Pat Richley, also known as DearMYRTLE, has just kicked off a 20-week Beginning Genealogy Study Group using Google Hangouts. All you need is a computer with speakers to watch these presentations and if you can’t watch them live, then you can watch the recorded sessions at any time.

Take it one extra step and join her DearMYRTLE Genealogy Community at Google+ to see how to actually participate in these – and other – hangouts. You will need to create a free Google+ account to get in.
