Can you help us for 15-20 minutes any time during the hour? I'd like to talk about breakthroughs you've experienced using indexed records at FamilySearch.

We will also do follow up during Mondays with Myrt, a special Tuesday hangout, our Scotland Study Group and a special Thursday Hangout, all starting at noon Eastern, 11am Central, 10am Mountain, 9am Pacific.

Happy family tree climbing!
