So, you've just about decided to take Ol' Myrt's advice and join Second Life to attend genealogy discussions in real time and mingle with family historians from all over the real world. Here are some of the upcoming events from two of the UGG Union of Genealogy Groups in Second Life members. Note in the screen shot below that Clarise Beaumont is speaking, as indicated by the light green pulsating icon above her head, which I have circled in red for clarification.
