PURPOSE: Support & Collaboration

  • If you have experience with family history but are new to using the Wiki, this meeting is for you! You may receive support in contributing to the Wiki, which helps others with direction in their personal research.
  • The first part of the meeting will include training on the scheduled topic. After the training, the agenda is open for you to ask any questions you may have about working in the Wiki.

Note About the Meeting Connection

When you connect with Meeting Place on your computer and enter your Meeting ID # (5252) and then your name, you will come to a screen that asks you to

___ Join the Web Conference

___ Have Meeting Place Call My Phone

Both of these options should be checked and your telephone number entered prior to hitting the "Connect" button. Your screen images will come from the "join the web conference" link, but your audio only comes through a telephone connection, so if you do not make that telephone hookup, you will be unable to hear what is going on in the meeting.
