    Most Popular SCGS Jamboree Articles: Food and Fun

    In the spirit of Amy Coffin's Fun with Search Terms, I thought it might be fun to check out what Jamboree posts received the most hits here at The Family Curator. With thanks to Amy Coffin's monthly column at the We Tree Genealogy Blog, here are the top three Jamboree articles over the last month:

    1. Test Your Geneablogger Knowledge with the Evernote Peek Jamboree Idol Quiz (with photos!)

    This was a fun little project I worked up after the Jamboree. It is basically an Evernote notebook with notes that display as a kind of flashcard on the iPad2. Read more about it and give it a try. If you don't have the Smart Cover iPad, you can still read the quiz questions and view the photos as an Evernote file.

    2. Suzanne Freeman Grant

    The popularity of this post just shows that genealogists are pretty nice folks who like the idea of promoting the future of genealogy. Or, they have an insatiable curiosity to discover the story behind a name.

    3. Jamboree Travel Tips : LA Fast Food Tour 2011

    Anyone who has been to Jamboree knows that FOOD is always a big hit with genealogists and bloggers. I am so sorry that we missed my two absolute favorites on our pre-Jamboree Hollywood tour. We went to Phillippe's for french dip sandwiches and Olvera Street for a pajama party pinata and taquitos. Donna Pointkouski did not get to sample street tacos from a real L.A. taco truck, and in fact, we didn't hit any of the three places I featured. Maybe next year!

    Conclusion -- Fun, Future and Food. All add up to a great conference. Thanks for stopping by.
