Do you like to get together with friends and talk about genealogy? #genchat lets you do just that on alternating Friday nights. That’s when an informal group of genealogists from around the globe gather together to discuss a pre-chosen topic that has something to do with genealogy. It all takes place on Twitter; it’s like a virtual coffee shop where genealogists meet to connect, engage, and learn from each other.
On Friday, August 29, participate in a live #genchat session at 4:00 p.m. at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, Room 008A at the FGS 2014 Conference in San Antonio, Texas.
The various social media sites have become dynamic tools for genealogists, and Twitter is no exception. See how this form of social media can be used by genealogists who have varying backgrounds, skill levels, and research focuses. You’ll find the conversation interesting and incredibly educational! Particpants follow each other using the hashtag, #genchat.
Whether you’ve participated before or want to see what #genchat is all about, here’s a chance to get in on the conversation in San Antonio.
