Editor’s Chat – 25 Nov 2013

Bookmark and Share

Join the monthly BCGS Editor’s Chat Monday, November 25th, at 7 pm PST.

Ask a question about Canadian genealogy, the BCGS journal or website, one of our BCGS projects, or about BC genealogy, or comment on worldwide genealogy news or a find. During the chats, it’s easy to add links and photos for others to see.

This is a text chat right here on the main BCGS.ca home page; no software or headphones are needed. You will be able to type your own message without registering, but if you RSVP / register ahead of time, you will be identified clearly (and you can use an avatar/image to identify yourself).

Comment on New Genealogy Roadshow Program

Very light on substance – more or less provides conclusions to research that takes place off-show. In several cases conclusion as simple as “you are not related to this person”. Participants pre-submit information and it is generally presented at location of televised show. Show format seems to drive level of information provided. Not much opportunity for learning about genealogical research, even for beginners.

_____________________________________________
This will be our first BCGS Editor’s Chat – Monday, May 27th, 7 pm, right here. (We will open a bit early to make sure all is working.)Join us to chat about the British Columbia Genealogical Society, the BC Pioneers or the BC War Memorials projects, or how to submit an article for the BCGS journal or website, or to ask a question about BC research in general.

This is our first chat experiment, so please do bear with us!

We hope it’s a simple process for you – it’s a text chat, so you should be able to just type into the box above. This year, we will be trying out a number of ‘new to us’ communication tools – via live chat, Skype, Google Hangout, maybe even a Facebook or Twitter text chat.
