Find My Ancestor Blog

SCGS2011 – First Evening

Well I got into LAX about 4:30 yesterday afternoon and by the time I got on the shuttle and to the Marriott in Burbank it was about 7:00. Even though it took 2 1/2 hours to get from the airport to the conference on the shuttle, the cheaper flight and extra time in the car were well worth it! The Southern California Genealogical Society Jamboree is such an amazing conference and great opportunity to network with other genealogists. Last year was my first time coming to Jamboree and by the time I left last year I said that I would definitely be coming back for this year. Upon arriving the first two Geneabloggers I saw were Daniel Horowitz from My Heritage and Schelly Talalay Dardashti from Tracing the Tribe. I immediately went to the blogging area where everyone hung out last year and saw Gini from Ginisology, along with her husband Steve and granddaughter Emma. They were sitting with Sheryl from Heritage Happens and Angela from Leaves of Heritage. I had not met Angela before, like I said earlier, this is  a perfect opportunity to meet new genealogists and fellow bloggers. We visited in the lobby for a while and saw other bloggers come and go. Elyse from Elyse's Genealogy Blog came along, Kathryn Doyle from the California Genealogical Society, footnoteMaven, and I saw Leland Meitzler from Genealogy Blog and the Genealogy Guys pass by as well. I look forward to today meeting all the other Geneabloggers and attending some great classes. This morning I am also hosting a round table discussion on Mac Genealogy. If any of you are going to be here at Jamboree and have a Mac, or would like to learn more about Mac computers and how there are amazing applications available to help you do your genealogy, come on out to the tent and join us!
