Several days ago I posted on Facebook to genealogy friends regarding my doing some Q and A genealogy discussions using Google Hangouts. However; I realize that there are many other folks who read my blog postings; whom I am not connected with on Facebook. So…. for those that have already seem my post on Facebook; I apologize for what may seem like a double post regarding the subject.
I am seriously considering doing some Genealogy Q and A type sessions using Google Hangouts. These would likely include a small group of people who would like some suggestions and ideas on how they might get past a particular roadblock in the family tree. I would try to answer some questions and offer some suggestions; and; of course others in the Hangout might wish to offer some input as well. This certainly would not be limited to suggestions or ideas for getting past brick walls. Other genealogy related questions will be welcome as well.
Now….. I admit I have never really used Google Hangouts; so this will be new to me. But…. I think I will be able to figure it out. As I understand it; a Google Hangout only allows a maximum of 10 people to be able to share video and audio. However; a much larger number can still be in the hangout and share audio. Initially; I would be surprised if there were more than 10 people in a session anyway. But that is perfectly okay. I would still be glad to offer ideas, share suggestions, etc., with a group of 3 or 4. Doesn’t matter to me.
For those who would wish to be included in one of these hangout sessions; you must have a Google account to be included. If you have a gmail account; you already have a Google account.
So…. consider this post to be somewhat of a survey. I would like to know if there is interest in doing this. Please share your comments below. If this is something you would be interested in; please let me know.
