Did you know that the Southern California Genealogy Society Genealogy Jamboree is once again hosting pre-conference webinars that are Free and Open to the Public? Most genealogy conferences stream sessions concurrently with the event or as post-event recorded sessions, but SCGS offers two free webinars each month as a kind of “pre-conference” as the SCGS Genealogy Jamboree Extension Series.
Last night, I was honored to present Caring for Keepsakes: The Top 10 Family Treasures to a great online audience with SCGS host Paula Hinkel. We also had the chance to talk about the Heirloom Roadshow to be held on Sunday, June 8 at Jamboree. It promises to be a fun and informative event for everyone. Check the Jamboree Blog for more details.
Presenting online webinars and live lectures reminds me how much I enjoyed my years as a classroom teacher. There’s something about sharing your passion and hoping to ignite that fire in others that makes it all worthwhile.
Caring for Keepsakes in the SCGS Archive Soon!
If you missed last night’s webinar, you have a second chance. SCGS Members have full access to the archive library of recorded webinars at the SCGS Jamboree Extension website as a benefit of the $35 annual membership fee. With over 65 recorded webinars available, this benefit alone makes the membership fee a real bargain. Members also receive a special conference rate and access to World Vital Records and online databases. Join today; membership information is available at the SCGS Website.
And, pre-register now to attend the next online session in the SCGS Webinar Series Saturday, 3 May 2014 10:00 am – 11:30 am, Nifty and Powerful Technologies for Genealogical Analysis and Documentation by Ron Arons.
