Although I live in Tucson now, I have many years of fun memories attending the Southern California Genealogy Jamboree. Back in the 1980s, it was held in the Pasadena Center and parking was always an issue. If I didn’t get there early, parking was likely to be blocks away.
It’s been quite a while since I’ve attended Jamboree. I had it on my bucket list last year, but we ended up meeting up with some friends from Georgia for an Alaskan cruise. Not that I’m complaining about Alaska, but the cruise was the same week at Jamboree and our friends work, so could only sail at that time.
This year, we have nothing planned in early June except for me attending Jamboree. I am excited, as it has grown even bigger since my last visit, and has outgrown its previous venue. It’s now held in Burbank at the Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Airport Hotel.
June 2 – Day 1, Genetic Genealogy 2016, is dedicated to The Future of the Past and can be a stand-alone day.
June 3-5 – Days 2-4, three days of sessions, exhibits and additional fee-based workshops.
2016 is turning out to be a fantastic year for genealogy – first, RootsTech 2016 and now my first return to Jamboree in many years!
