Though both of our room blocks at the Charles Hotel are booked, finding accommodations nearby should be no problem. To help you out, we've updated the ahs2012 website's hotel information page with the following:
Here are a few other options to consider:

1. If you want to stay at the Charles, you may be able to find someone who already has a reservation and is looking for a roommate. Roommate matching is taking place on CrowdVine

2. This google map shows the Charles Hotel and the symposium venue (Wasserstein Casperson Clinical aka WCC). As you look for options, consider adding the addresses of potential hotels to this map by clicking "add destination". This will allow you to see where a given hotel is in relation to the main symposium sites.

3. had several good options (including the Marriott Courtyard for $169) at the time of this writing. Enter the city as Cambridge, MA then be sure to then narrow selections by neighborhood (Cambridge) otherwise many out of area options will be shown.

4. A number of people are staying at the Irving House. This bed and breakfast appears to be booked but a note on their site says to call as they may have something available.
If you have hotel or b&b ideas for those still looking for accomodations, please feel free to post them here or on the AHS facebook page.

See you soon!

AHS 2012 is Sold Out - Including Student Tickets

Regular registration has been full since the beginning of April. As of April 30, student registration filled as well.

How can I get a ticket? How can I be notified of newly available tickets?

When registration fills, there is an understandable deluge of questions. For your convenience, we've excerpted those most frequently asked:

Can you add me to the waitlist? 
We will not be maintaining a waitlist. It turned out to be prohibitively time consuming.
[edit 5/25/2012: we are now maintaining a waitlist]

Can you notify me if more tickets become available? 

Tickets that become available due to cancellations will be posted to the Ancestry facebook and twitter pages as well as our blog.
[edit: see above note regarding the waitlist]   

I don't do twitter or facebook. Please text me or email me if a ticket becomes available.
As a completely volunteer run organization, individual calls, emails or texts are not possible. Notifications for blog posts are sent via email, so that may be your best option.

Can I register for one day of the conference instead of all 3 days?
Only the full 3-day conference registration is (was) available. In future years we may consider offering one day registration depending on the size of the venue.

Conference Registrations Likely Available

It does appear that we will have a few conference registrations available due to cancellations. I'll let you know, via facebook, twitter and this blog, when those spaces open up.

Looking forward to see you at AHS 2012!

AHS 2012 Registration Chair
In just one short month, regular registration for AHS 2012 has filled! A handful of student registrations remain.  If you are a current, full-time student interested in registering, please see student registration instructions here.

The FAQs (general, registration, hotel) will probably have the answers to all of your AHS related questions. If you've looked through the site and the FAQs and still have a question, please email me. I'll answer your question and add it to the appropriate FAQ.
