From the Genealogy Blogger Summit at Jamboree

I haven’t had a spare moment at Jamboree, but I wanted to post this photo taken at the Genealogy Blogger Summit.

SOURCE: Some of the Genealogy Bloggers at Jamboree (Burbank, Los Angeles Co., California). Photographed by Linda Seaver 28 Jun 2008.

Linda Seaver was kind enough to take photos of this group of genealogy bloggers including: seated, from left: Kathryn Doyle, Dick Eastman, George Morgan, Steve Danko; standing, from left: Leland Meitzler, Schelly Talalay Dardashti, Randy Seaver, Craig Manson, and Elizabeth O’Neal. Other genelaogy bloggers were in attendance but, unfortunately, weren’t present for this photo.

The Genealogy Blogger Summit was great fun with Leland Meitzler hosting bloggers Megan Smolenyak Smolenyak, George Morgan, Steve Danko, Schelly Talalay Dardashti, and Randy Seaver. Leland skillfully kept the discussion moving for over an hour and a half and then opened the discussion to questions from the audience.

As you may have already heard, audience member (and author of Little Bytes of Life) Elizabeth O’Neal stole the show by moblogging from her cell phone and posting the first picture from the summit, LIVE!

Thanks to Paula Hinkel of the Southern California Genealogical Society for organizing this great event.

  1. Bummed that I missed it. It seemed as though anyone and everyone had an event going that weekend — a group I volunteer for had its end-of-season special event on Sunday, so if I were to go, it’d be on Saturday, and what with everything else, the only presentation I’d attend is the blogger one. $40 + gas for 2hours of socializing. (I did go to a blogger meetup, tho. It was for people in the local area, and it was held quite close to my house, so I could show up for a while and leave again to go home and scan some photos (which you can see in my carnival entry) before heading out to a concert that night. Far too whirlwind, and no matter what all I did, I was pouting about the things I didn’t do.
