This Weekend -- Select SCGS Jamboree Sessions to Stream LIVE & FREE!



Though many of us won’t be the thousands hanging out this weekend in Southern California for the Southern California Genealogical Society Jamboree, as stated here, we can still “attend” via virtual means, some of the sessions!

Streamed sessions will be delivered at no cost to the viewing audience. As speakers permit, sessions will be archived and made available for viewing after Jamboree through the SCGS webinar archive. While we are not charging to view the sessions, we greatly appreciate the support of the genealogical community in making contributions to offset the expense of bandwidth, speaker honorarium, equipment, camera operators, etc. Depending on your personal situation, donations may be tax deductible. SCGS is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.

There are a limited number of viewing "seats" available for each session. For that reason, we will go off air between classes and will ask viewers to log in for each individual session. We appreciate everyone helping to "share the wealth" with other family historians around the world.

The sessions to be broadcast (and their registration links) include:
