From nearby beautiful downtown Burbank, California, it's the day before the day before the Southern California Genealogical Society (SCGS) Jamboree 2011. Today, my husband Scott and I spent all afternoon at the SCGS Library. The night before, I made a list of the books to look at by cutting and pasting them from the SCGS Library online catalog. My focus was on Southern California (native I am), Nebraska and Ohio. Needless to say, it was an ambitious list. I only finished combing through four books, all about Highland County, Ohio. My target surnames were Brown and Clark but I also came across many VanPelts and Swearingens. Good finds.
As you can see, I was well-equipped with portable scanner, mobile hotspot, camera, computer and Root Cellar business cards. I also left a batch of flyers for Family History Day at the California State Archives. What did my husband do? He read an audio book about John Adams.
