FREE Family History Fair 5 May 2007
DearREADERS & LISTENERS,
This Saturday you'll have the unique opportunity to log in to a website (at no cost) to listen to and speak with the presenters as you view their graphic presentations relative to their assigned topics.
HOW? Download a small program that enables you to use the website and view the graphics the presenters send to the screen. Then turn on your speakers, log back into the website and use the code word mentioned below. If you have a microphone, you can ask questions at the end of each presentation.
Ol' Myrt here will be using her Logitec headset (earphones and mic) to do her presentation, which is titled "BLOGGING: Getting the word out." My goal is to provide practical, down-to-earth advice to family historians, with a focus on beginning and intermediate researcher challenges. Since BLOGS are a mainstream method for genealogists to communicate, I'll discuss:
BLOGGING: Getting the word out.
-- How does a blog work?
-- How to receive a blog
-- Quick-start blog set-up
-- Refining your blog’s template
-- More about FeedBlitz
You may attend any or all of the conference sessions. There is one 45-minute session per hour.
