Jamboree - App Version 2013

In 2011, Jamboree made genealogy conference history when it introduced the first mobile app for a family history conference. Since then, NGS and RootsTech followed suit and also used Core-Apps, the vendor that has worked with Jamboree since the very beginning.

It's a source of pride that we started the practice of conference apps even before iPads and other tablets were widely used. We have watched the explosive growth of smartphones and tablets and are excited that so many more conference attendees will be able to use the 2013 Jamboree App.

The app is available for iPhone, iPad, Android, BlackBerry, and any other smartphone that has web-enabled browser capability.

In addition to keeping the attendees informed, the Jamboree App also provides genealogy-related businesses and organizations an opportunity to reach an eager audience. Genealogists from around the globe are able to access information contained on the Jamboree app.

Businesses are invited to take advantage of the exposure to help publicize your business for a nominal fee.

* Onsite exhibitors and speakers receive a free "green" listing (contact information, your logo, and downloadable marketing documents.) Core-Apps will be in touch with you directly to provide you with a portal where you can upload your logo and PDF materials.

* If you can't attend Jamboree in person, our "Virtual Exhibitor" program provides the opportunity to purchase a green listing for just $50.

* Professional genealogists - post your resume, specialties, examples of your reports, or other marketing information online.

* Authors - link to online purchase for your book

* Societies and libraries - post your application forms, link to your online catalog, publications for sale, or research team contact information.

* Other types of advertising are available for purchase, including banner ad / landing page (a graphic image with your name rotates with all other advertisers. Click on the graphic and you are taken to a full-screen image with a special offer, a larger logo, etc.,; multimedia, including videos or advertising spots; and text alerts (limited to three per day for all advertisers). Costs for all of these packages can be found on the Pricing Sheet.

About the Southern California Genealogy Jamboree

The 44th Annual Southern California Genealogy Jamboree will be held at the Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Airport Hotel on Friday through Sunday, June 7th to 9th, 2013. A pre-event, "Family History and DNA: Genetic Genealogy in 2013" will be held on Thursday, June 6.

Jamboree is one of the most popular genealogical events in the United States. The conference features nearly 150 lecture classes; 70+ commercial vendors, societies and heritage groups and other organizations in the exhibit floor; and several special events and opportunities to socialize and relax. Free sessions will be held for beginning genealogists, genealogical society leaders, and a special free three-hour session on the National Archives, conducted by John Colletta, PhD, FUGA. John kindly stepped in when the team from NARA-Riverside was hit by the sequestration.

Jamboree is produced by the Southern California Genealogical Society, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is managed wholly by volunteer members. The Society operates a 40,000 volume genealogical library at 417 Irving Drive in Burbank. More information can be found at www.scgsgenealogy.com
