We apologize for any inconvenience, but our website provider will be performing network maintenance starting at 10:30pm PST on February 8, 2017. The maintenance window is planned to last about four hours, and this website may be down for about 45 minutes somewhere during that window.

Jamboree Extension Series Webinars

Posted Wednesday, December 30, 2015 by Brad Spear / Updated Wednesday, December 30, 2015 by Brad Spear

The Southern California Genealogical Society (SCGS) has recently announced the 2016 schedule of the free Jamboree Extension Series webinar. The series begins this Saturday (2 January 2016) and continues with two lectures every month (except for June and July, which only have one lecture each).

For more information and instructions on registering go to the seminar list page. The initial broadcasts are free to the public, but you must be registered to participate. On the other hand, archives of the programs are available only to SCGS members.

Please note that SCGS and SBCGS (South Bay Cities Genealogical Society) are not affiliated and this is not a paid spot.

Welcome to Our New Website

Posted Monday, July 07, 2014 by Brad Spear / Updated Monday, July 07, 2014 by Brad Spear

You should be able to find almost everything on this site that you found on our old site and much more. Missing are the picture gallery of cemetery markers as these are now all on Find-a-Grave, and perhaps some old meeting information that is no longer relevant (but even some of that may find its way back for those interested in the history of SBCGS).

If you think something else is missing, please let me know, since the site is still in development and may be a little rough in places.

As we continue to grow this website, we intend to add more information and make it easier to access. We also want to hear from our members who want to add their own voice. Check out our blog for an easy way to get started.

Although the aim of this site is to promote our group's mandate of providing genealogical education and research to all who ask, we will also soon support a membership-only feature, providing additional benefits, such as archive copies of The Beacon, and lecture notes from many of our speakers. We expect to add more as time goes on.
