What's a DearMYRTLE Workshop Webinar© ?

DearREADERS,
What's a DearMYRTLE Workshop Webinar© ? Real-time demos, very few PowerPoint screens. Small groups – no more than 100 attendees. Sound interesting?
  • After registering participants receive a confirmation email containing information about logging in to the webinar. Only the first 100 who click to enter are accepted.
  • Then 1 week, 1 day and 1 hour before the scheduled webinar, you'll receive a reminder email.
  • To join (log in to) the webinar, attendees click on the link in their confirmation or reminder emails.
  • Attendees' high-speed internet access will quickly download the Citrix GoToMeeting software interface for the DearMYRTLE Workshop Webinar©. Each webinar has a unique ID.
  • There is no cost to attend the webinar. 
  • Handouts may be available for a nominal fee from my lulu.com account, but due to the live nature of the demo, they are not usually planned.
  • Archived versions of a DearMYRTLE Workshop Webinar© may be available in a new members' only portion of DearMYRTLE.com. Details to follow.
  • Occasionally, an archived version of a DearMYRTLE Workshop Webinar© may be available for open viewing at DearMYRTLE.com

    PC-based attendees
    Required: Windows® 7, Vista, XP or 2003 Server

Ol' Myrt plans to host a DearMYRTLE Workshop Webinar© twice a month, until she leaves for Samford in June.

DearMYRTLE’s Ancestry.com Trees Workshop Webinar©
Live demo of why Myrt thinks beginning researchers with US roots benefit from uploading their GEDCOM file to Ancestry Trees. Includes an overview of GEDCOM file creation using RootsMagic and a discussion about privacy levels offered by Ancestry.com. Emphasis on attaching scanned images of original documents to each ancestor, but includes information about networking with other researchers. This is a great deal more effective than message boards.

DearMYRTLE’s Facebook Workshop Webinar©
Facebook has replaced Google as the busiest site on the web. Analysts say blogging is dead, in favor of Twitter and Facebook, at least for the younger set. Want to connect with family and friends using Facebook, but concerned about security issues? Myrt walks through Facebook settings, demonstrates FB groups and FB pages, wall postings, adding links, uploading photos, chat, instant messages and private messages.
