GenLaw Study Group - 6 Feb 2015

DearREADERS,
We've less than 24 hours before the GenLaw Study Group panel reconvenes for our discussion of Chapter 3, Genealogy and the Law.[1] Ol' Myrt here trusts all participants have completed their homework in advance of the Hangout on Air. This session is our last before the FGS/RootsTech conference break next week.

SURE, you can VIEW this study group session here, but...



INSTEAD you'll want to VIEW and COMMENT over in DearMYRTLE's Genealogy Community on Google+ located here: http://bit.ly/MyrtsNext
