Enjoy the Southern California Genealogy Jamboree from Home!

RootsMagic is pleased to be a sponsor of the 42nd Annual Southern California Genealogy Jamboree to be held June 10-12, 2011 in the Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Airport Hotel, 2500 Hollywood Way, Burbank, California.

If you live in the area, be sure to come by and see us in the exhibit hall or attend one of our classes taught by the RootsMagician himself, Bruce Buzbee.

But if you don’t live near by, we wanted to bring the experience of the Jamboree to you!  Through a special sponsorship provided by RootsMagic, several Jamboree sessions will be available at no cost to genealogists and family historians around the globe.  We’ve had a tremendous response to our own free online classes (webinars) and saw the opportunity to use similar technology to bring the Jamboree experience to people around the world.  This means that you can enjoy presentations from some of the top speakers in the genealogical community for free, right from the comfort of your own home!

Watch Online for Free

All live-streaming sessions will be held on Saturday, June 11, 2011.  They include the following: (Click on the link to read more and to register for the session)

We hope to see you there or online!
