First California Company will again have our informational table at the 44th Annual Southern California Genealogy Jamboree in Burbank, Friday through Sunday, June 7 through 9, 2013. If past Jamborees are any indication, it will be a rewarding event and enhance your genealogical skills.
This is the pre-eminent annual collection of genealogical resources in Southern California. Anyone needing tools, education and research tips and clues to help find their Qualified Ancestors or collateral lines is likely to find something to aid them. We especially urge any potential or prospective member to attend. You can plan your visit by exploring “how to make best use of your time” and looking at the list of exhibitors and program.
According to the Jamboree’s website, it will be held at the Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Airport Hotel, 2500 Hollywood Way, Burbank, California, from Friday through Sunday, June 7 through the 9th. With about 1600 attendees, speakers, exhibitors, and volunteers, Jamboree is one of the largest genealogical events in the United States.
This year’s theme is “Follow the Path to the Past,” and…as in the past, it is fortunate to have world-class speakers leading nearly 100 classes.
New to Jamboree this year is the introduction of thirteen 90-minute workshop sessions (Friday and Sunday) to allow attendees to dig deep into the subjects of interest. Best of all, there is no additional charge for these workshops!
The website offers details with directions and parking information.
Please look for our exhibit at Table 126. Scheduled there are the Holgates for Friday, Kinzles for Saturday, and Krutileks for Sunday. We will welcome any members who could offer them support and time to tour the hall and attend a workshop or two. Please contact Phyllis Kinzle if you can do so.
As our own Annual Meeting will be held the following week, Saturday, June 15, there also will be a good opportunity to exchange experiences with other Company members.
Hi, Only just found out about it, sounded like a good event that I would have liked to have attended. Any plans for a 2014 event?
Dawne, This has been an annual event for some time, so it likely will be held again in early June. We will likely post news about our participation in the spring. In the meantime, you should watch the Southern California Genealogical Society’s website for advance information. Go to: http://www.scgsgenealogy.com/
