We sure live in a time that you can stay home, never leave home, never go to a conference and be able to view free top sessions through your computer at home or anywhere you choose.
Another opportunity is here and will be available in June - straight from the Southern California Jamboree in Burbank, California.
The Southern California Genealogical Society has released the schedule of live-streamed sessions that will be available FREE at the Southern California Genealogy Jamboree June 6-8, 2014.
A total of 14 free sessions will be streamed over the three days of Jamboree. The sessions are open to the public and can be attended by anyone with a broadband Internet connection. Free Free Free!! Did I mention they are free?
The live streaming is sponsored in part by Jamboree's diamond sponsor, Ancestry.com. Many of the streamed sessions will eventually be accessible to SCGS members in the webinar archive, which holds more than 100 hours of instructional videos that are available on demand to members of the society.
In addition, five live-streamed sessions will be available for viewing from the Family History and DNA: Genetic Genealogy in 2014 conference on Thursday, June 5. Because that event is produced by ISOGG and SCGS and it does not accept financial support, the live-streamed sessions are available on a pay-for-view basis. An All-Day Pass is also offered. Because the Family History and DNA Conference does not receive any sponsorship support, we ask our audience to support the costs of the streamed sessions on Thursday. Each individual class costs $30. A discounted Full-Day Pass opens the door to all five sessions, plus free download of the DNA syllabus with handouts for all 20 sessions.
The sessions can be viewed real-time, as it is being delivered in Burbank, or when it's convenient any time before July 5. The Family History and DNA sessions will not be available for later viewing in the SCGS webinar archive, so don't miss this opportunity to view these professional genetic genealogists.
