Southern California Genealogy Jamboree will be offering FREE Lectures

Southern California Genealogy Jamboree will be held from June 6th to the 8th, 2014 and there is going to be 14 streamed sessions over three days, and these sessions will be FREE! Like they say "All Class. No Travel"

The cost of doing this is partially underwritten by Diamond Sponsor, but they will be free to people like myself who don’t go to the conference. Many sessions will be available in the SCGS webinar archive for viewing by members of the SCGS. 

Here are the sessions -

· Judy G. Russell JD, CG, CGL - "Dowered or Bound Out: Records of Widows and Orphans"
