SNOWED IN? Join our hangouts today!

We're going to PRACTICE doing Hangouts on Air in "green room" (unrecorded) mode four times today! So this is your chance. Ya cannot do much else with activity in the US grinding to a halt due to unprecedented low temperatures and record snow falls. Schools and businesses are closed. Police advise folks to stay home off the streets for safety. In at least one state it is now illegal to be out on the roads. Things are tough, and folks are finding themselves at home with nothing much to do except huddle up to keep warm and keep the water pipes from freezing.

Cousin Russ and Ol' Myrt here are hosting 4 (count 'em FOUR!) "green room" (unrecorded) Hangouts on Air today. Here's the plan:

  • This is the link to the EVENTS PAGE of DearMYRTLE's Genealogy Community: https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/102461242403735457058/communities/104382659430904043232/events
  • You'll see the four different "Baby It's COLD outside" Hangouts on Air.
  • Click YES to add this to your personal Google Calendar or simply click on the title to comment. You will not be able to VIEW the Hangout on Air, since it is in "green room" (unrecorded) format. But you can JOIN the filmstrip panel as I will post the JOIN link in comments for the HOA.
  • These four "green room" (unrecorded) Hangouts on Air are specifically designed to help people get familiar with Hangouts on Air, adjusting their video camera and sound equipment.

So come on over. Ol' Myrt here is making hot apple cider and hot chocolate to take your winter blues away. It's easy and FUN! No pressure. Just "hanging out" with your genea-friends.

Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt :)
Your friend in genealogy.
