Sat. - 23 2021 January : Janet McNaughton - “Researching from Home: Better than Ever.”
Researching from Home: Better Than Ever Synopsis
Family history evidence is not all on line. However there is a LOT on line and there is
more every day. This presentation will describe the abundance of on line record
resources. The presentation will also include methods to find family history evidence on
line for personal family history questions. When in person research is not possible for
reasons of time, distance, quarantine, and/or health, you can still research from home
and make amazing discoveries.

GETTING STARTED WITH ZOOM - You may connect by using a desktop computer, laptop, tablet or mobile telephone. Each type of device will participate in the meeting a little differently. For tablet and mobile you may want to download the Zoom App. You can download the Zoom Client app. For iOS devices look in the app store for “Zoom Cloud Meetings” and for Android it’s in Google Play. Alternately you can get the download at https://ZOOM.us/download#client_4meeting
Here is a link to a 1 minute YouTube Video "How to Join a Zoom Meeting."
If you just want to sit in on a Zoom meeting all you need is the ability to watch a video on your computer. If you want to participate you need a microphone. Many computers have a speaker and a microphone built in. If yours does not, you can obtain a headset with a boom microphone. External speakers will improve your experience. If you want to be seen by others you need a web camera. If your computer does not have a camera you can purchase one.
There is a good video tutorial at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6_8vQDfSzdY
And zoom.us has some demonstrations.
To run a test of your setup type zoom.us/test into your search bar.
