Jamboree – Streaming Sessions

The Southern California Genealogical Society (SCGS) hosts an annual conference called Jamboree, which takes place this weekend, June 8-10, in Burbank, California.

SCGS has just announced which sessions from this year’s Jamboree will be streamed live online. The sessions, descriptions, times, and links to the webinar registration pages are on their blog. If you’ve got some time this weekend, you can attend even if you can’t go to Burbank.

Beginning in March 2011, SCGS launched the Jamboree Extension Series, genealogy webinars presented throughout the year. These webinars, two per month, are free to attend live and archived for members for later viewing. The 2012 schedule can be found online.

Many of the topics offered, both during Jamboree and in the Extension Series, are appropriate to Jewish genealogists, such as the various methodology and technology courses. The Extension Series finishes off 2012 in December with Sharing and Preserving Memories in a Digital Era presented by Daniel Horowitz followed by Jewish Genealogy 101 by Schelly Dardashti. You can sign up for these well in advance from the 2012 schedule page (link above).

Sessions are limited to the first 1000 attendees, so be ready to log in early (especially for this weekend) because they might fill up quickly.
