Jamboree 2016: Research Assistance Wrap-up

Guest post by Jamie Lee McManus Mayhew, PLCGS

What a wild and stimulating experience it was managing Research Assistance at Jamboree. Over an hour before we opened we had walk-ins hoping to secure a client spot with our Research Assistants. The Southern California Chapter of the Association of Professional Genealogists sponsors Research Assistance for the SCGS Jamboree and helped 92 clients over three days. Research Assistants came primarily from the Association of Professional Genealogists but included others who came in ready to help.  

We asked those who were pleased with their experience to consider donating to the Save the War of 1812 Pensions and collected $115 for that purpose. 

Many people come together to make Research Assistance a success. I want to thank Jean Wilcox Hibben, co-chair for Research Assistance, Lise Harding from SCGS, the many volunteers at Jamboree who helped keep us running and the following volunteer Research Assistants who gave generously of their time. I hope I didn’t miss any of you.
