*What happened to free Live Streaming at Jamboree?

Ancestry.com has generously underwritten the Jamboree Live Streaming program for several years and is doing so again this year. The SCGS is very appreciative of Ancestry’s support of our conferences. Unfortunately, ever increasing costs have caught up to us and prevent us from offering this event at no charge. 

The Jamboree Committee has kept fees as low as possible. For members, the fee is $10 for 12 classes. That’s just 83 cents per class! For non-members, the fee is $55 for the 12 classes or just $4.58 per class. Compared to other conferences, SCGS Live Stream offerings remain a bargain! 


Disclosure:  I am a member of SCGS and have been off and on for about 10 years.  I have received financial considerations from SCGS as a geneablogger and presenter in past years.
