"Family History Live Online" Webinar

DearMYRTLE has a post describing the web-based seminar hosted by Family History Live Online, to be held on Saturday, May 5, from 8 AM to 3:45 PM. There will be 13 presentations - please see the list at http://blog.dearmyrtle.com/2007/05/saturdays-online-seminar.html.

DearMYRTLE will have a presentation at 11 AM titled "BLOGGING: Getting the Word Out."

The way this will work is described in the blog post. In order to see the presentation content and hear the presentation, you have to:

1) sign up for the seminar at the Family History Live Online website: http://www.familyhistoryliveonline.com/.

2) download the RegL reader (for free)

3) download the presentation Content in the hours before the seminar starts

4) Log in to the web seminar and listen to the presentations while viewing the content.

5) If you have a microphone, you can ask questions at the end of each presentation.

This is a variation on some of the other types of web presentations of genealogy material. It requires that you be present at the computer for each talk.

Hopefully, the presentation content can be downloaded and viewed independent of the seminar. Or alternatively, perhaps each talk could be viewed after the seminar as an audio file keyed to the content.

We'll see how this goes - I wish I could participate but that's the day of my Aunt's service in Massachusetts.
