26–28 June 2009
The 40th Annual Genealogy Jamboree, sponsored by the Southern California Genealogical Society, will be held 26–28 June 2009 at the Burbank Marriott Hotel and Convention Center in Burbank, California. The conference features over 100 lecture sessions by more than 55 speakers who Dick Eastman called "...a Who's Who in genealogy." Jamboree will have nearly 70 exhibitors, and special events, including the second Blogger Summit with several notable geneabloggers. Friday night's keynote address will be delivered by Dr. Tukufu Zuberi of PBS's History Detectives. Free sessions Friday morning include Librarians' Genealogy Boot Camp, two beginning genealogy sessions, and Kids' Family History Camp. A great value for the money, plus discounts for members and early registration.
