Did you ever want to learn more about your ancestors? Interested in genealogy? If so, you should come out and attend the 2014 Southern CA Genealogy Jamboree and Family History and DNA Conference! Brought to you by the Southern California Genealogical Society, this is their 45th annual event and this year, it will be held at the Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Airport Hotel in Burbank. The event will be from Friday, June 6th through Sunday, June 8th and online registration is now open. If you are interested in learning genealogy or just looking for something fun to do while staying in hotels around Burbank, then don’t miss the 45th annual jamboree!

At this year’s Jamboree, there will be an incredible 55 speakers talking about varied subjects that all relate to genealogy. There will even be over 60 vendors for you to look at and walk through such as Family Chartmasters, Legacy Family Tree, and the San Fernando Valley Genealogical Society. Fun events are scheduled for all guests such as a trip to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library on Thursday, June 5th, a library Research Morning Tour on Friday, June 6th, and Author Book Signings that will be held throughout the Jamboree.

They are proud to announce that after the success of last year’s event entitled, “Family History and DNA: Genetic Genealogy” they will be bringing it back for this year’s Jamboree! The Keynote speaker will be Maurice Gleeson and he will talk on “How DNA Will Change the Face of Irish Genealogy”. There will also be a panel discussion about “Peering into the Future of Genetic Genealogy”. It is advised to get your DNA tested before attending because your experience at the discussion can be much more fruitful if you already have your results.

The theme for this year is “Golden Memories: Discovering Your Family History”. As a result, there will be a focus on the world’s European ancestors. This includes class seminars and sessions all about German, Irish, English/UK, Scottish, Eastern European, Italian, Mennonite, Swedish and Russian culture. This year, there will even be classes on African American and Jewish cultures.
