Burbank Jamboree

Date: Mon, 15 Feb 2010 22:28:55 -0800
Subject: [CA-SCGS] We Can't Keep the Secret Any Longer...

?it?s time to reveal the name of the keynote speaker for Jamboree?s
Friday Night Banquet.

Chris Haley, actor, musician, genealogist, and nephew of Roots
author Alex Haley, will talk about how genealogy has changed and yet
remained the same over the years. His presentation, ?My Genealogy:
Now and Then? will include family photos, documents, music and
thoughts on Chris? dual African and Scottish heritage. The story of
his genetic discovery and reunion with relatives from the British
Isles was covered in innumerable news outlets and is featured on
Ancestry.com?s introductory DNA page.

You can be sure that it will be an entertaining, educational and
engaging presentation.

As an extra-special treat, banquet guests will have an opportunity
to win an autographed, first-edition copy of Roots.

Register for Jamboree, including the banquet, at the SCGS website.
Jamboree will be held June 11-13, 2010, at the Los Angeles Marriot
Burbank Hotel.
