    Participant Instructions

    A participant in a LiveCast needs:

    • A Webcam and a mic for your computer.
    • A Gmail account.

    Between Monday and Wednesday before your hangout you will be sent you a list of questions:

    • Run through them and let Mags know if there is something you would like to be asked that isn't on the list.
    • Also look for questions you can answer with a Screen Share to help our viewers "see" what you are talking about. One week we looked shared an ancestor who's profile has been the subject of many, many, many merges. Since it was the Arborists Project, it helped Robin talk about how an Arborist might "work" a profile.

    On the day of your WikiTree LiveCast you will:

    • Be asked to be online about 15 minutes before your scheduled time (all times EST)
    • Be sent an invitation to join the chat a half hour before your scheduled time. When you receive the invite, just click the link and you will join the LiveCast as a participant. The Link will be posted to your Google Chat Window and come from Grandma's Genes as well as an email invite from the hangout itself (The link is not available until after 2:00PM EST the day of the LiveCast). When you receive the invite, just click the link and you will join the LiveCast as a participant.
    If you do not receive your invitation, please join the LiveCast via the WATCH link (above) and post in the live chat that you have not received your invitation. A new invitation will be sent to you or posted so you can join. Be patient as this is sometimes an issue.
    • Be asked to turn down you speaker volume to prevent feedback and echo effect. BEFORE the LiveCast begins.
