    Countdown to the Mother-Daughter Event of the Season, SCGS Jamboree 2010

    Mom and I won't be wearing our matching party dresses (or, will we?) but we are getting pretty excited for the 2010 Southern California Genealogical Society Jamboree to be held in Burbank June 11-13. I know we aren't the only mother-daughter team who will be attending, but how many mother-daughter bloggers will be there?

    This will be our third year attending Jamboree together, and by now we have our routine pretty well figured out. Mom arrives from Arizona with plenty of time to recover from airport fatigue, and enough energy to help assemble the Blogger Welcome Bags.

    Mom used to be the unofficial neighborhood "Welcome Wagon Lady" and is a great partner for any kind of hospitality project.  This year, GeneaBloggers is sponsoring the Blogger Welcome Bags, and they will be filled to the brim with product samples and other goodies. Vendors have generously responded to our invitation to participate in the project, sending all kinds of terrific genealogy items. We've been plotting with Thomas MacEntee (GeneaBloggers), Joan Miller (Luxegen), and Amy Coffin (WeTree) to put together a real Southern California Welcome for bloggers attending the event.

    I can't say too much yet, but one gift will be a generous half-off coupon from Generation Maps for any chart printed through their new FamilyChArtist program. Bloggers will want to come prepared to take advantage of this offer by designing and saving a chart ahead of time at the FamilyChArtist website, and have it ready to print at Jamboree.

    In addition, the Blogger Bags will feature a mini-directory of bloggers attending the event so you can update social networking addresses and stay in touch during the conference. If you are a member of GeneaBloggers and plan to attend the 2010 Jamboree, and have not already done so, please take time to

    • Submit your information for the mini-directory of all GeneaBloggers members in attendance.  It will list names, email addresses, cell phone numbers, Twitter IDs etc.  This will make it easy to locate each other and to schedule meals, coffee breaks etc.  Email with this info if you haven’t done so already.
    • Check the GeneaBloggers Blog for any late-breaking news or announcements.

    Look for Mom and me at the Jamboree and be sure to stop us and say "Hi." We have a little something for all readers of The Family Curator, and we look forward to meeting you. (P.S. That's us in the striped dresses with my little sister in the front.)

    Look forward to seeing you at the Jamboree again this year. We (April and I) met you last year on Saturday night I believe it was. We were the two sitting outside eating our subway dinner. You and the footnote maven joined our table. This year I will be bringing my mother too. Hope to see you this weekend.

    Hi Sheila. Of course we remember you and April and our nice conversation. It will be great to meet another mother-daughter duo. I hope we can meet your mom too this year and will look out for you!
