SCGS Genealogy Jamboree - My Sunday Sessions

The Southern California Genealogical Society's 44th Annual Genealogy Jamboree is next week (June 7-9) in Burbank, California.  They announced their FREE Live Video Streaming sessions on their blog post here.  That is an excellent opportunity for distant genealogists to see world-class speakers for free at home.

I downloaded the Jamboree App for my iPhone and Samsung tablet last week, and have now selected my sessions to attend.  The schedule of classes for Sunday are on the Sunday sessions page.  Here is my list for Sunday, 9 June:

8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.:  

 SU008:  Thomas MacEntee - "Successful Cluster and Collateral Searches"

10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.:

*  SU012:  Paula Stuart-Warren - "What Next? Developing Research Plans"

1 p.m. to 2 p.m.

*  SU023:  Pamela Weisberger - "Chutes and Ladders: Approaches to Genealogy"

2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

We usually have to leave around 3 p.m. in order to catch the Amtrak train back to San Diego, so I will not attend a session at this time.  Too bad, there are some good ones!

That should keep me busy on Sunday.  Of course, I will do my share of wandering around the exhibit hall, which opens at 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. 

I'm glad that some of the other sessions will be on video so that I, as an SCGS member, can watch them later.
