Genealogy Jamboree has brought back their JamboFree events, and I am teaching the Advanced Beginning Genealogy class on Wednesday, June 9, 2021 from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm.

All Jamboree events are virtual and online only. I have some free prizes to give away during the class!

You don’t need to take the Beginning Genealogy class first.

Check out the JamboFREE schedule here!

To register, you must create an online account with SCGS. See you there!

“Advanced” Beginning Genealogy Class

I will be teaching an online “Advanced” Beginning Genealogy class on 9 June 2021 from 9 AM – 12 NOON with the Southern California Genealogy Society as part of their Special Events Week leading up to Genealogy Jamboree 2021.

More information will be available as they finalize the schedule. Visit their website, and revisit as they update from time to time. 9 June 9:00 AM has already been scheduled as the live online class for “Advanced” Beginning Genealogy.

If you have not yet taken the Beginning Genealogy class, that’s OK, there is no prerequisite for this class. You will learn more about genealogy research no matter what!

See you in June!

1950 US Census

The US Federal Government has a “72-Year Rule” keeping census records inaccessible to the public until 72 years after the census was enumerated. The 1950 US Census records will be released to the public in April 2022. The US Census Bureau has more information on their website.

Be sure to look for the records at the usual places, including FamilySearch, Ancestry, and National Archives in April of next year! We are anxiously awaiting access to the records where we can look up our ancestors, some of whom may still be with us!
