SCGS Jamboree 2008 Program is Available

The Southern California Genealogical Society Jamboree for 2008 will be held in Burbank CA on 27-29 June, 2008 at the Burbank Airport Marriott Hotel and Convention Center. It's just 116 days away!

The Jamboree program has just been released and the announcement is here for the program schedule and attendance information.

Take a close look at the list of presenters and see if you know anybody listed ... hint - look at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday. Yep - some of the best "friends" I've never met will be getting together to talk about genealogy blogging.

I will have more to say when the time gets closer.

I wonder what I should wear? Probably not the clothes that I usually blog in ... I'm not sure that sweatshirt, PJs and white socks without shoes are appropriate for this occasion. I'm thinking a wild Hawaiian shirt ... hmmm, that would probably be better on the cruise, but it's what I wear now as President of CVGS. I just hope I don't have to go buy a tie to wear. I'm sure that Angel Linda will help me here!

The San Diego Genealogical Society is sponsoring a train journey to the Jamboree for the Saturday program (I think). We'll go and stay in the hotel, I think, and Linda can entertain our daughter's family (or vice versa) while I'm at the conference.

I thought it ironic that a certain corporation is your sponsor, given last August's--ahem!--unfortunate incident! Guess they've learned which on side their bread is buttered; not to bite the hand that feeds them; to keep their friends close and...well, enough with the old catch my drift! ;-)

We'll probably see you there. I'll be the one with the toddler in tow, hanging out on and off at the DAR table in the exhibit room. I'll be on the lookout for your Hawaiian shirt!
