WHERE
Post COMMENTS before, during and after each Study Group Hangout on Air here:
http://bit.ly/MyrtsNext

We are using Google+ Hangouts on Air for this study group, just as we use for Mondays with Myrt. We open the "green room" 15 minutes early if you'd like to test out your microphone and webcam. Consider JOINing the panel when we "scramble" to mix up the conversation a bit.

HOW
For this Beginning Genealogy Study Group, it isn't necessary to JOIN "the filmstrip panel" to participate. Some people are shy about appearing there, especially when just starting out. However, do post your comments or questions as mentioned above.

So turn up those computer speakers, and head on over to VIEW the live sessions, post COMMENTS before, during and after each session here: http://bit.ly/MyrtsNext

ARCHIVED SESSIONS
If you miss a session, no worries! All Beginning Genealogy Study Group sessions will be archived in DearMYRTLE's YouTube Channel, as well as in DearMYRTLE's Genealogy Community on Google+.



Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt :)
