Southern California Genealogical Society offers free live-streamed sessions

From Friday to Sunday, June 6 – 8, we have an incredible opportunity to watch 14 live streamed sessions at the Southern California Genealogical Society’s (SCGS) Jamboree. All will be available for free, but you must register. I “attended” most of the presentations last year and was not disappointed.

To register for a session, visit the SCGS website, click on the link for the desired session(s) and follow the directions. SCGS will email your confirmation.

This is the list of free sessions. Note that the times are provided in Pacific time.
