Know a young person who’s gung-ho about genealogy? Genealogy writer Denise Levenick is sponsoring a $500 grant to send a young genealogist (age 18 to 25 as of July 1) to the 2011 Southern California Genealogical Society Jamboree in Burbank, Calif. June 10-12.
The Suzanne Winsor Freeman Memorial Student Genealogy Grant honors Levenicks late mom, who worked with youth organizations and enjoyed attending last years Jamboree.
