JOINing or VIEWing tonight's Hangout On Air

DearREADERS,
You may have noticed there is another one of those Google Hangout on Air events scheduled for tonight titled Evidentia Follow Up. Unlike the GoToWebinar platform, you won't receive a personal email message reminding you to come to the Hangout On Air. What follows are basic guidelines you may print out for attending any DearMYRTLE Workshop© Hangout On Air.


ADVICE FOR JOINers and VIEWers
of a DearMYRTLE Workshop© Hangout On Air


HOW TO JOIN A HANGOUT ON AIR
The exact link cannot be shown until the Hangout on Air is created. The first ten people who JOIN the Hangout On Air will have voice, video, typed comment and screen share capabilities. Some panelists may receive private invitations in the moments before the link to the Hangout On Air will be distributed.

Potential JOINers must standby at DearMYRTLE's Genealogy Community on Google+ located here: 
https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/104382659430904043232
This is where the link to the Hangout On Air will be distributed.

If you attempt to JOIN the Hangout On Air and receive the notice that the Hangout On Air is full, then go to the VIEW option listed below.

HOW TO VIEW THE HANGOUT ON AIR LIVE
You may view the Hangout On Air live on DearMYRTLE's YouTube Channel located here: http://www.youtube.com/user/DearMYRTLE
The Hangout will not start appearing here until I press the record button at the top of the hour. It may take a minute for the video stream to kick in. VIEWers have are simply watching the live event, and do not have the ability to transmit their own video or audio. I've heard there is a FEED button to click at the appointed hour for the live broadcast to show up on your screen.

HERE'S HOW VIEWers CAN POST COMMENTS
During the live broadcast of this Hangout On Air VIEWers may post comments in the DearMYRTLE's Genealogy Community on Google+ using a different tab or window on your web browser, so as not to interrupt the VIEW. Again, DearMYRTLE's Genealogy Community on Google + is located here: 
https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/104382659430904043232

IF YOU MISS THE LIVE HANGOUT ON AIR OR WANT TO REVIEW IT LATER
The archived version of a Google Hangout On Air appears automatically, thanks to Google technology, usually within 30 minutes of the end of the recorded session. You will find it on DearMYRTLE's YouTube Channel:  http://www.youtube.com/user/DearMYRTLE

NOT TO WORRY
Ol' Myrt here won't fully convert from the GoToWebinar platform to the Hangout on Air broadcasts until 1 March 2013. Just check the Calendar www.GeneaWebinars.com for a complete listing of events on both platforms. I've planned a variety of webinars and hangouts during the month of February to help you learn more about the technologies that will "get the job done".

Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt     :)
