Alright. Enough talking about it! Time to do it. I have mentioned a couple of times that I would like to host some Google Hangout sessions intended for folks to be as questions and get suggestions regarding some of their genealogy roadblocks. In other words; participants can tell me about a specific roadblock in their research; I will try to offer ideas and suggestions as to some types of records; or some types of things they might want to search (or do) in order to try to break through their brick wall. Since I have not really had much experience myself with Google Hangouts; there may be some hiccups initially. But…. I am ready to give it a try. I know it is short notice; but I am going to host a Hangout at 8 pm Eastern Time Tomorrow evening (Monday, 20 Oct.). As I understand it; you need to have a Google + account (free and simple to create) to use Google Hangouts. With short notice; I don’t expect many to be able to participate. However; since this will be the first time; that might be a good thing. For those that don’t understand Hangouts; up to 10 people (I think 10) will be able to share video and audio. More can participate with audio; but only 10 will be able to share video. Of course I will be one of those 10 sharing video. Anyone who wishes to participate tomorrow evening email me (or message me on facebook) and let me know. I will email a link to everyone approximately 30 minutes prior to the Hangout session. Look forward to seeing and speaking with some of you tomorrow evening.
