SCGS Genealogy Jamboree - My Saturday Sessions

The Southern California Genealogical Society's 44th Annual Genealogy Jamboree is next week (June 7-9) in Burbank, California.  They 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 Saturday are on the Saturday sessions page.  Here is my list for Saturday, 8 June:

8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.:  

*  SA010:  D. Joshua Taylor - "Preserving Digital files - A Step-by-Step Guide"

10 a.m. to 11 a.m.:

*  SA018:  Kory Meyerink - "Genealogical Periodicals: Where the Answers Are"

11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

*  SA026:  Thomas MacEntee panel - "Blogger Summit"

2:00 p.m to 3 p.m.:

*  SA037:  Lisa Louise Cooke - "The Google Earth Military March Game Show"

3:30 p.m to 4:30 p.m.

*  SA045:  Judy G. Russell - "No Vitals? No Problem! Building a Family From Circumstantial Evidence"

5 p.m to 6 p.m.

*  SA048:  Thomas MacEntee - "Staying Safe Online"

That should keep me busy on Saturday.  Of course, I will do my share of wandering around the exhibit hall, which opens at 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. 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.
