The Southern California Genealogical Society (SCGS) just completed another very successful Jamboree in Burbank, California, this month.
Over 1,700 genealogists jammed the genealogy classes, presentations and the exhibit hall for the past four days.
Our own in-house genealogist, Tom Kemp, spoke at three sessions during the SCGS Jamboree. His Friday Genealogy Jamboree talk (“Newspapers: Finding the Details about Your Family”) was so popular that a large crowd wanting to get into the two-room lecture hall had to be turned away. Seeing this large interest in Tom’s talk, the SCGS conference organizers then arranged for an additional session and he repeated the program on Sunday afternoon.
On Saturday he gave an early morning pep talk: “GenealogyBank Quick Tips.”

If you can’t be at this year’s SCGS Genealogy Jamboree in person but you have a family history question you’d like to ask, leave your question in the comments section and I’ll respond to you here on the blog and incorporate your question into our session.
For those of you who will be attending the genealogy conference this year, we look forward to seeing you there!
