You won't be bored between sessions. Videos featuring Ancestry's crackerjack training team, Crista Cowan, Juliana Szucs and Ann Mitchell, will run during Jamboree breaks and lunches.

We hope you will share these broadcasts with others. Because the sessions are sponsored by Ancestry and available for free, you can host viewing parties with one or two friends, or with a room full of fellow society members. Of course, we also hope you will share this email to help us promote this outstanding opportunity.

If you can't watch a session real time as it is being live streamed, you will be able to watch it at your convenience before July 5, 2015, from the special Jamboree archive. DNA live-streamed sessions will not be available for purchase on DVD, nor will they be accessible in the SCGS website archive.

Registration for the pay-per-view and free Jamboree sessions will remain open through July 5, 2015, when the special archive will close.

DNA Pay Per View 

If you missed the announcement about the Genetic Genealogy: DNA Day pay-per-view broadcast, you can find all the details on the DNA registration page.
