“Over the course of the millennia, all these ancestors in your tree, generation upon generation, have come down to this moment in time—to give birth to you. There has never been, nor will ever be, another like you. You have been given a tremendous responsibility. You carry the hopes and dreams of all those who have gone before. Hopes and dreams for a better world. What will you do with your time on this Earth? How will you contribute to the ongoing story of humankind?” ~ Laurence Overmire

Souther California Jamboree

Posted by Tonya Keitt Kalule

The excitement is building.  I am actually going to the first Genealogy event with Southern California Genealogy Society and Ancestry.com.  All of the genealogy research that I have done this far was done with no training and no assistance. Even though a great deal has been accomplished I realize that I have just scratched the surface.  I have decided that it was time to join others that share this passion, so I can take my research to the next level.
I have hit a great deal of brick walls in my research and  am at a place where many would hire a professional genealogist, but this is  and has been a labor of love job  I want to trace these steps on my own.
 Of course I will seek help from various librarians and others who has more experience than I do to assist in my research.  I will pick the brains and hearts of fellow genealogist as I am member of Southern California Genealogy Society and various online communities. 

Jamboree is help from Friday to Sunday, but the Family History Writers Conference is  taking place the day before and it is going to be pretty intense, but I am hoping it will help me see these ancestors as people, as characters, as family; instead of data on a page in a time unfamiliar to me.
