After a busy, fun weekend, followed by a couple of busy, less-fun days catching up at home, I finally have a chance to sit down and write about our weekend at the Southern California Genealogy Society’s Jamboree 2008.
It was an outstanding conference, and kudos go to Paula, Leo, and the rest of the SCGS volunteers who produced this event. This was my 2nd year attending, and I must say I had a lot more fun this year than last!
You’ve probably already read some terrific articles posted by other genea-bloggers who attended: Steve Danko, Schelly Talalay Dardashti, Dick Eastman, Craig Manson, Randy Seaver, and Kathryn Doyle of the California Genealogical Society & Library. Some wrote multiple posts, so you may need to search under "conferences."
I’ll try to present a slightly different view of things… which shouldn’t be hard. After all, none of those other bloggers
had got to travel with a 2-year old!
