I received an email from the Jamboree Blog, part of which is pasted below:
Closed-captioning was developed to create a way to include the hearing-impaired. During Jamboree’s 51-year history, inclusion has always been and continues to be our core value. We strive to create an environment that will benefit everyone, including different cultures, races, religions, and disabilities. Did you know that closed-captioned, as opposed to open captioned, means you turn it on? That means only those who prefer this benefit use it. While it was developed for the hard of hearing its benefits extend beyond. Its mainstream use is seen in restaurants or bars with TVs on. When the background noise is an obstacle, the captions at the bottom include everyone! So if your house is still full and noise is your norm, this tool will benefit you too.
I will be teaching a virtual, online only, Beginning Genealogy Class with the Southern California Genealogical Society. Our last virtual class had over 200 attendees! We will have online handouts.
You will learn how to begin genealogy research, how to stay organized, where to look, what to do when you find records, and we will cover both paper and digital approaches to research. Excellent for any beginner or intermediate genealogy researcher. This class will be virtual, online only.
