FREE Live Streaming from SCGS Jamboree (5-7 June 2015)




Last week we mentioned that the SCGS Jamboree would have two live streaming options, SCGS Offers Two Streaming Options for Those Unable to Attend in Person (5-7 June 2015).

The news from SCGS about what will be available via FREE live streaming is now here!

Last week, we announced the schedule for the pay-per-view live streamed sessions from Genetic Genealogy: DNA Day. Thank you to genealogists from around the world who have already registered for the DNA pay-per-view sessions.  

Now it's time to release the rest of the news. Here is the schedule for the FREE live streaming from the 46th Annual Southern California Genealogy Jamboree. 

We are very grateful to our Diamond Sponsor, Ancestry, which is underwriting the cost of the Jamboree live stream. With their support, SCGS is able to bring you 14 hours of high-quality family history education absolutely free. Handouts will be provided with each session. 

The live-streamed sessions from Jamboree are listed below. Session descriptions, speaker bios, suggested experience levels and schedule details are provided on the registration site and will soon be posted on the Jamboree website..
