Sneak Peek - Jamboree Genealogy Workshops

Sneak Peek Series


Genealogy is the second most popular hobby in our country. Regardless of our current levels, we all began learning at some point and understand that our learning must continue. In fact, the more we learn, the more we understand what we don't know.  Conferences and conventions have fun one-hour classes that are very informative, but the key to learning is in workshops. They provide a hands-on approach that accelerates learning due to the extended time of a TWO-HOUR session!

Our offering this year include:

MAY 30

10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

    Presenter: Paula Stuart-Warren, CG®, FMGS, FUGA

    Presenter: Denise May Levenick, MA

2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

    Presenter: Devon Noel Lee

    Presenter: Daniel Earl

               More Workshops to Follow Next Week!
