Yup! We're getting the hang of HOAs for Genealogists

Let's meet again to explore Google+ HOA (Hangouts on Air). We've learned a few things from +Sarah Hill+Ronnie Bincer and +Chad LaFarge about producing better quality live broadcasts, and to share higher resolution screen shots. Join us to see the results Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday night as follows:


Tuesday, 5 March through Thursday, 7 March 2013 

10pm Eastern US
9pm Central US
8pm Mountain US
7pm Pacific US

Once there, click on "FEED" on the nav bar. The Hangout will not start appearing here until I press the record button at the top of the hour. It may take a minute for the video stream to kick in.

If during viewing of the live broadcast of this Hangout On Air you'd like to post comments do so back at DearMYRTLE's Genealogy Community on Google+, perhaps on a different tab on your web browser. Ol' Myrt's community is located here:
