Tracing the Tribe is getting ready to travel to the Southern California Genealogical Society's Jamboree 2011, one of my favorite events. Jamboree is always on the cutting-edge of genealogy conferences and is the first conference to offer an IPad/iPhone app.
This year, several Jamboree sessions will be available free to genealogists and family historians around the globe, and made possible via sponsorship of RootsMagic. Five sessions will be streamed live on Saturday, June 11, with the first starting at 8.30am and the last ending at 4.30pm.
The Saturday sessions to be streamed are below. Click on each link to read more about each session and register.
-- Lisa Louise Cooke - SA009 - Google Search Strategies for Genealogists - 8:30-9:30am PDT
-- Curt B. Witcher, MLS, FUGA, IGSF - SA019 - Fingerprinting Our Families - Using Ancestral Origins as a Genealogical Research Key - 10-11:00am PDT
-- David A. Lambert - SA024 - Researching Your Union Civil War Ancestors - 11:30am-12:30pm PDT

These records are an extension of the SCGS online "webinar" (web-based seminar) series.
Viewers can listen and watch a presentation by registering and then signing on to a website. The original webcast of the streamed video sessions and webinars are available to the global genealogical community at no charge. Following the original broadcast, the sessions will be archived and available to SCGS members at the SCGS website.
Other Jamboree conference sessions will be available through GoToWebinar. Watch for that announcement.
