Wearing My DAR Registrar Hat

Last Wednesday I appeared on Dear Myrtle's Wacky Wednesday show.  That show focused on reviewing the DAR application of True Lewis.

Marian Koalski and I had been working with True for a month before the show helping her gather documentation for her application.

I think the show turned out well and provides many tips on the application process.

That's Right - I'm Going to Jamboree!

It's that time of year again - time for the Southern California Genealogical Society's Jamboree.  I missed going for the last couple of years for one reason or another.  But not this year.  I registered online, booked my flight and in 3 weeks I am leaving on a jet plane.

I even became a member of their society - first time ever!  The difference in total cost of registration with a membership was only $10 more than if I didn't become a member.  Plus I have a year membership to a great society who has oodles of benefits.

I have circled several sessions that peaked my interest and signed up as a volunteer to sit at the DAR booth and the California State Genealogical Alliance Booth.

I have promised to TRY and behave myself, but we all know how that will probably go.  

There is still time to register but you may have to do it at the door.  If you still need convincing, here are a few photos from past Jamborees that are sure to change your mind!
