The Jamboree Extension Series allows genealogists from around the world to attend the types of sessions that will be offered at the 42nd Annual Southern California Genealogy Jamboree in Burbank, California, on June 10-12, 2011. The Jamboree Extension Series is offered as a service to the genealogical community.
Did you know that the over-55 crowd is the fastest growing group of Facebook users? Did you know that Twitter is not the domain of the much younger texting crowd but is used by an older, more savvy group of people? Did you ever wonder how and if these programs, along with others such as blogs and wikis, can be used to help genealogists? Wonder no more as we explore what makes up the oft-mystifying term “social networking” and how each program is currently being used by genealogists and family historians of all ages.
Our presenter, Thomas MacEntee, is a professional genealogist specializing in the use of technology and social media to improve genealogical research and as a means of interacting with others in the family history community. Utilizing over 25 years of experience in the information technology field, Thomas writes and lectures on the many ways in which blogs, Facebook and Twitter can be leveraged to add new dimensions to the genealogy experience. As the creator of GeneaBloggers.com, he has organized and engaged a community of over 1,400 bloggers to document their own journeys in the search for ancestors.
Jamboree Extension Series presentations will be scheduled on the first Saturday and third Wednesday of each month. Saturday sessions will be held at 10am Pacific time / 1pm Eastern time; Wednesday sessions will be scheduled 6pm Pacific time / 9pm Eastern time. Jamboree Extension Sessions will be archived and available to SCGS members approximately three days following the webinar. Membership information can be found at www.scgsgenealogy.com.
