Jamboree - Last Day

Blogger Group Photo - find Ron and Denise
 The June Gloom weather had a strong foothold on the area this morning.  There was a light mist which lasted so long that the Marriott staff set-up the lunch buffet inside the conference center.  Yet Murphy's Law ruled, and by the 11:30 break for lunch, they had relocated everything outside.  The mist cleared but the sun was shy until later in the afternoon.

 Today's class schedule included English, Scottish and Welsh research; using the iPad and iPhone for genealogy; collateral research; and funeral home and cemetery research.  Toss in a little help at Blogger Island and one last round-about through the exhibit hall and we called it a day. 

We thank the Southern California Genealogical Society Jamboree Committee led by Paula and Leo, all the volunteers and the Marriott staff for their hospitality.

We also thank Thomas MacEntee of Geneabloggers for organizing and for arranging for and sponsoring the Blogger Welcome Bags and the ice cream social.

A special tip of the cap goes to Lynn Parmenter and "I'm sorry I forgot her name", the SCGS Volunteer Coordinator, who were caught in the act of kindness which was appreciated.

Enjoy a few more pictures.  Be sure to mark your calendars for June 2012.
