Jamboree 2017: Societies - Do You Want to Swap?

Is Jamboree Coming to Your Area? 
Societies: Do You Want to Swap "Stuff"?


Jamboree is hitting the road and traveling the countryside, telling one and all about the upcoming fun at Jamboree. So far, we have been in Salt Lake City for RootsTech, Whittier for WAGS, and the Queen Mary ScotsFest in Long Beach and have plans to visit Orange County at the Genealogy BASH, Discover Your Roots, and other local meetings and events.


In addition to the in-person appearances, we will be sending material for the registration bags and/or freebie table to other genealogy events near and far. 


If you would like one of our ambassadors to visit, please send us a note at jamboree@scgsgenealogy.com and we'll see what we can do to get someone there. 


If you are hosting a full-day seminar or multi-day conference and would like to have SCGS information available for your participants please send us a message at scgspackandship@gmail.com with the following information:


1. Number of copies you need


2. What you would like:

           Webinar flyers
           All of the above

3. The shipping address


4. The date these need to be in your hands.
