and the

The Southern California Genealogical Society announces its Call for Presentations for the 46th Annual Southern California Genealogy Jamboree, to be held Friday through Sunday, June 5 through 7, 2015, at the Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Airport Hotel, Burbank, California. The Pre-Conference Day, Thursday, June 4, 2015, will include a full day of DNA presentations and in-depth Workshops. 

This Call for Presentations also includes the 2015 Jamboree Extension Series webinar program. This webinar program offers two 90-minute GoToWebinar sessions per month (the first Saturday and the third Wednesday) that are viewed by an international audience of genealogists and family historians.

The theme for the 2015 Jamboree is Genealogy FANfare! which celebrates the use of the friends, associates and neighbors (FANs) of our elusive ancestors in order to aid in our research. We look forward to receiving proposals for lectures and workshops on a variety of topics for an audience skill level ranging from newbie to advanced, including young people. We will work with speakers who have conflicting commitments so that they may participate in Jamboree. 

Submissions will be accepted only through the online Speaker Portal between Wednesday, August 27, and Wednesday, October 1, 2014. 

Selected speakers will be notified by November 15, 2014. 

Further details are available in the Call for Presentations and it is suggested that you download the Submission Guidelines to assist in your preparation.
