Jamboree Live Stream

Last week, we announced the schedule for the pay-per-view live streamed sessions from Genetic Genealogy: DNA Day. Thank you to genealogists from around the world who have already registered for the DNA pay-per-view sessions.

Now it's time to release the rest of the news. Here is the schedule for the FREE live streaming from the 46th Annual Southern California Genealogy Jamboree.  Registration is now open!

We are very grateful to our Diamond Sponsor, Ancestry, which is underwriting the cost of the Jamboree live stream. With their support, SCGS is able to bring you 14 hours of high-quality family history education absolutely free. Handouts will be provided with each session.

The live-streamed sessions from Jamboree are listed below. Session descriptions, speaker bios, suggested experience levels and schedule details are provided on the registration site and will soon be posted on the Jamboree website..

You won't be bored between sessions. Videos featuring Ancestry's crackerjack training team, Crista Cowan, Juliana Szucs and Ann Mitchell, will run during Jamboree breaks and lunches.

We hope you will share these broadcasts with others. Because the sessions are sponsored by Ancestry and available for free, you can host viewing parties with one or two friends, or with a room full of fellow society members. Of course, we also hope you will share this email to help us promote this outstanding opportunity.

If you can't watch a session real time as it is being live streamed, you will be able to watch it at your convenience before July 5, 2015, from the special Jamboree archive. DNA live-streamed sessions will not be available for purchase on DVD, nor will they be accessible in the SCGS website archive.

Registration for the pay-per-view and free Jamboree sessions will remain open through July 5, 2015, when the special archive will close.

DNA Pay Per View

If you missed the announcement about the Genetic Genealogy: DNA Day pay-per-view broadcast, you can find all the details on the DNA registration page.

I cannot seem to get onto the page where you can order tapes/CDs of the sessions. I know this is the wrong comments page, but I need to contact someone about this, as I'd like to take advantage of the discount when ordering. Can you please point me in the right direction ? Thanks.

Alva, sorry I didn't see your comment until now. The order page is here and I hope you will still be able to take advantage of the discount.

If this link doesn't work for some reason, go to genealogyjamboree.com - there is a drop-down that says "order past recordings" or something like that. Clicking that will take you to the ordering page.
