July 2010 Chat Schedule


Monday, July 5, 8:00pm (MST) (Tuesday July 6, 2:00am GMT) GENTREK: Why American Families Migrated, part 1.
For a family life, few acts have such fateful import as that of migration. When we study a particular lineage and inquire into the causes of its metamorphoses – the reversals of fortune, the conversions of faith, the severing of old ties, the adoptions of new cultural modes – the act of migration is likely either to be imminent or to have recently occurred. Consequently, we must give particular attention to migration, to its causes and its results. Your Chat Hosts, Jayne McCormick and Dae Powell.

Your Chat Host, Rita-Louise Ely.

Tuesday, July 13, 7:00pm (MST) VOIP and SYPE.
Voice over Internet converts the sound of your voice into a digital signal that travels over the Internet and is received just like an ordinary phone call. In some cases, you can make these calls using a pre-programmed phone that looks and feels just like the phone you're used to. But, more often, you'll be making calls directly from your computer or laptop using Skype.Your Chat Host, Gus Marsh.

Monday, July 26, 8:00pm (MST) (Tuesday July 27, 2:00am GMT) GENTREK: The War of 1812.
The War of 1812 has been referred to by some historians as America’s “forgotten conflict.” The War of 1812 is also called America's Second War for Independence. The ostensible causes of the war were the seizure of U.S. ships and seamen by the British Navy, as well as rapid expansion of the frontier, where British intrigue was blamed for American settlers' troubles with Indians. Your Chat Hosts, Jayne McCormick and Dae Powell.

Monday, July 26, 10:00pm (MST) Ready, Set, Go! Adventures in Archives for Family Historians
Archives rock! Archives hold many records pertinent to family history. They are full of manuscripts, original works, and family papers. But they can also be a tad cumbersome and difficult to navigate. This is due to the nature of archive finding aids and how information is organized. In this session, learn about what type of information can be found in archives, how to identify particular archives to search, and how archives are organized. The next time you visit an archive, you will be a pro! Your Chat Host, Heather Isbell Kramer.

Tuesday, July 27, 7:00pm (MST) Why Cluster Genealogy?
Even if you don't really care whom your ancestors siblings, cousins and associates were, cluster genealogy can still be a very effective research technique.The records of siblings, cousins, and other family members may provide clues to the next generation that you haven't been able to find in the records left by your direct ancestor.Your Chat Host, Gus Marsh.

Thank you so much for the October Chat Schedule. Can you make me twins (so I can do the Saturday Chats while attending an SF convention)? I WILL have my laptop along and the convention center and hotel both have access BUT I am there for other activities.

SF fans usually have many interests. I'm going to mention Genealogy Wise each and every time it may come up!
