Strategies for Saving Public Meeting Videos on YouTube



DearREADERS,
Attendees of tonight's WACKY Wednesday observed how their society may archive public recordings of Zoom Webinar and Zoom Meetings using YouTube's free space.

While the recording is still being rendered, I do have the link to the checklist we created during the show. You'll find it here: https://tinyurl.com/4rkamsdy


YES, I will update this blog post to include the recording as soon as it is rendered by Zoom, and then uploaded to YouTube.  
[Video to be added shortly.]

SELECTED CHAT MESSAGES
00:35:37 Melanie Hinds: I am 100% Serbian.
00:39:55 Cousin Russ: http://lipnica-lisa.blogspot.com/
00:50:11 Frank Jatzek: Here in Germany I only saw distances from a residence to the church up to 10 Kilometers this is way further in Serbia.
00:53:03 Marlis Humphrey: Father Ivan, you talk about difference in availability of books and record keeping in north vs. in Serbia. My family is Orthodox Serbs that lived in Croatia. Gospic-Lika area. Will their record keeping be more like the north situation or more like Serbia?
00:53:56 Melanie Hinds: @Marlis - my mother's family is also from Lika. How interesting!!
00:55:30 Marlis Humphrey: Melanie - which towns and surnames? Maybe we are cousins?
00:55:44 Marlis Humphrey: Thank you Father Ivan!
00:56:11 Frank Jatzek: Where it custom in Serbia to announce a marriage in Public (for example the Newspapers) too? That could help in cases where the original church books are gone but the Newspapers survived.
00:56:41 Marlis Humphrey: @Melanie. I am Rajcevic and Rogich from Citluk and Plecas and Obradovich from Divoselo
00:57:37 Melanie Hinds: @Marlis - Not sure of the exact towns, just the general area. My grandfather's last name was Kupresan. But he Americanized it to Kupresh.
00:58:27 Melanie Hinds: @Marlis - My maiden name is Markovic. My dad was from a village outside Krusevac.
00:59:57 Marlis Humphrey: Melanie - Do you read Serb World Magazine? The often have stories of families and history of towns.
01:00:32 Melanie Hinds: Marlis - No. I will have to check it out. We must connect offline after this webinar!
01:01:56 Melanie Hinds: Russ - Can Fr. Ivan's PP be made available after the webinars?
01:03:02 Frank Jatzek: 70% of the Vital records between 1710 and 1880 are digitized? That is awesome! I'm so envious because that's a huge treasure you have there.
01:03:27 Carol Petranek: I am envious, too!
01:09:22 Marlis Humphrey: The vital records on DVD do they just cover vitals only  in Serbia? Where do I find  Serbian church/vital records from Croatia - Lijka region.
01:12:26 Frank Jatzek: @marlis: did you checked the Croatia, Church Books 1516-1994. Records of births and baptisms, marriages; deaths and burials performed by priests in Croatia. Includes vital records of Jews. These records were acquired from the Croatian State Archive. Baptisms through 1900 can be searched. https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/2040054 ?
01:16:21 Frank Jatzek: Father Ivan: as it seems like that the Gravestone at your Picture includes Pictures itself I wondered if you Keep Headstones forever like the Jewish community or if you remove them after a specific time like we do in Germany
01:20:51 Marlis Humphrey: I looked for town records a couple of years ago and found nothing and they were not indexed so I had to slug through reading the Croatian. I have always been confused as to church records in Croatia - would they even contain the Serbs living there or only be the Croatian churches - because of the history of Serbs and Croatians. This collection of Croatia Church Books for 1516-1994 I was not aware of and would not have thought to look there. Thank you! The history of wars and ethnic cleansing make genealogical research in the former Yugoslavia especially difficult.
01:28:00 Marlis Humphrey: Yes FS and from Frank on this call. I just looked in the collection and the first names of the people in the records seem to be not Serbian.
01:35:52 Cousin Russ: Interesting that food is part of a death experience
01:48:46 Marlis Humphrey: Beautiful headstone / cross. Thank you for all the photos. They evoke such feeling. 1) In my situation do I write to the Croatia archives? 2) Do I also write to local churches near villages of Divoselo and Citluk? 3) Do Serbian churches still exist there? 4) I think there is a branch of the Croatia archive in Gospic. Is that the place to start?
01:49:05 DearMYRTLE .: I will ask these questions, Marlis.
02:03:03 Marlis Humphrey: Vrlo Hvala - that would be wonderful if you would connect me to Serbian orthodox priest communities!
02:04:01 Melanie Hinds: Yes, that would be a great resource to have. I need to determine exactly where in Lika my mother's family came from.
02:04:12 Marlis Humphrey: There are only a few books I found for Divoselo/Gospic and they seem to all Catholic names. Archive connection too would be amazing!
02:04:38 Marlis Humphrey: Zbogom! You are sent by God!
02:04:50 Melanie Hinds: Yes, Hvala!!
02:05:02 Frank Jatzek: I bet you help a lot more as soon as this Video will get around
02:05:44 Melanie Hinds: Thank you Myrt, Russ & Carol, for putting this together.

