The Southern California Genealogical Society is celebrating its 45th Annual Jamboree this weekend, June 6 – 8, 2014.

I’m not a member of SCGS, but I enjoy their terrific webinars that the Society regularly hosts throughout the year.

For 2014, SCGS Jamboree is “offering a record number of streamed sessions this year -- fourteen sessions over the three days. More important, these sessions are being offered absolutely free of charge.”

That last part is correct – 14 free sessions for you and me, members and non-members!

I’m not attending Jamboree, but I will be there in spirit, because I’ve signed up for five sessions. Here are my choices:

Friday, 6 June:

"DNA and the Genealogical Proof Standard", with Blaine Bettinger.
"Proof Arguments: How and Why", with F. Warren Bittner.

Saturday, 7 June:

"The Internet: A Genealogist's Printing Press", with Cyndi Ingle.

Sunday, 8 June:

"Dirty Pictures: Save Your Family Photos from Ruin", with Denise Levenick.

By the way, I’ve been informed that seats are still available for the free live-streamed sessions. So, if you want to take advantage of this offer and “experience the skill, knowledge, and expertise of some of the best speakers in today's genealogical community”, then head over to the SCGS website and register at Jamboree Live Streaming Schedule.

Also still available, are seats for the pay-per-view Family History and DNA live-streamed sessions on Thursday, June 5th. You can register for those classes here.
