Will You Be At Jamboree?

Southern California Genealogical Society Jamboree

First, in case you haven’t heard, the Southern California Genealogical Society will be holding its 41st Annual Jamboree in Burbank, California from Friday June, 11 through Sunday, June 13, 2010.  The hashtag used on Twitter for Jamboree is #scgs10.

Second, as in past years, many members of GeneaBloggers attend this genealogy conference.  Last year there were more than 35 bloggers at Jamboree attending not only the education sessions and workshops, but also gathering for social events.  Jamboree is a great opportunity to get to know your blogging colleagues up close and personal – in 3D instead of virtually!

So now your help is needed.  In order for GeneaBloggers to plan social events and to put together a “proper welcome,” we need a headcount.  We’d like to know how many bloggers plan on attending Jamboree.

In order to track who will attend, please visit our brand new Meetup site for GeneaBloggers.   You will need to sign up and enter your name and blog URL.  By doing so, not only can we keep you up-to-date on upcoming Jamboree events, but GeneaBloggers will also be listing many different genealogy conferences and expos where GeneaBloggers members meet.

About Thomas MacEntee

What happens when a “tech guy” with a love for history gets laid off during The Great Recession of 2008? You get Thomas MacEntee, a genealogy professional who’s also a blogger, educator, author, social media connector, online community builder and more. Thomas was laid off after a 25-year career in the information technology field, so he started his own genealogy-related business called High Definition Genealogy. He also created an online community of over 3,000 family history bloggers known as GeneaBloggers. His most recent endeavor, Hack Genealogy, is an attempt to “re-purpose today’s technology for tomorrow’s genealogy.” Thomas describes himself as a lifelong learner with a background in a multitude of topics who has finally figured out what he does best: teach, inspire, instigate, and serve as a curator and go-to-guy for concept nurturing and inspiration. Thomas is a big believer in success, and that we all succeed when we help each other find success.
