Here’s a reminder from Family Tree Magazine about the very popular annual Southern California Genealogy Jamboree:  

If you live on the West Coast, you may already be familiar with the Southern California Genealogy Jamboree. You may have already registered for this year’s event.

If not, you’re probably thinking, “Why am I getting this mailing for a genealogy conference in Southern California? I don’t have any people in California!”

Don’t let the name fool you. It might sound like a regional event, but Jamboree is a national-class conference. Let’s see if Jamboree could help your research:

  • Do you have ancestors who migrated to America? Do you have ancestors who fought in any of the US wars in the past 236 or so years?
  • Do you use Ancestry, FamilySearch, FindMyPast, Origins, Archives, MyHeritage, Fold3, or any other online information database? What about genealogy software? Could you use help using your favorite program?
  • Do you have questions about using DNA? Need help interpreting the information in wills, deeds, pedigree charts you’ve received from a cousin.

Those are just some of the reasons to attend Jamboree in person, and that’s why you received this email. There is one more reason.

On Saturday, June 9 and Sunday, June 10, Jamboree will offer free live-streamed sessions so family historians around the globe can benefit from the knowledge and expertise of our speakers.
After Jamboree, SCGS members will be able to view many Jamboree sessions through the digital archive on the SCGS website. Speakers will determine which of their sessions are archived, which are recorded for purchase, and which are live streamed.

The original live streamed broadcast will be available to the public at no charge. Although the sessions are free, donations are gratefully accepted through the SCGS website.

The full schedule of streamed sessions will be announced in May. Sign up here to be sure that you receive the final schedule of streamed sessions. Each session will hold only 500 viewers, so don’t miss your chance.
