Genealogy Jamboree Schedule Now Online

The Jamboree lecture schedule is now online at http://genealogyjamboree.blogspot.com

On the first morning (Friday, June 26, 2009) they will continue the tradition of offering several free sessions. This year, Tom Kemp will conduct Genealogy Librarians' Boot Camp. Last year's Beginning Genealogy session has been expanded into two sessions of three hours each. And the very successful Kids' Family History Camp will help to bring the youngest generation into the study of family history. I applaud the Jamboree for continuing to welcome folks into genealogy and the Jamboree through these free offerings. Awesome idea!

You'll hear more about all of these activities, as well as several other special events, in the coming weeks. (The schedule and speakers are subject to change.)

Jamboree organizers expect to have a very special announcement regarding the Friday Night Banquet speaker very soon. (Be sure and stay tuned to The Genealogy Gems News Blog for more on that)

The Jamboree website will be up in the next few days, and organizers will be announcing when registration will be available online. You can download the registration form from the Jamboree blog if you prefer to register by mail.
