Jamboree 2015 - Genealogy World JamboFREE Friday

Are you looking for ancestors on the Continent or in the Colonies? Trying to find your African American or Jewish forebears? Need help finding resources to research your ancestors who moved to the Midwest or the Southwest?

Join us and discuss your research successes or problem ancestors in an informal roundtable format at Genealogy World.

Genealogy World is scheduled for Friday morning, June 5. Session #1 will run from 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., and Session #2 will run from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 noon. It's just one of a number of JamboFREE activities, which means it is open to the public and available to attend at no cost. (We would appreciate your registering in advance so we know how many people to expect.)

While the topics are still being finalized for 2015, table discussions in the past have included a variety of subjects and geographic research assistance.  For example:

Denmark, Norway and Sweden
African American
Colonial Virginia
Lineage Society
New England

This year, thanks to our friends at ISOGG, Genealogy World will feature eight tables devoted to a variety of DNA topics.   For example:

FamilyTree DNA Test help
Beginning DNA
Autosomal DNA
DNA for Adoptees
DNA Test Company Comparisons
Mitochondrial and X chromosomal DNA
Test Result Help

We are seeking individuals to volunteer to serve as table host for one or both sessions. You don't need to be an expert, and you won't be expected to give a presentation. Just have an interest in the topic area and a willingness to keep the conversation moving along.  If you are interested in helping, email jamboreevolunteer@scgsgenealogy.com. 

Thanks to Sheila Benedict for organizing this year's Genealogy World.
