Live Stream 2: Review of Course Content and Genetic Genealogy
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.
This Live Stream event will take place on Friday 3rd April 2020 with Part 1 at 15:10 BST, available live via Zoom; Part 2 starts at 16:10 BST and is also live via Zoom.
How can I ask a question?There are three ways you can do this:
- 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 will be able to send questions and comments during the event by submitting them in the Zoom chat window.

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 made available soon after the live event finishes in Step 4.17. You can still make a contribution by leaving your question or comments on this current 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 Zoom account required to view the Live Stream?No, you can watch the Live Stream without a Zoom Account; once you have clicked upon the relevant Zoom meeting URL above you will have the option of either downloading a small piece of Zoom Client software or continuing via your internet browser.
Testing your computer setupIt is a good idea to test your computer setup for Zoom using this link:https://zoom.us/testThis will enable you to join a test meeting and check your internet connection, audio and video (although your own webcam won’t be activated for the actual meeting itself).
