Jamboree Musings - Post 4

Here are some photos from my day at the SCGS Genealogy Jamboree on Saturday.

One of my favorite booths was the California Genealogical Society table - this is Jane Lindsey, Kathryn Doyle and Carolyn Steinberg. Wonderful, friendly young ladies, and their Hershey mini-bars were excellent (see the blue basket on the table?)!

I caught Leland Meitzler in a happy moment (he's happy every time I talk to him!) without distractions, and took this picture of him and his booth. This would be a great picture without the flash back. I signed up for the $10 EGH digital subscription.

I stopped by the New England Historical and Genealogical Society booth and talked to Tom Champoux, Chris Childs and G. Brenton Simons. This is a candid picture because they were real busy all day, it seemed. That's Tom on the left, Brenton bending over and Gary Boyd Roberts seated on the right.

I mentioned the CVGS Tech Zone yesterday - here is a candid shot of some of the computers set up to permit Jamboreeists to access web sites and databases for free. The set up came in real handy for SCGS late yesterday after they found that the Syllabus put on the CDs had left out the pages for several presentations. The SCGS folks commandeered the Tech Zone and created replacement CDs for those attendees that had them.

The Roots Television booth was a popular spot all day. That is Marcy Brown in the red suit on the left, and Megan Smolenyak on the right in this candid shot. Megan had three talks this afternoon back-to-back-to-back after doing the Blogger Summit this morning.

I will try to get more posed shots tomorrow to replace some of these. I'm not a fan of seeing the backs of people, or people not expecting to have their picture taken.

Thanks for the kind words. The candy was a big hit with all of our visitors. Credit goes to Events Coordinator, Carolyn Steinberg.
