Google Hangouts Genealogy Q & A Session Monday, Oct. 20

20 Oct

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.

    If you have room and there’s time, add me to Hangouts. Even just listening I will probably learn something.  I’ve never heard of it, so no experience, but I’ll give it a try.  Just downloaded it.  Thanks,  Dan Clark.

    Hi, I would like to participate in your Google Hangout if you still have space available. Sounds interesting. Marcia Ford Hartford, Wisconsin (formerly of Redkey, Indiana)