Mondays with Myrt - Japanese Research, Hybrid Society Meetings, #DNA at SAR and DAR




DearREADERS,
We lead off with a non-genealogist asking about Japanese research, then spend time discussing the advisability of adopting the principles in our new series called "Hybrid Society Meetings". Now SAR has permitted DNA evidence for new applicants, following what the DAR has permitted for some time. This lead to showing the link of Blaine Bettinger's Shared Centimorgan Project diagram on his blog, The Genetic Genealogist. For additional topics and links we mention, see the typed chat log below my signature.

Once we stopped the recording, this is the page link we shared with Pat K. about setting permissions for Zoom to access all files on her brand new Mac. https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/360016688031-Using-the-Zoom-Client-and-Zoom-Rooms-with-macOS

11:14:48 From  Karen Looney  to  Everyone:
I thought you recently did a training on how to create a blog in Google Blog.  I couldn't find my notes, but found your "How to set up a blog" 101a and 101b from 2014. I got stuck though. Where should I go from here?  Suggestions?

What other filters are helpful in FTM2019, Russ?
11:19:56 From  Melanie Hinds  to  Everyone:
Q for Russ: Please explain how you indicate historical location changes for counties. E.G. A county went by one name in 1810 and now goes by another due to a new county being carved out of it. How do you note that in whatever genealogy software you use.


11:20:49 From  Danine Cozzens  to  Everyone:
Question — if you find a probate/will or other document listing enslaved people by first name, is there any place to post this? It might be a clue to family groups for someone.

@Danine - a blog post, either yours or a guest post on someone else's blog.
11:22:31 From  Cousin Russ  to  Everyone:
11:22:59 From  Karen Jaszewski  to  Everyone:
I was watching a webinar…the researcher listed them as “children” so that they were associated with the slave owner...
11:23:17 From  Shelley Murphy  to  Everyone:
I am working on a presentation on researching first name only ancestors-Genealogy=Time, Place and Asking Questions
11:23:18 From  Melanie Hinds  to  Everyone:
Thanks, Russ. I will check out your blog posts.
11:23:42 From  Frank Jatzek  to  Everyone:
Sheila: someone asked me this before and I know of it but never had any experience with it because my ancestors where Prussians and there where there was no Poland back then.
11:23:59 From  Karen Jaszewski  to  Everyone:

Thanks for all the leads — this helps a lot.
11:26:12 From  DearMYRTLE .  to  All panelists:

11:26:24 From  Dave Robison:  During the last "Finding Your Roots" Dr. Henry Louis Gates walked through the method they used to identify certain slave answer of the guest. I'm sure it was a but more complex than what was presented due to time constraints. But what they did might be helpful to some.
11:27:14 From  Linda Stufflebean: Also Atlantic Loyalist Connections has an excellent list of resources on the blog: https://loyalist.lib.unb.ca/atlantic-loyalist-connections/remote-research-selected-online-resources-loyalist-history
11:27:15 From  Micki Minner  to  All panelists:
WOW....I have Canadian roots from loyalists that left America
11:27:57 From  Frank Jatzek  to  Everyone:
One Thing to add for historic place names: Ancestry's "life story" misplaces one place for my ancestors. Ancestry's "life story" places them in Thuringia while they where set correctly anywhere else

Hybrid Society Meetings - Intro




DearREADERS,
Car and Driver Magazine’s website explains “Quite simply, a hybrid combines at least one electric motor with a gasoline engine to move the car. […] Sometimes the electric motor does all the work, sometimes it's the gas engine, and sometimes they work together." 

Two ways to accomplish moving the vehicle.

Hybrid society meetings have two ways to accomplish education goals.

A hybrid society meeting has two ways for members to attend:
  • in-person
  • virtual
We are accustomed to IN-PERSON monthly Genealogy Society Meetings. Then Covid hit. Rather than shutting down, progressive societies have gone VIRTUAL, so attendees and presenters could gather using virtual meeting technology like Zoom.

However, though we are wearing masks and gradually becoming vaccinated, certain segments of the world’s general population are still high risk for inflection. Your society’s usual meeting place may not yet be open for groups of more than ten at a time in the meeting room.

Zoom technology permits remote society members to meet virtually using a variety of devices – be it a cell, a tablet or as we recommend – a computer. Cousin Russ and I hope that you will consider our work producing week-long virtual institutes and nine years of producing webinars and accept our advice as to the clearest way forward for your society.

OUR PLAN
Moving forward, we aim to support society leadership's embracing technology to produce hybrid meetings, special interest groups, courses and classes. The embedded video is the introduction to a series of short training videos to guide transition to successful hybrid meetings.
  • Meeting or Webinar?
  • Recording
  • Speaker Contracts
  • Equipment
  • Room Layout
  • Social Media
  • Setting Up Zoom
Your presenter may appear in-person at the society's meeting room or virtually, saving reimbursement for travel expenses. Either way, we have easy-to-follow guidelines to make it work.
