I'm So There! - Registered for the SCGS Genealogy Jamboree

I registered for the SCGS Genealogy Jamboree (June 5-7, 2015) at the Burbank Airport Marriott Hotel the other day, and reserved our hotel room too.  So now I can wear the I Am So There! badge on my blog:

The Jamboree home page is at

You can register online at  Choose either the Members link or the Non-Members link on the list on the left margin.

Early-bird registration (until April 30) is $125 for SCGS Members and $145 for Non-Members for the three-day Jamboree (Friday, 5 June to Sunday, 7 June).  You can add the June 4th DNA Day Plus Add-on to Jamboree for $125 (SCGS Members) or $135 (SCGS Non-Members).  You can add Jamboree meals also using the Jamboree Meals link.  There are a number of additional workshops available also.

A printed syllabus can be added for $25.  The digital syllabus will be provided to registrants as part of the registration fees.

You can see the current Jamboree schedule at  There are 122 presentations on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  In most time slots, there are 8 or 9 different offerings.  On Friday morning, there are two fee-based workshops, and several free (for anyone) classes, including a Beginning Genealogy class, and the Genealogy World Roundtables.

The Jamboree publicity mentions livestreaming sessions, but I haven't seen the list yet for those who cannot attend in person.

I don't see a "Blogger Summit" on the list of classes - SCGS started this back in 2008.  Too bad.  Hopefully, there will be a Blogger photo arranged on one of the days at an appointed time.

Then there is the Exhibit Hall, with many exhibitors (not identified yet) - see

Linda and I will arrive on the Amtrak train from San Diego after noon on Thursday, and we look forward to seeing our friends and colleagues over the three days.  I will probably be blogging in the area between the hotel lobby and the elevators where most geneabloggers (and friends) congregate because the wifi is free there.

More to come!  I Am So There - and really looking forward to this Genealogy Jamboree.
