Southern California GS (SCGS) Jamboree

Jamboree Artwork“Join the participants of the Southern California Genealogical Society's (SCGS) Streamed Video Sessions.  A total of 10 sessions will be streamed during the coming weekend, June 9 and 10.” is the message I received this morning in my email box.

Did you miss RootsTech streamed videos? Want to attend a really BIG genealogy conference but haven’t the time, money, or confidence to go? Here is your chance to listen to ten of the countries foremost genealogists teach you how to improve your research techniques.

The speakers who have agreed to live-streaming their presentations are Warren Bittner, Lisa Louise Cooke, Josh Taylor, Curt Witcher and Laura Prescott to name just a few.

I, for one, would do anything to listen to Curt Witcher or Josh Taylor speak about genealogy. I always come away with at least one new idea and am always inspired by their presentations. All these speakers will have something important and useful to share or they otherwise would not have been invited to speak at the SCGS Jamboree, one of the biggest genealogical conferences in the nation.

To access the schedule and plan your weekend, go to the SCGS Jamboree blog site at

I’ll be in front of my monitor watching, will you?
