Have you thought about attending a genealogy conference, but found the idea a bit daunting? First-timers can feel thrown back into “junior high school mode”:
- Which classes should I attend?
- Where will I sit?
- What if I don’t know anybody?
Don’t let a little shyness stop you from going! With a little preparation you can be ready to hit the conference running.
In this video presented by George Morgan (The Genealogy Guys) for the Southern California Genealogical Society (the folks who put on the annual Jamboree in Burbank, CA) you’ll learn what to expect, how to prepare, and how to get the most out of your time once you are there.
