Second Life Chapter APG to Meet Tomorrow

Members listened to an awesome talk about The Oregon Trail
at the September meeting.

WHEN:  Thursday, October 11, 2012, 5:30 p.m. SLT (Second Life Time, same as Pacific Time)*
WHERE:  Second Life, near the Just Genealogy Firepit

Drop in tomorrow night to hear popular speaker Chart Chick (her Second Life name, but you've likely heard of her in real life)!

In the spirit of Halloween, come in costume, or come as you are. I will be dressed as the Spirit of Genealogical Frustration - she's been visiting me a lot lately, so I know what she looks like! ;-)

The award-winning Second Life Chapter APG is an officially recognized chapter which promotes the highest standards of ethics and professionalism in the genealogical field at the regional level. The chapter is the recipient of the 2012 Golden Chapter Award presented by the APG at the 2012 NGS Family History Conference.

The chapter meets monthly using a free, "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 dues-paying members of the APG in real life.

Wow! I had no idea Second Life had genealogy groups. When I think of it, I think more of a place to "play dress-up" and chat with people in a virtual IM world.

It's great that genealogists are using the power of virtual IM/chat to connect!

Oh yes, there are several genealogy events every week! You can see what's going on by checking the Genealogists in Second Life Calendar. Fee free to join us!

That should be "feel," not "fee." No fee involved. ;-)
