As part of its 47th Annual Southern California Genealogy Jamboree, Giving to the Future by Preserving the Past, the Southern California Genealogical Society will live stream several conference presentations for free, and registration is now open.
Thanks to financial support from Ancestry.com, you will be able to attend 14 free presentations, from Friday, June 3 to Sunday, June 5 — all from the comfort of your home computer or tablet.
If unable to watch any presentation in real time as it is being live streamed, you will have until July 5, 2016 to watch the recorded version on the society’s live stream website. This is especially good news for those of us attending the Ontario Genealogical Society’s annual conference in Toronto that weekend.
Session descriptions, speaker bios, suggested experience levels, and schedule details are available on the Jamboree website.
The Jamboree streaming video is free, but you must register here to view the live broadcasts.
