[CA-SCGS] The SCGS Library Will Re-open on Tuesday, July 6, 2021.

SCGS Library Re-Opens on
Tuesday, July 6, 2021

We are so excited to open our doors and 
welcome back our members, non-members, 
family historians, and all genealogists into our library!

The days our library will be open  are as follows:
Tuesdays, Wednesdays, & Thursdays 
the first 2 Sundays of each month, 
the 3rd and 4th Saturdays of each month. 
The hours: 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. 

We may expand these hours and days later on in the year, 
depending on the needs of our members 
and the availability of our beloved volunteers
 who staff the library. 

Special thanks to all of our members, family historians, 
and genealogists who waited so patiently 
for the library to open again. 

Some of our interest groups and other programs will return to in-person meetings at the library, while others will remain online. All groups and programs will return to the library when the  County of Los Angeles gives us the green light to do so.

[CA--SCGS] A Special Thank You From SCGS Jamboree

The Jamboree Committee would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who contributed to the Genetic Genealogy, and Jamboree 2021 Virtual conferences. 

Thank you, Attendees! 
You are what makes the conference both exceptional and memorable. Without you, there wouldn't be a Jamboree. Whether you viewed us from near or far through the wonders of technology, Thank You!

Thank you, Speakers! 
For generously sharing your knowledge, research experiences and tips, your time, and your sense of humor. You continuously lead by example and inspire genealogists of all experience levels to learn more, expand our vision of what family history research is and should be, all the while reminding us to be open to all possibilities in life and in research. Speakers, Thank You!

Thank you, Exhibitors!
For showcasing the products and services that make research so rewarding, for preserving records and making them accessible online, and for the books that we just can't give up even in the digital age. For the societies that give us opportunities to learn, share and meet others who share our passion for family history. Exhibitors, Thank You!

Thank you, Sponsors!
For your generous support of Jamboree. We are very grateful for the support of all of our sponsors. Jamboree extends special thanks to Ancestry, our main sponsor, and to MyHeritage, for sponsoring Closed Captioning. 

Finally, and most importantly, thank you to all the Jamboree Volunteers!
It takes hundreds and hundreds of hours of volunteer time to produce Jamboree each year. Some volunteers work year-round to plan the events, and others work an hour or two before or at the conference. Every hour magically contributes to making Jamboree special for everyone.
