Subject: Announcing IAJGS Conference Live!
We are today announcing the first ever IAJGS Conference LIVE!
An initiative started by our IAJGS President, Michael Goldstein, LIVE! will use the latest video streaming technology to live broadcast approximately 50 sessions from the Boston conference to participants over the Internet. Our goal is to bring Jewish genealogy know-how to those who otherwise cannot travel to attend our conference in Boston.
Even if you are attending the conference in Boston, you may be interested in registering for LIVE! Why would you do that? Because the LIVE! sessions will also be available for on-demand playback for up to three months after the conference.
See the announcement below for more information. Please forward this announcement to others who might be interested.
See you in Boston!

First Ever IAJGS Conference LIVE! Video Streaming Globally to Jewish Genealogists
IAJGS Conference LIVE! will provide a valuable service to the global Jewish genealogical community – providing accessibility to thousands of people, young and old, to a source of new-found knowledge and ultimately enabling them to discover their ancestors, cousins, and a thread of common identity.
The first ever IAJGS Conference LIVE! will use the latest video streaming technology to live broadcast from the 33rd IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy. Annually, the International Association of Jewish Genealogy (IAJGS) brings the best minds and knowledge in the field of Jewish genealogy to its conference. This year, the conference, co-hosted by the IAJGS and the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Boston (JGSGB) will be held in Boston August 4 - 9 and more than 1,000 attendees from 17 countries will attend. Via LIVE! video streaming, however, anyone in any location with the desire to learn more about their Jewish family history will be able to tap into this knowledge and attend the event via the Internet.
LIVE! will broadcast approximately 50 sessions over five days from the Boston venue. LIVE! participants will be able to view the sessions in real time via an Internet connection to a computer or tablet or smartphone. Sessions will also be available for playback for three months after the conference. Handouts, where provided by the speaker, will be available via download. LIVE! participants will be able to ask questions of the speakers and panelists via Twitter. LIVE! participants will be able to join either by paying a daily fee or a fee for the entire five days of sessions. IAJGS Conference LIVE! is being produced by the IAJGS, FamilySearch, and thanks to the generosity of Harvey Krueger. To view the schedule of LIVE! sessions, to learn more about IAJGS Conference LIVE!, and to register, go to www.live.iajgs2013.org.
