Live Stream 1: Review of the content so far

On this course, learners will have the opportunity to ask the educators particular questions through live events called Live Streams These events also allow the educator to recap the previous weeks.

This is the first of our two Live Stream sessions. We will discuss the content of the course so far and the developments in the ‘What’s in a name?’ story. Chris Atkins will attend this session and will be sharing progress and thoughts on her research journey.

The first Live Stream event has now taken place. You can watch the recording on YouTube

We encourage you to ask questions and comment on the week’s topics during the Live Stream, and we’ll select the most popular ones to respond to during the event.

  • You can leave your question or comments on this step in advance. We hope to include some of these in the discussion - please ‘like’ the comments you find interesting to help us choose the most useful ones

  • You can follow and add to questions and comments on Twitter using the hashtag #FLgenealogy or sending a message to @FLgenealogy.

What happens if I can’t watch the Live Stream?
Don’t worry! Realtime participation is not a mandatory part of this course, but it is fun and we think you’d get a lot out of it. A recording of the discussion will be available at the same address above after the live event finishes. You can still make a contribution by leaving your question or comments on this step in advance, and we may include some of these in the discussion.

Will loading the Live Stream mean I appear on camera?
No, you will just watch the Live Stream like any other video.

Is a Google or YouTube account required to view the Live Stream?
No, you can watch the Live Stream without logging in to a Google or YouTube account. If you wish to submit comments, please use the methods above.
