Jamboree: Free Live Streaming Video Sessions

The Southern California Genealogical Society proudly announces that several Jamboree sessions will be available at no cost to genealogists and family historians around the globe. This offer is made possible through a special sponsorship provided by one of the conference’s exhibitor partners and long-time friend of Jamboree, RootsMagic.

Five sessions will be live-streamed on Saturday, June 11, 2011. The first session begins at 8:30 a.m. and the last session ends at 5:30 p.m. 

“This technological step forward is challenging and exciting for Jamboree,” said conference chair Leo Myers. “One of the missions of the Southern California Genealogical Society is to help educate genealogists and family historians, and we take that mission very seriously. We are so excited about the opportunity to reach hundreds of genealogists around the globe.”
