Burbank Jamboree 2009: Call for papers

The Southern California Genealogical Society has just published its call for papers for the 40th edition of the Jamboree, which will take place June 12-14, 2009.

The venue is the same as this year: The Burbank Airport Marriott Hotel & Convention Center. All the construction problems experienced this year will be completed by then and the facility will be beautiful once again! The society expects to draw some 1,200 participants, speakers and exhibitors to this well-organized event.

A wide variety of presentations will be considered including websites and
electronic information sources, migration paths, use of records and
repositories, research methodology, skill building, cultural and ethnic
research, writing, publishing, family history, computers and technology,
society management, genetics and DNA research, source records, immigration,
migration and naturalization records, digital and brick-andmortar record
repositories, and professional topics. Topics are not limited to the
Southwestern US or California. Our ethnic focus will be the British Isles,
including Ireland, England, Wales, and Scotland.
Original topics are encouraged, and the program committee will consider proposals for panels, workshops and other ground-breaking presentations. Preference will be given to sponsored presentations and lectures not recently given at a regional conference. Digital presentations are strongly encouraged.
