Planning My Classes for the Genealogy Jamboree - Friday, 6 June 2014

The Ancestry Insider had an excellent post today titled "NGS2014GEN Planning Your Time at a Conference" so I thought that I would try to plan my time at the upcoming Southern California Genealogy Jamboree.  

The class schedule, including the syllabus material for Friday is at http://app.core-apps.com/scgs2014/events/view_by_day?day=Jun++6. Here are my plans for Friday, 6 June 2014:

*  8:30 a.m.:  FR000E1 - Engaging the Next Generation (D. Joshua Taylor and Elyse Doerflinger) -- in Hotel Holleywood Room

*  10:45 a.m.:  FR000G2 - SCGS - Genealogy World Roundtable Discussions (I am hosting "Technology and Social Media" table) -- Pavlion 1

*  1 p.m.:  FR009 - Dowered or Bound Out: Records of Widows and Orphans (Judy Russell) -- in Hotel Hollywood Room

*  2:30 p.m.:  FR013 - Who, What, Why, When, Where and How of American Divorce (Judy Russell) -- in Pavilion Room

* 4 p.m.:  FR020 - Free Online Tools to Jump Start Your British Research (Kathy Warburton) -- in Academy 2 Room

*  5:30 p.m.:  FR034 - Proof Arguments: How and Why? (Warren Bittner) -- in Hollywood Burbank Room

Those are just the classes that I've selected.  I may not make all of them because I also want to:

*  Visit with folks in the Expo Hall, and the best time to do that is during class times.  I need to take pictures for my blog to share with readers.

*  Write one or two blogs posts each day, perhaps in the evening in the blogger's lounge where the wi-fi is free.  I'm not going to do it in my room because of the exorbitant hotel charges for Internet service.

*  Visit with my geneablogger friends and readers in the blogger's lounge.  We do tend to talk a lot!

*  Eat breakfast (in the restaurant), lunch (in the breezeway) and dinner (probably in the restaurant) each day.

I will highlight my Saturday and Sunday classes next week in separate blog posts.
