Jamboree: Genealogy World Round Table Discussions

Are you looking for ancestors on the Continent or in the Colonies? Trying to find your Jewish or Scandinavian forebears? Wondering how to figure out whether those family stories are true?

Discuss your research successes or problem ancestors in an informal roundtable format at Genealogy World. Hosted tables will be available at which like-minded individuals can share and learn.

A JamboFREE activity, Genealogy World is scheduled on Friday morning, June 8. Two sessions will be held: one from 9:00-10:15 a.m. and the second from 10:45 a.m.-12:00 noon. Not all topics will be covered in both sessions. Here is a list of the currently scheduled topics:

Adoption Research
Denmark, Norway & Sweden Research
Chinese Research
English Research
Family Folklore
FamilySearch Wiki
Genealogists in Second Life
Germanic Research
Virginia Research
Irish Research
Japanese Research
Jewish Research
Lineage Society Research
Midwest Research
New England Research
Organizing Your Research
Preserving Family Heirlooms
Portuguese Research
Scottish Research
Sharing Your Family Stories
Southern Research

Don’t see the topic you would like to discuss with other genealogists? Are you willing to serve as the table host? A few tables are available in the 9:00 a.m. session and, if you are willing to serve as host, we would be happy to reserve a table. You don’t need to be an expert to be a table host, but general knowledge of the topic is important to be able to keep the conversation going if required.

Just get in touch with jamboree@scgsgenealogy.com and put "Genealogy World" in the subject line.

GenealogyWorld is free and no registration is required. You'll find GenealogyWorld in Pavilion #1 at the Los Angeles Marriott Burbank, 2500 Hollywood Way, Burbank CA 91504.

Also during JamboFREE on Friday morning you'll find beginning genealogy classes, Librarians' Genealogy Boot Camp, and the Society Development Workshop.

See you there!
