One of my favorite conferences of the year is the Southern California Genealogy Jamboree held in June in Burbank each year. The speakers are stellar. The exhibit hall is full of learning opportunities. There are great prizes to won and lots of genealogy networking to be done.
If you live anywhere near Burbank, you should make the effort to be there. JamboFREE starts tomorrow, Thursday, May 31st. They’ve got free genealogy basics classes and roundtables going on all day long. Or you could register for the Genetic Genealogy Day or the Writers Conference, also held on Thursday, May 31st.
The main Jamboree conference is held Friday and Saturday, June 1st and 2nd with dozens of classes taught by some of the best genealogists in the country. (And a couple by me.) The exhibit hall is free. So, even if you don’t want to pay to spend two full days at the conference, you can come by and visit Ancestry where we will be teaching several classes in our booth throughout the event.

Don’t live anywhere near Burbank? We’ve got something for you, too. Ancestry is sponsoring the Live Streaming of Jamboree again this year. That means that for a very low cost, you can watch up to six classes a day from the comfort of your own home. Check out the full Jamboree Live Streaming Schedule. There is a lot to learn!
You can also catch conference highlights on Twitter by following along with #SCGS2018. And, hopefully, if you can’t make it in person this time, we’ll see you in Burbank next year!
