It’s Jamboree Registration Time!

The Genealogy Jamboree is coming up this summer and will be all virtual!

There will be TWO virtual conferences: Genetic Jamboree (June 4 & 5, 2021) and Genealogy Jamboree (June 11 & 12, 2021). Jamboree is hosted by the Southern California Genealogical Society. Every year people travel here from all over the country and find a hotel, and this year it is all virtual to it’s even easier to attend!

To find more information and to register, go to the Jamboree Website.

I have learned a lot over the years, and this year I am a presenter! Hope to see you there!

Beginning Genealogy Class

March 13, 2021 9AM-12NOON Pacific Time

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. Check back for more details in February!

Beginning Genealogy Class is Cancelled

The Beginning Genealogy Class scheduled for May 9 has been cancelled.

Los Angeles County has extended their Safer At Home orders through May 15.

Also, the SCGS Library extends their closure through the end of May.

Stay safe, Stay at home.

Stay at Home Research

I find that I have more time to do my own genealogy research at home! Some companies are offering discounts for memberships, or other possibilities.

Ancestry is offering free at home learning opportunities for kids (and others young at heart) to learn about genealogy.

FamilySearch has always been free, the only requirement is to create a free online account.

Newspapers.com, owned by Ancestry, is offering discounts for membership.

There are others out there; I am getting emails from various places that I have a membership with about discounts on other programs or products, including MyHeritage, American Ancestors, and more, that are specific to subscribers that already have a membership. Check your inbox.

Have fun, stay at home, stay safe.
