Why, it's the Second Life Chapter, Association of Professional Genealogists' (APG) Christmas party, of course!
WHEN: Thursday, December 8, 2011, 5:30 p.m. SLT (Second Life Time, same as Pacific Time)
WHERE: Second Life, near the Just Genealogy Firepit
DRESS: Formal, or anything Christmas-y or holiday-ish.
This is not what I'll be wearing to the party because, as you can see, I'm up to my knees in snow here, and it's much too cold for party clothes!
The SL-APG Chapter is an officially recognized chapter which promotes the highest standards of ethics and professionalism in the genealogical field at the regional level.
The chapter meets monthly using a free, social media, "virtual world" software called Second Life. It was organized to meet the networking needs of APG members who either do not have a local chapter near them, or are unable to attend their chapter meetings.
Anyone with an interest in genealogy is welcome to attend the meetings; however, official members of the chapter must be real life, dues-paying members of the APG.
I am thrilled to tell you that I was recently elected Vice President of the chapter, and I can't wait to get started next year!
So... if you've been looking for a reason to check out what those genealogists in Second Life are up to - and they're really quite busy - here you go!
Now, who's going to come as Santa Claus??
