Jamboree 2011: Family History Writers Conference

The Southern California Genealogical Society's Jamboree holds a special place in Tracing the Tribe's heart.

The first time we spoke at this annual event was at its family history writers breakfast several years ago. Our topic - "Creating Hope" - focused on how writing on family history for mainstream publications raises awareness and interest in readers. The presentation presented several Holocaust-related reunions and stories on other topics.

Tracing the Tribe will once again be speaking at Jamboree 2011 and also attending the second GENEii Family History Writers Conference from 8.30am-4.30pm (with an optional buffet lunch), on Thursday, June 9, while the main event begins on Friday and runs through Sunday.
Speakers for the Thursday program - which requires separate registration - include outstanding writers, genealogists and speakers:  John Colletta,  D. G. Fulford, Dawn Thurston, Biff and Nancy Barnes, and publishing panelists Lou Szucs, Lisa Also and Tom Underhill.

Register by April 30 to receive discounts (early-bird and SCGS members) for this special activity. Thursday registration: SCGS members, $100; others, $125. The optional buffet lunch: SCGS members, $35; others, $38.
