We Want YOU!

Have you submitted for the Southern California Genealogical Society 46th Annual Southern California Genealogy Jamboree, to be held Friday through Sunday, June 5 - 7, 2015 at the Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Airport Hotel, Burbank, California? The Genetic Genealogy: DNA Plus! on 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 sessions per month (the first Saturday and the third Wednesday) to an international audience.

The 2015 Southern California Genealogy Jamboree theme is Genealogy FANfare! celebrating 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.

Presentations will be accepted through the online portal by October 10, 2014. If you have previously submitted less than 6 presentations and wish to submit others, please do so! Get started now to be considered! All other dates remain the same. 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.

We look forward to your continued participation.
