Tuesday's Tips - Things To Do

RESEARCH TRIP - Our neighbors to the west at the California Genealogical Society (CGS) in Oakland are sponsoring a research trip to the Family History Library in Salt Lake City from April 22 – 29, 2012.  A peek under the curtain showed that details are being finalized.  This sounds like a great opportunity! Watch for information about this trip to be published soon on the CGS website!

JAMBOREE TIME -  Our neighbors in the Southland just announced that registration for the Jamboree is now open.  The press release says in part:

The center of the genealogical world will move to Burbank in June as the Southern California Genealogical Society opens the doors to the 43rd Annual Southern California Genealogy Jamboree.  The popular conference will be held at the home of Jamboree, Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Airport Hotel, 2500 Hollywood Way, Burbank, California, from Friday through Sunday, June 8 through the 10th. Pre-events Family History Writers Conference and Tech-Trax will be held on Thursday, June 7.
We expect to welcome about 1700 attendees, speakers, exhibitors, and volunteers to the Marriott. Our attendance makes Jamboree one of the most popular genealogical events in the United States.  Go to the Jamboree website to get the details on registration (both online and by mail), speakers, schedule, hotel reservations, maps and directions, local resources and sights, and those all-important FAQs. If you don't find what you're looking for, drop us a note at jamboree@scgsgenealogy.com and just ask. We want you to have the best experience possible. [Denise's Tip:  make hotel reservations as early as possible as the host hotel fills up fast and go early to attend the family history writier's conference.]

WRITING CONTEST - Right here in River City, the details about the 2nd Annual Family History Writing Contest sponsored by Root Cellar Sacramento Genealogical Society will be announced soon.  Polish your stories or start writing so you'll be ready to enter the contest.  What will the stories be about this year?  What will be the prizes?  Watch this blog for the "big reveal".
