Connection Sessions

IGGP is excited to again offer a large number of connection sessions at this year's conference. Attendees will have both in-person and virtual options to choose from, and one of the most popular features of previous conferences was the opportunity to attend 'Connection Sessions' to bring together attendees interested in discussing specific topics in an open and free form environment. 
These connection sessions are your opportunity to exchange information and tips with fellow genealogists who are interested in the same topics or regions as you are. Perhaps you will meet someone who is researching the same village or nearby.

We plan to offer about 25 different connection sessions. They will be offered 3 times on Friday, 3 on Saturday, and 2 on Sunday. (June 9-11). They will be scheduled early morning (7:30am CST), at noon, (12pm CST) and in the early afternoon/evening, (TBD).
Multiple connection sessions will be offered at the same time. The connection sessions will be available for both in-person and virtual conference attendees. These will be live events only. They will not be recorded.
