A Closer Look at Google+ by Dan Lynch - a free webinar on Wednesday, November 30

This past July, Google users from around the world began registering for a preview of the new Google+ service. It wasn’t long before the genealogical community led the charge to adopt this new set of powerful tools. Our August webinar on Google+ set records for registration and attendance as family historians and technologists from 72 countries heard Paul Allen, Dan Lynch, and Mark Olsen formally introduce The Google+ Project to the worldwide family history community. In fact, the event attracted viewers from outside the world of genealogy too!

In this updated webinar, Dan Lynch will step us through a closer look at Google+ and we’ll see how he and others are putting various features of the service to use for individual family history work, but also for societies and other organizations. As author of the award-winning book, "Google Your Family Tree" - Dan continues to share the benefits of Google and other technology offerings with family historians from around the world. You won’t want to miss this event!
The live webinar is scheduled for Wednesday, November 30, 2011 at 2PM Eastern U.S., so register today to reserve your virtual seat. Registration is free but space is limited to the first 1,000 people to join that day.
