We are so excited to announce that the mobile app for the 2014 Southern California Genealogy Jamboree is now available for download!

The Jamboree mobile app is available for the following operating systems: iOS (iPad, iPad mini, iTouch, iPhone); Android; BlackBerry; Windows; in fact, all web-enabled phones.

Laptop and desktop users can also make use of the app. The app is truly valuable for everyone attending Jamboree.

Many improvements have been made since the first Jamboree app was introduced in 2011. The updated 2014 version, again developed by Core-Apps LLC, offers the following features designed to improve the Jamboree experience for attendees, exhibitors and speakers.

  • Preview all of the classes by reading the descriptions.
  • Browse day by day, or do a search by topic or experience level.
  • Download the dozens of syllabus articles available through the app and print them for use.
  • Look up your favorite speakers and review the sessions they are teaching.
  • Select your sessions and add them to your own personal schedule to keep organized.
  • Explore the exhibit hall from the comfort of your couch long before the doors open.
  • Do you have questions for speakers or exhibitors? Ask them in advance.

The App is valuable for exhibitors and speakers, too.

Members of the genealogical community can take advantage of the app.  We are issuing an invitation for members of our community to be listed as a "virtual exhibitor" in the Jamboree app at a nominal charge. For only $50, you can add a contact listing, logo and downloads for your book, society, professional genealogical service, or other business. For complete information, download the information brochure and contact jamboree@scgsgenealogy.com for further details.
