Monday's Google+ webinar - 4 ways to watch

Register for our free webinar - Google+ the Next Big Thing - August 15, 2011

Webinar_guests Join these three leaders in Google technology as they get together to put on what we think will be one of the best webinars ever. Learn about Circles, Hangouts, Streams, Sparks and more. The webinar will be live on Monday, August 15, 2011 at 2PM ET.


Paul Allen, the Founder of FamilyLink.com and Ancestry.com has quickly become known as the unofficial Google+ Statistician. His expert use of posting in Google+ features, stats and using his own insider tricks have helped to make a huge impact on the initial success of Google+. Those who are part of Paul's Circles have already benefited from his expertise. Paul's fame has quickly grown and he currently has more than 22,000 followers on Google+.

Dan Lynch, a.k.a. "Mr. Google" is a technology marketing consultant, professional genealogist, and popular international speaker. One of the first to recognize Google's strengths for family history research, Dan authored the award-winning book "Google Your Family Tree", and is already helping the genealogical community understand the benefit of Google+ (see his blog at http://GooglePlusforGenealogists.com).

Mark Olsen is the Marketing Manager for FamilyLink.com and holds a degree in genealogy. Mark is another famous name on Google+ as he is currently hosting the longest ever Google Hangout, nearly one month of a continual hangout. Mark is one of the leading experts on Google+ Hangouts and has been learning how to better connect families and genealogists around the world. His current Hangout has been receiving a lot of positive press and has had visits from many well-known industry leaders.

We'll also be giving away fantastic door prizes:
5 one-year subscriptions to WorldVitalRecords.com, Dan Lynch's Google Your Family Tree book, and Thomas MacEntee's webinar CDs: Google for Genealogists, Google Docs for Genealogists, and Google Forms for Genealogists

The live webinar is scheduled for Monday, August 15, 2011, so register today to reserve your virtual seat. Registration is free but space is limited to the first 1,000 people to join that day. If you get a message that the webinar is full, it will also be broadcast live at http://hangoutongplus.com.

HI, I hope to attend, I registered but I will not be on this computer, I was planning on using a lap top from the library where other Genealogical Society members will be attending a picnic. I wanted to share this with them or at least watch for myself. I have been in and out with Mark O since day one. Great job, love what your doing, learning as I go. Thanks
