Registration for Live Streaming of SCGS's 2017 Genealogy Jamboree is Now Open

Today Monday, May 22, the Southern California Genealogy Society (SCGS) opened up registration for the FREE live streamed sessions of the 48th Annual Southern California Genealogy Jamboree. 

The 2017 Genealogy Jamboree begins Thursday, June 8, with DNA Day and continues Friday, June 9 through Sunday, June 11. There will be hours of free genealogy education Friday through Sunday with handouts available. Sponsorship by Ancestry.com is making this possible. Registration gets you a user login and password sent by email to join the live stream event. 

The live streamed DNA sessions on Thursday are pay-to-view and must be registered for separately. If you have already payed/registered for the Thursday DNA sessions just log into your account and check the box at the bottom to add access to the free sessions. You will be sent a separate login for the Friday to Sunday free sessions. 

Visit the SCGS blog site or the Jamboree website to see the complete schedule of live streamed sessions for each day.

If you can not watch the sessions live, you will be able to watch at your convenience before July 10, 2017, from the special Jamboree Archive. You will still need to register to view the special archive. Live stream registration will remain available until July 10, 2017. (These sessions from Jamboree will not be added to the regular webinar archive for SCGS members only.) 

You will need the SCGS Jamboree 2017 App to access the session handouts. As of today, the handouts are not yet posted. 

The SCGS Jamboree 2017 app is made for smart phones just go to Google Play or the Apple Store (iOS) to download the app. Look for SCGS Jamboree 2017. The app has a tablet mode so it can be used by those too. There is a browser version (found here) accessible via browser on any computer for those without smart phones and tablets. To access a session's handout you must "browse" to that session's information page. Look for the PDF icon. There is no option to download all handouts for your sessions at one time. If a session handout is not there, check back at a later date to see if it has been added. Please note the Jamboree app is by the same company that provided this year's RootsTech app and it is showing similar issues discussed then. We will do separate post on how to access the session handouts. 

The sessions picked for live streaming are varied and look interesting so if you want to watch it all live plan your days accordingly and enjoy some genealogy education.
