4 June 2014
I am back from my long-planned trip to the other side of the pond and after issues with my electronic devices, they are now all back in working order. This comes just in the nick of time because in less than 10 (ten!) hours I will be at DNA Day, or as it is officially called “Family History and DNA - Genetic Genealogy in 2014” Day, which kicks off the 2014 Southern California Genealogy Jamboree. This first, full day of genetic genealogy is co-sponsored by the Southern California Genealogical Society (SCGS) and the International Society for Genetic Genealogy (ISOGG) and is devoted to educational classes in the field of genetic genealogy. I am so excited that I am worried that I won’t sleep and since I am staying with my almost-should-be-closer-than-close-family in my old hometown of Valencia, I will be jumping on the freeway at the crack of early, joining a few thousand fellow commuters, so I must say good night now. However, check in frequently over the next four days to get updates from my experiences at the Jamboree and updates in the field of genetic genealogy.
