ANNOUNCING: GenTools Study Group - 2 Dec 2015

YAY! Our oft-requested and long-awaited GenTools Study Group begins Wednesday. Somehow we managed to squeeze in 9 sessions before RootsTech 2016. We will be discussing software, websites, devices and "things" to help genealogists "do their thing" as accurately and efficiently as possible. We'll probably have some follow-on discussions based on our visits with innovators while at that annual conference.

We begin our *live* sessions Wednesdays at:

Noon Eastern US (New York)
11am Central US (Chicago)
10am Mountain US (Denver, Salt Lake City)
9am Pacific US (Los Angeles)

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 with new panelists
