“It’s wonderful to be able to “feel a part of the Conference” without being there ...” Norma

“The ON-DEMAND! playback is a great idea! An improvement over the old CDs that were sold.” Zyppora

“I was disappointed that I couldn't attend this year's conference and thought the ON-DEMAND! sessions were the next best thing. I'm glad I'll be able to view sessions after the conference. There are so many sessions I want to access but my time is limited, especially during the day. I hope you have many interested members who are using this service - it's a brilliant idea - and that it will become a feature for all IAJGS conferences from now on.” Evelyn

"I am soooo excited. I have been going to the conferences since the very first one. Unfortunately, the last few years I haven't been able to attend due to taking care of my… mother. I look forward to participating in the ON DEMAND. I already reactivated my Twitter a/c." Mona

“These recordings are a wonderful idea. With blessings.” Linda

“It was a wonderful feature of the conference to view the sessions and I thank you and your associates for setting it up.” Roz

“I was delighted to be able to view each day of sessions that were streamed ON DEMAND online at the conference… I will re-visit the videos and the handouts just in case I missed something. Thank you for supplying them and making it possible to see them after the conference. Most speakers were outstanding! I have been doing our family genealogy for several years and organized a Mishpocha Reunion… which 96 cousins attended. On my mother's paternal side of the family, with the help of a few other relatives, we traced back into the 18th century. Many thanks!!” Carolmae
