2011 SCGS Jamboree - Day 1

Once again I'm attending the annual Southern California Genealogical Society Jamboree held in beautiful Burbank, California.  The weather is wonderful, not too hot or cold.  We're experiencing our "June Gloom."  I drove in very early this morning so I could get a parking spot in the hotel/conference lot, and I think I got the last one. 

This morning I attended with a friend from my local society several FREE sessions.  This first was presented by George Morgan of "The Genealogy Guys" podcast.  His lecture was "The Shape of the 21st Century Genealogical Society." WeI'll be taking his information back to our society.

The 2nd session was by Cath Madden Trindle titled "But, it's My Family" about copyright laws.  I never understood anything about copyright laws so her talk was very informative.

The 3rd session was by Jana Sloan Broglin "Program, Program, Git Yer Program!  Home runs for your society."  I took away so much helpful information from her that I'm revamping how I send our society's press releases out.

Tonight was the Banquet held in the convention center.  Tony Burroughs talk tonight was "You'z Ain't from 'Round Here, Is Ya?" was hilarious.  He's an excellent speaker.

I'm looking forward to tomorrow and checking out the vendors in the Exhibit Hall and stroll down the (High-Tech) hallway to the Tech Zone and use the new Jamboree App I downloaded to my phone.
