Wishful Wednesday - Conference Time AGAIN

Editor's note: Today's post was written by Sandra Gardner-Benward

Yes, it is the Southern California Jamboree in Burbank California - starting on Thusday through Sunday. A conference is well worth the time, money and energy. I try to go each year and each year it is just a little different and offer special items too.

This year they are offering a full day of DNA with the experts as part of the pre-conference activities. This time I am armed with my numbers (acutally they are my brothers numbers) and am really looking forward to this day of informaiton with the experts. I hope to acutally know what they are talking about and what 'my' numbers mean by the end of day.

I am packed and flying out of  the Sacramento International Airport. Get ready to live the conference with me. Denise is here with me, so you might hear from her too.  I love sharing with you my experiences and hopefully you will find some value for yourself.

I am listing several excellent opportunities for you to enjoy the Jamboree first hand. But you need to act now.,... registration is required whether it is free or pay-per-view.............

Don't forget to re-read a post from a couple of days ago that Denise posted about free streaming classes from the Jamboree. What a great opportunity for those that will not be able to make the Jamboree. 

AND now there is still another opportunity for those that cannot make the Jamboree to enjoy the special DNA day .......... these are live stream pay-per-view

The International Society of Genetic Genealogy (ISOGG) and the Southern California Genealogical Society announce that four sessions of the “Family History and DNA: Genetic Genealogy in 2013” conference will be live streamed on a pay-for-view basis and available for viewing by genetic genealogists around the world.
The cost of $30 per individual presentation includes the session’s.   Jamboree is also offering a special discount for those who purchase a Full-Day Pass at the discounted price of $100. Full-Day Pass holders will receive a digital download of the entire conference syllabus of 12 articles at no additional cost.”
All these sessions are on Thursday June 6......  pre-registration required

10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
Tim Janzen, MD
TH004 - "Mapping Your Chromosomes with Autosomal DNA"
This presentation will describe techniques of doing chromosome mapping and triangulation using autosomal DNA results from 23andMe's test and Family Tree DNA's Family Finder test.

1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Blaine T. Bettinger, Ph.D.
TH008 - "Using Third-Party Tools to Analyze Your Autosomal DNA Results"
Although DNA testing companies provide an analysis of test results, there are many third-party tools that allow test-takers to use those results to learn even more about their genomic heritage.
2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
CeCe Moore
TH010 - "Working with Autosomal DNA: Genealogical Case Studies"
atDNA holds endless potential for learning about your family history and what your ancestors may have passed on to
you.Practical methods and examples from the presenter's research will be reviewed.

TH014 - 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Alice M. Fairhurst and David F. Reynolds
"The Changing Y-DNA Haplotree and Its Impact"
Learn how and why Y-DNA trees can differ and how the ISOGG team determines the location of SNPs on the tree. Find out how the most cutting edge SNP discoveries are unraveling the mystery of human ancestry.

AGAIN, even the pay-per-view sessions are well worth the cost. What a great opportunity, but you need to pre-register first.

AND still another way to enjoy the conference and all it has to offer as far as the classes is to order the classes on a thumbdrive or DVD's  of video recordings and audio presentations.
The Conference Resource is offering the opportunity to preorder a thumb drive with all of the audio recorded sessions for just $186, which includes a $15 pre-conference discount. At Jamboree the price will be $199. The thumb drive will have around 115 recorded sessions.

For the best bargain, you can order the entire recorded session set, which includes nearly 35 DVDs of video recordings and about 115 audio presentations for $286. You'll see the speaker, see the visuals, and even see some of the audience. After the conference it will be $299.

NOTE: not all of the sessions will be included on the recordings. For example, the sessions that are video streamed will not be included in the Conference Resource set. Some speakers have requested that we not record their sessions, and of course we will respect their wishes
So here are some great opportunities for learning free & for pay for those that are not able to make the Jamboree.
See you in Burbank and online...............
