Jamboree 2019

I’m official!

I am in California this week for the Southern California Genealogical Society’s annual Genealogy Jamboree. I love this conference because it is so extremely well run and has very many of the same wonderful and dynamic speakers that you would find at the national conference level. This weekend I’m looking forward to hearing sessions by Judy Russell, Blaine Bettinger, Cyndi Ingle, Thomas MacEntee, Devon Noel Lee and more.

Today was DNA Day and I’m probably the only person in the genealogy world who isn’t interested in attending any of these workshops, so I’m planning out my schedule for the next several days. 

As usual,  there are always two things scheduled at the same time that I really, really want to see. But for now, my schedule for tomorrow looks something like this. And, by the way, if you aren’t using the Jamboree Mobile app…you are missing out. It is one of the best conference apps I’ve ever used for a regional conference.

    I am so looking forward to the Jamboree! It will be my fifth time to go. Taking the train from Anaheim to Burbank at 6 a.m. tomorrow and staying at the Marriott where the Jamboree is held. Each year this amazing conference is even better than the last! Hope to see you around at some point this weekend. (Like you, I don’t have that much interest in much of the DNA studies, which is why I’m not going up until Friday.)
