In this video clip the "Pitcairn Goodbye Song," penned by Pitcairn Islander Rosalind Amelia Young in the nineteenth century, was sung in Angwin, California by Pitcairn Islanders and their partners/spouses (left to right): David Brown (not shown), Melva Evans (not shown), Marie Christian Thomas (who also played the ukelele), Loron Hansen, Jacqui Christian, Leslie Jaques, OBE, and Margaret Young Hansen. Then the song was sung again, with a second verse, both by some of those in Angwin and by those in another group which had gathered together in the public hall on Pitcairn Island. This video clip contains a segment where the camcorder is panned around the Fireside Room, showing those in attendance in Angwin.
This singing at the conclusion of the first Q & A Skype video chat on August 20 was among the most popular features of Bounty-Pitcairn Conference 2012. The conference, moderated by Barbara Stein, was held at Pacific Union College in Angwin, California August 19-21, 2012.

BPC 2012 included fifteen engaging speakers. The conference was hosted by the Pitcairn Islands Study Center (www.pitcairnstudycenter.org) at Pacific Union College.
