WikiTree LiveCasts are videos that we stream on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. They range from informative to interactive to casual, fun chat.

To keep informed of upcoming events, follow the tag livecasts.


Types of LiveCasts

WikiTree Challenge

As part of the WikiTree Challenge we host a LiveCast each Wednesday. During these LiveCasts we reveal our findings to the current guest star as well as introduce the upcoming guest star. These are typically at 8pm Eastern and are hosted by Mindy Silva.

Weekly Recap

The Weekly Recap takes place every Saturday morning at 10am Eastern time. It is hosted by Mags Gaulden and Sarah Callis. These are fun, casual LiveCasts where Mags and Sarah look back at things like answers to the Question of the Week, the featured Profiles of the Week and the photos that are shared as of part of the 52 Photos Challenge. They also give an update on how the WikiTree Challenge is going.

Friday Date Night

Friday Date Night takes place every other Friday where WikiTreers gather to add dates to profiles that do not have them. These LiveCasts are to get people motivated to go find dates and to give updates on progress. They're fun and casual. They take place at 4pm Eastern time and are hosted by Julie Ricketts and Eowyn Langholf.

Feature Friday

Feature Friday LiveCasts take place every other Friday (alternately with Friday Date Night). These LiveCasts are to showcase and demonstrate some of the wonderful (and often overlooked) tools and aspects of WikiTree. They are typically at 4pm Eastern time and hosted by Julie Ricketts and Eowyn Langholf.

Ask Me Anything

Ask Me Anything LiveCasts typically take place every other month. They generally have a theme like DNA or Categories. Questions are gathered ahead of time and answered during the livecast. Questions are also taken from the live chat during the LiveCasts. The date/time vary depending on guest availability.
