With consideration of concerns about travel and group meetings and the safety of our attendees, the IAJGS Board of Directors has decided that the 2022 IAJGS Conference will be an All Virtual Conference.
Challenging the Conference Committee to create an exciting and memorable event, both pre-recorded and live streamed sessions will cover the gamut of the 2022 themes including Philadelphia and Western Pennsylvania research. DNA experts will explain the basics, as well as mitochondrial and endogamy analysis in multiple presentations. You can learn how families lived across the world from small towns of America to Germany and the Caribbean. Those who want to document your family history will be able to listen to sessions on writing your family stories and documenting them through multi-media and networking.
There will be a robust Expo Hall with our Conference Sponsors and Exhibitors and an updated Digital Resource Library. The Mobile App will be available for all attendees and our traditional Family Finder function will be found in the Attendee Service Center. Using a newly updated appointment system, mentors and translators will once again be available to help attendees.
Early Bird Registration will open in the next few weeks. Attendee Levels and fees will be published at that time.
The Conference Committee is looking forward to once again offering an informative and satisfying All Virtual Conference.
