It didn’t take much imagination to find the “Stars” at the Southern California Genealogical Society 2012 Jamboree… they were everywhere! Paula Hinkel, Leo Myers, and Vicki Hilb obviously have “connections” because attendees at SCGS 2012 were treated to a non-stop stream of celebrity sightings. Fans of The Voice and American Idol were able to catch their favorites lounging about the Marriott lobby and outdoor reception area, AND had a bonus preview of musical numbers during impromptu rehearsals in the guest rooms. (I hear that the sound carried very well!)
The Friday Night Gala was a departure from the typical conference banquet. Attendees entered the room down the red carpet to an informal pasta bar reception. Real-life celebrities Carla Laemmle and Margaret O’Brien were on hand to sign autographs, and Fab PhotoBooth provided non-stop photo fun.
