Planning My Classes for the Genealogy Jamboree - Sunday, 8 June 2014

The Ancestry Insider had an excellent post last week 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 Here are my plans for Sunday, 8 June 2014:

8:30 a.m.:  SU-006 -- Michael Provard - FamilySearch's New Mobile App: Your Family Tree on the Go - in Pavilion 1

10 a.m.:  SU016 -- Panel -- Rebranding Genealogy and Engaging the Next Generation -- Hotel Pasadena Room (Moderator is Janet Hovorka, panelists are Crista Cowan, Elyse Doerflinger, A.C. Ivory, Michael Melendez, and D. Joshua Taylor).

1 p.m.:  I haven't selected a session yet.  I may just hang out in the Expo Hall.

2:30 p.m.:  Our train leaves at 4:22 p.m., so I need to pack, check out and get a Subway sandwich for dinner rather than attend this session.

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 highlighted my Friday classes here and my Saturday classes here.

The Genealogy Jamboree 2014 mobile app has been updated recently to include the venue for each class.
