Jamboree - Flashback to the 60s - Have You Shared Your Memories?

Have you written your Flashback to the 60s and sent it to the Jamboree Committee? You have a week - until Friday noon June 6 - to submit your remembrances and be entered in the drawing for a free registration to the 2015 Jamboree.

We'll display the submissions at Jamboree so everyone has a chance to read them. Look for them in signs that are located outside of Academy 2.

Have you read the ones that have already been submitted?  If not, take a few minutes and read them here. I have really enjoyed reading the memories. One thing that struck me is that we of a certain age have a lot of shared experiences, regardless of where we lived.

Here are the guidelines:

Entries are limited to registered attendees of the 2014 Southern California Genealogy Jamboree attendees and/or members of the Southern California Genealogical Society.

Please keep your entries to 400 words or less. It can be as short as a couple of sentences.

Email entries to flashback1960@scgsgenealogy.com. Put the content directly into the email; no attachments please. Your subject line should read "Flashback 1960." Include your Name, Address, City, State, Zip, Phone number, and email address at the bottom of the email.

Any research used in the submission must be supported by end note citations. For guidelines on citation style, see Evidence, Citation & Analysis for the Family Historian, by Elizabeth Shown Mills (Genealogical Publishing Co.). End notes are not included in the word count.

Entries may be posted online and/or displayed at Jamboree. Entrants grant SCGS the one-time right to publish their memory in the SCGS journal, The Searcher; and/or the SCGS website; and/or the Jamboree app, and/or displayed in electronic or print form at Jamboree. You retain the copyright to your work.

The winner will be announced on Friday, June 6, at the banquet. Submissions will be accepted through Friday noon, June 6.
