SCGS's Genealogy Jamboree App Is Available -- Needed to Access Handouts

For our MCGG members who like learning genealogy-related stuff through online webinars and who are planning to watch (later this week) the Live Streamed Sessions of the Southern California Genealogy Society's 2015 Genealogy Jamboree, please be aware that the 2015 Jamboree App is now available.

You will need the Jamboree App to access the session handouts.

The app is available for smart phones, tables, iPhones and iPads, as wells as accessible via browser on any computer. See the Genealogy Jamboree blog post that explains how to get the Jamboree App. To access a session's handout you must "browse" to that session's information page. There is no option to download all handouts for your sessions at one time.

There is a fee for the live streamed DNA sessions which take place on this Thursday. The free live streamed sessions begin this Friday and run through Sunday. You do need to register for the free live stream sessions. See our earlier post on how to do that. The free live stream sessions will be available for about one month to view afterwards but you still need to register.

Here are the 2015 Genealogy Jamboree free live stream sessions.
