um. not for most of it. It's more talking about how to present WikiTree at conferences/reunions. Emma asked Charlotte's question for advice on One Name Studies about 45 minutes into it, and the connection with Kirsty was lost minutes later. The one thing I got from the brief response before she was dropped was that starting a One Name Study is NOT to be taken lightly & the best time to start a One Name Study is when you suddenly realize that you are, essentially, doing a One Name Study. Then start one as a focus for all the information you're collecting/have collected. And when she came back online (at about the 53 minute mark): SOURCES! And numbering the people in the study (which WikiTree IDs take care of). How to start: With your own tree. Get it solid. Then look at the information you've collected and pick a family to do their tree & get it solid. Repeat.

Just thought I'd share my notes.

Cheers, Liz

P.S. Name Study categories are mentioned, but the examples given for subcategorizing geographically don't follow the format recommended by the ONS Project - see https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project:One_Name_Studies#Categorization for that.
I did not realize the subject matter of the conference until I saw it ! I adjusted the announcement (wink).
