I am very excited for Jamboree 2016! This year I am taking the plunge and registering not only for the 3 -day conference but also the DNA day that’s the Thursday before. The past 6 months have been a crossroads for me. I’m at a place where my research is slowing. However, it not that there is no new information to research, but I’m in a place of now having to go to Mexico to conduct research. The current state of Zacatecas, the state my family is from, is a dangerous one for tourists right now. So for the moment, I will not be traveling to Mexico. What do I do then? Well I decided to further my education and attend DNA day at Jamboree 2016, put on by the Southern California Genealogical Society.
There are a few beginning lectures that I can take and I’m excited. One lecture that sounds interesting is “Developing a DNA Testing Plan.” This lecture is extremely exciting to me and I am hoping to get a good guideline on who to test and when to test them. I am very excited to learn about DNA and I hope that I get a good, solid base for the next phase of my genealogical research.
Are you new to DNA or to SCGS Jamboree 2016? Let me know if you would like to meet up and discuss DNA and the lectures we attended. I always like making new genealogy friends and can do the scheduling of the meet-up. Comment and let me know!
