource Library is also extended until October 25, 2022.

  • Enthusiast Level offers any combination of up to 50 live-streaming presentations, pre-recorded sessions, and meetings from August 21-25, 2022, as well as access to the Expo Hall and Resource Library, for $175. Enthusiast Level Registrants will be able to watch their 50 selections again in the Virtual Library until October 25, 2022.

  • Early Bird Registration is expected to open soon and will end on May 31, 2022. The Early Bird prices are listed in the table under Registration Fees.

    For the first time ever, Early Bird Registration offers an additional benefit beyond the reduced price. Several unique bonus pre-Conference recorded sessions from our sponsors—MyHeritage, Ancestry and Family Tree DNA—will be available starting in May 2022 to Early Bird registrants only. These interesting presentations will hopefully fire up your research excitement as we wait for the Conference to begin.

  • Explorer Level to Enthusiast Level: an additional $100 (total $199 versus base of $175)
  • Enthusiast Level to Experienced Level: an additional $150 (total $325 vs base of $300)

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.

Check

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.

PAYMENT BY CHECK

  • 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.
  • 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 2022 Virtual” and sent to:

Douglas Cohen
Treasurer, IAJGS 2022 Virtual
1800 Ben Franklin Dr Apt A1002
Sarasota, FL 34236-2366

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.
