SCGS Jamboree 2012 - Saturday

At 8:30 Elyse Doerflinger gave a great presentation on organizing digital Stuff.  If you don't know her, she's dynamic, knowledgeable and young.  I'm sure that the attendees in the almost full room were very glad they found at seat in this 8:30 session.  Thank you Elyse. 

I had some good sessions and one I wish I had skipped, even though the room was full.  I know that sometimes timing of a presentation gets off, but I really feel that all of us deserved more than a 30 minute presentation in an hour time period. 

I feel my mind is overloaded.  I'm having trouble remembering the classes I took today, much less the past two days.  But I have notes and I bought some DVDs and CDs of many presentations that I was unable to attend.  It's going to take me weeks, I'm afraid, to really analyze and organize what I have heard/learned. 

If you haven't been to Jamboree, think about next year.  For all of us who live in the west, this is the premier genealogy conference.  It's close, across from the Burbank (Bob Hope) airport; it's reasonably priced; it's convenient (the hotel is next to the convention center); there are restaurant options with a block walking distance.  AND the SCGS volunteers put on a great, well-planned, well-organized conference that is FUN!!!!!!!
