We're getting ready for the 45th annual SCGS Jamboree conference, organized by the Southern California Genealogical Society, which will be held June 5-8.
This year's theme is “Golden Memories: Discovering Your Family History.” The focus is on our European ancestors. Class sessions are scheduled for German, Irish, English/UK, Scotland, Eastern Europe, Italian, Mennonite, Swedish, and Russian, as well as African American and Jewish classes. An entire day (Thursday, June 5) is dedicated to learning about family history through DNA.
The conference offers speakers, exhibitors, class sessions and special events, and will be held in Burbank, California, from Thursday through Sunday, June 5-8, 2014.
We’re looking forward to reuniting with old friends and to meeting new faces at Jamboree.
The MyHeritage team at Jamboree will include:
Daniel Horowitz, Chief Genealogist
Schelly Talalay Dardashti, US Genealogy Advisor
Mark Olsen, Business Development Manager
Mike Stangel, General Manager at Geni
Amanda Tantisalidchai, Social Media Coordinator at Geni
As always, our team of experts will be happy to answer questions and provide tips for your family research. Please visit our booth #308 to participate in the activities.
