SIGs and BOFs

Special Interest Group (SIG) and Birds-of-A-Feather (BOF) meetings and events are the lifeblood of our annual IAJGS conference. They allow individuals with common genealogical interests to meet face-to-face to discuss strategies for furthering their research goals.

Thus far 45 SIGs and BOFs have reserved program tracks, breakfasts, luncheons, SHARE Fair tables and/or meetings during the IAJGS 2017 conference in Orlando.

To be made aware of SIG and BOF programs during the conference , check off your interest in these SIGs “Additional Information” page of the conference Registration Form,  and sign up to follow our Blog, Discussion Group, and Twitter Feed / Facebook feeds (see sign-up links at the bottom of this Web page).

A full calendar of SIG and BOF events will be published on our Web site during the third week of March.
