Southern California Genealogical Society’s Annual Jamboree conference is this week! I am so excited and I absolutely cannot wait to see everyone. This year’s conference looks amazing and I want to share some of the classes that I plan on attending each day.
Of course, the plan could change as my plans at conferences often do. I might decide to wander around the exhibit hall or just chat with some people. This is a conference where I get to connect with old friends and make some new ones.
Here are the classes I plan on watching on Friday:
- The Jones Jinx: Tracing Common Surnames by Dr. Thomas Jones at 2:30 in Pavillion 1. With all of my Rogers, Franks, and Morris lines – I need this class! Plus, it is the amazing Tom Jones doing the class – ya really can’t go wrong!
- Methods for Identifying the German Origins of American Immigrants by Michael D. Lacopo at 2:30 in Academy 3. This one is at the same time as the Jones one so I’m not sure if I will make it…. but with all my German ancestors, I really sure. Plus, Michael is a great speaker!
- Debunking Misleading Records by Dr. Thomas Jones at 5:30 in Pavillion 2. I always like to take analysis classes and this definitely falls into the category.
What classes are you planning on taking on Friday?
