Live Stream 2: Review of the course content and the ‘What’s in a name?' story

As a result of industrial strike action taking place at the University of Strathclyde today, we regret to inform you that the two scheduled Live Stream events for Genealogy: Researching Your Family Tree which are scheduled to take place today at 15:10 GMT and 16:10 GMT have been cancelled.

We would like to apologise for any inconvenience this has caused.

A recording of the DNA Live Stream event which took place on a previous run of the course can be found on YouTube and in this session, we discussed many of the issues raised in the questions posed by current students on the discussion forums.


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

This is the second 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. Graham Holton will attend the session and will focus on answering your DNA questions; we will consider DNA questions put forward for the previous session so no need to resubmit those.

**This Live Stream event has been cancelled. **

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