Are you attending #genchat?

PictureThere is an exciting thing happening tonight over on Twitter.  It is the first genealogy chat, ever as far as I can tell, and it should be very exciting!  You can learn more by reading the pressrelease on Conference Keeper.  Conference Keeper, for those who don’t know it, is the calendar with all the genealogy conferences and workshops posted in one place.  It is fantastic!

Not sure what a Tweet Chat or Twitter Party is?  Well, check out these resources to answer your questions.   How to Participate in a Tweet Chat by Janet Fouts and Getting Started: A Guide for Beginners by tweeparties (both referenced on the press release from Conference Keeper).

Per the invite I received, here is the information on how you can attend:

Tonight’s chat will be on starting your 2013 research off on the right foot.  Looking over the list I can see quite a few topics that should get a lot of attention.  I know I am interested in newspaper research, oral histories, cemetery projects, and continuing education to name a few.

Look for me on Twitter @tntfamhist!
