Going to give something another try.
Thought I would repeat the same kind of program we had on June 24, 2020. An informal online Zoom genealogy discussion group. Just got this one scheduled in our library’s Calendar of Events for Tuesday, July 28, 2020, from 2-3:30 pm in the afternoon. It will be a discussion program in the afternoon rather than the evening. Plus, no speaker, other than me if you consider it that way. Also, will be limiting the size of participant numbers to only 18.
I was actually very happy with how the June 24, 2020 “Genealogy Chit-Chat” program went. We had 11 participants out of a maximum amount I set of 12. Active discussions from all participants. Many were happy the program was being offered as an afternoon program from 2-3 pm. P.S., it actually went so good we were still “chatting” at 3:30 pm, 30 minutes past our scheduled end time! I also plan on increasing the number of registrants for the program to 18 instead of the 12 I set for the first one on June 24, 2020. The allotted time for the July 28, 2020 program will be set to 1 hour 30 minutes instead of the 1 hour limit for the original June 24, 2020 program.
I will bring to the program a topic to have in my back pocket on the “World War II Draft Cards” if need be. If participants just want to ask questions that is fine also. I will give it my best shot to provide good answers. In a small group setting other participants too can provide helpful information. That actually happened during the June 24, 2020 program where many of the participants were helping others out with their skills and knowledge. We can also just do your questions to me about any genealogy topic if that will be the desire.
I have scheduled it as a Zoom meeting and not a webinar. You will have the ability to turn on your camera if you so choose or just leave your audio on if you prefer. So this will not be a one-way feed of information from me to you. We will all be able to interact with each other.
Here is a direct link to the entry of this program in our library’s Calendar of Events. You will need to register for it if you want to participate and you will need to supply your email address so we can send you an email 1 hour before the program starts with the Zoom connect information:
As I write this, there are currently 6 registered for the program. 12 slots are still open.
The program is open to all. You do not need to be a Schaumburg Township District Library cardholder for you to participate. All are welcome!
I am looking forward to do this again and be able to help those who participate with their questions.
I plan on being flexible. We will see how this goes or if I gone down with the Titanic!!
Remember, limited number of participants. Only 18.
