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.”
