The Southern California Genealogical Society is proud to announce a new program, the Jamboree Extension Series, that provides family history and genealogy educational webinar (web-based seminar) sessions for genealogists around the world.
The program will offer Jamboree-style seminars at no charge for up to 1000 attendees per session. The Jamboree Extension Series is offered as a service to the genealogical community as part of the Society's mission "to foster interest in family history and genealogy, preserve genealogical materials, and provide instruction in accepted and effective research techniques."
The original webcasts are available to all genealogists at no charge. As a benefit to SCGS members, the webinars will be archived on the SCGS members-only section of the website and can be viewed at any time. Archived sessions will be available approximately three days following the webinar. SCGS memberships
may be purchased online at the SCGS website.
Jamboree Extension Series presentations will be scheduled on the first Saturday and third Wednesday of each month. Saturday sessions will be held at 10am Pacific time / 1pm Eastern time; Wednesday sessions will be scheduled 6pm Pacific time / 9pm Eastern time.
The complete webinar schedule is posted on the SCGS website. Updates will be posted to the SCGS blog as new sessions are added.
