Bag Inserts – Don’t throw away those Show Specials!

We’ve asked every Exhibitor to offer you a show special that beats anything you can get on the Internet.  Many have put their show specials on their conference bag flyers. So, don’t just chuck those papers in the nearest bin!  Take a moment to see who has the special you’ve been waiting for … maybe one you haven’t thought of yet!

Give or Get Research Help at Jamboree 2018

One of the best ways to spring over the wall is to get free help with your research

Jamboree and the Southern California Chapter of the Association of Professional Genealogists, are offering research assistance to Jamboree for the 7th year.  How does Research Assistance work at Jamboree?  We need people to help and we need people to sign up to receive that help.  You earn Genealogy Karma as a Research Assistant helping Jamboree attendees.  Or, as a Jamboree attendee you can get research assistance from amazing volunteers.

Volunteer to Help:                  
Qualifications: Know something about genealogy and be willing to share your knowledge.  You do not need to be board certified or accredited, or belong to SCCAPG or APG, to volunteer.
Click here to sign-in and sign-up as an RA Now!



Hint: List your area of interest and specialty
Whether it is basic genealogy or more advanced, please be really specific.  Please list each area separately.  It is easier for attendees to sign up for your help.


Need Help in Your Research:             
Need some one-on-one time with your beginning, intermediate or advanced problem?
Need a fresh set of eyes to look at your research and work you’ve done to date?
We have Research Assistant volunteer to help you.
Sign up now for a 20-minute slot.
Click here to sign-in and sign-up for Assistance HERE!


During Jamboree:

Stop by the Research Assistance rooms in the Tech Hallway during the weekend and check for availability of walk-in spots for both RA volunteers and attendees.  Bring copies of your material or bring your laptop or tablet with your information as an option. Come as organized and prepared as possible for the best help.
