SCGS Genealogy Jamboree - My Friday Sessions

The Southern California Genealogical Society's 44th Annual Genealogy Jamboree is next week (June 7-9) in Burbank, California.  They just announced their FREE Live Video Streaming sessions on their blog post here.  That is an excellent opportunity for distant genealogists to see world-class speakers for free at home.

I downloaded the Jamboree App for my iPhone and Samsung tablet last week, and have now selected my sessions to attend.  The schedule of classes for Friday are on the Jambo Free page and the Friday sessions page.  Here is my list for Friday, 7 June:

9 a.m. to 10:15 a.m.:

*  FR000F1:  John Colletta, on "NARA - Our National Archives:  The Astounding Institution and How to Use It"

10:45 a.m. to 12 noon:

*  FR000B:  "Genealogy World Roundtable Discussions"

1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.

*  FR005:  Geoff Rasmussen on "What's New in Legacy Family Tree 8"

3 p.m. to 4 p.m.:

*  FR016:  Judy G. Russell on "The Ethical Genealogist"

4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m.:

*  FR026:  Daniel Poffenberger on "The Parish Chest: Beyond the Baptism, Marriage and Burial Registers"

That should keep me busy on Friday.  Of course, I will do my share of wandering around the exhibit hall, which opens at 12 noon, but I'm looking forward to attending classes, seeing my friends and colleagues, and enjoying the Jamboree atmosphere.  Most evenings, I'll be in the "Bloggers lounge" between the hotel lobby and the west wing of the hotel.

I'm glad that some of the other sessions will be on video so that I, as an SCGS member, can watch them later.

I like that you post your schedule for the conferences you attend. It gives me a chance to reflect on my own choices and sometimes I'll readjust because I don't see something interesting that you might. If that makes sense.
