It is exactly three weeks from the start of SCGS 2012 Jamboree today. I am geared up and very excited to attend this year. Not only will I be seeing my genealogy friends again, but my daughter will be attending with me this year. It is her first time attending any genealogy conference and she is also excited for going. I even talked her into being a guest blogger with her opinions of the conference from a 14 year-olds perspective. We will see how she likes it.
If your on the fence about attending Jamboree this year, I highly recommend it as a great learning experience. There are wonderful, well known, speakers in the genealogy field presenting classes such as Lisa Alzo, Elyse Doerflinger, Jean Wilcox Hibben, and Thomas MacEntee just to name a few. There will also be an exhibitor’s hall with such noted companies as Legacy Family Tree, Inc., Ancestry.com and FamilySearch, again to just name a few. If that doesn’t get you into the door to the conference, you will be meeting fellow genealogy researchers, family historians, genealogists and yes, even me.
Now that you’ve decided to go, let me know so that we can meet. I love making new friends and meeting new people!
