SCGS Jamboree 2018

In its 49th season, the Southern California Genealogy Society is having another wonderful conference for genealogy and genetic genealogy held at the Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Airport Hotel, 2500 Hollywood Way, Burbank.  Early Bird Deadline registration is April 14th and Advance Registration ends May 12th , so save your place now!  This is one of the best conferences you will attend, and there are classes for all experience levels and even for people who are not genealogists.  All days run from 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

The Exhibit Hall opens Thursday, and admission to it is free all three Days!  Find a wide variety of vendors, along with their sales.  (Sometimes I hang out at the Family Tree DNA booth, so drop by.)

This year has over 140 classes with over 85 speakers as well as one-on-one research help.  Three categories will help you in a variety of fields for your family history.  There are three conferences in one!

The 6th Annual Genetic Genealogy Conference, May 31, 2008 (and squeaks into June 1st) entitled Link Through DNA is, of course, my favorite. In these classes you can learn not only the basics of DNA testing, but more advanced techniques from some of the industry's leading speakers.  There are hands-on DNA Workshops as well.

The Family History Writers Conference, May 31 entitled Love Your Family Legends includes presentations on writing, publishing and preserving your genealogy along with reaching into the next generation to assure your work will continue.  The speakers will also cover the tools you need to finish your work.

The 49th Annual Genealogy Jamboree, June 1-2, will help you Unlock Your Lineage with some renown speakers in the field.  Learn the basics along with many tips and tricks, and explore how to break through those brick walls.

See the Jamboree website for the full schedule.  A mobile app is available.  There are discounts for SCGS Members and for multi-event registration.

HINT:  Notice anyone familiar on the advertisement above?  Yes, I am speaking and would love to have you attend my classes so I can meet you!

My topics:
Finding Answers through Your Autosomal DNA Test  (Thurs, May 31st, 8:30-9:30)
Comparing Testing Companies and Understanding DNA Tests (Workshop, Friday, June 1st 8:30 to 12:00)
I will be on the Ask the Experts about DNA and Genealogy panel (Friday, June 1, 5:00 to 6:00 pm)

I do hope to see you there!
