DearMYRTLE & Cousin Russ demo how to set up a Google Hangout in 10 minutes and answer the following questions: 1. Must we use Google accounts? 2. What about advanced advertising? 3. Where to post the link to join the panel? 4. Where to embed the video before the event starts? 5. What if some members are in the same room, and provide remote access to the rest of the family? 6. What if our guest speaker is not in the same room as our family? 7. What equipment is required? 8. Where is the video archived? 9. Can we make the video private, unlisted or public?
DearMYRTLE is the nom de plume of Pat Richley-Erickson, author of the award-winning DearMYRTLE Genealogy Blog, consistently among the top 5 family history blogs internationally, where her focus is on beginning genealogy topics. A speaker at regional and national conferences including several live videocasts at RootsTech2011, 2012 and 2013, Ol' Myrt is slated to present two G+ Hangout on Air workshops at RootsTech 2014. DearMYRTLE is a co-founder of the Genea-Quilters group on Facebook, and founder of www.GeneaWebinars.com, a centralized calendar and blog for all known genealogy webinar hosts and virtual presenters. Have fun watching Myrt LIVE on "Mondays with Myrt" on DearMYRTLE's YouTube Channel and Google+ Community. Online since 1985 in membership development with Q-Link's Your Family Tree and later on the leadership team of AOL's Golden Gate Genealogy Forum, Pat is a retired post-secondary computer instructor. She and her husband live in Salt Lake City, Utah, just a stone's throw from the Family History Library.
Russ Worthington lives in the beautiful Northwest corner of New Jersey that most people don't know exists in his beautiful state (no exit numbers). He started "collecting his ancestors" about 15 years ago when his youngest daughter gave him a genealogy management software program as a gift to "give him something to do." Little did he know where this would lead him and the people he would meet. Russ enjoys helping others in their hunts and in building their family relationships.
