Planning My Classes for the Genealogy Jamboree - Saturday, 7 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 http://app.core-apps.com/scgs2014/events/view_by_day?day=Jun++7. Here are my plans for Saturday, 7 June 2014:

8:30 a.m.:  SA004 - John Colletta -- The County Courthouse: Your "Trunk in the Attic" -- in Pavilion 2

10 a.m.:  SA019 -- Judy Russell -- Staying Out of Trouble: The Rights and Responsibilities of Today's Genealogist -- in Hollywood Burbank Room

11:30 a.m.:  SA026 -- Panel -- Blogger's Summit (Thomas MacEntee - Moderator. Panelists - Blaine Bettinger JD, Heather Wilkinson Rojo, Randy Seaver, Nicka Smith) -- in Academy 3 Room

2 p.m.: SA037 - Bennet Greenspan -- The Future of Genetic Genealogy -- in Hollywood Burbank Room

3:30 p.m.: SA046 - Janet Hovorka -- Back to Basic Research Practices in the Age of Internet Genealogy -- in Academy 3 Room

5 p.m.: SA047 - George G. Morgan -- Five Reasons Records Aren't in the Courthouse -- in Pavilion 1

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 will write about my Sunday classes later in the week.
