So I'm finally getting back to genealogy, and my own at that. "Grandpowell"s family needs especial attention. Once I get a few generations back from her, the notes are confusing. A lot of work to do here.

When: Sunday March 30th, 3:30pm (Game Scheduled for 4:05p)
 
Where: 601 Plantation Hill Road, Gulf Breeze, FL 32561
 
Who: You, your guest, and kids
 
What:  A party!  We’ll have sodas, beer, hot dogs and hamburgers on the grill, and some snacks!
 
 
The forecast is sunny and 70, so kids can play outside as well as in.  We will have several big screens showing the games and also pipe the game outside!
 
This should be great fun and we hope to see you all there!
 
Please let me know if you can attend or not so we can plan the food.
 
Thanks!
 
Neville and Paula Sarkari

Our homepage in India got a splash of color today for Holi. During this “festival of colors,” Hindus around the world frolic and spray each other with colored powders and water to mark the beginning of spring.

Geneabuddies: Someone posed a stumper to me: .how would you go about finding out what deferment and what was the reason for the deferment of someone who did not serve in WWII? My first thought is the local draft board at the time, but I'm sure smarter people out there know the answer!

As the sun creeps northward, it begins to shine through the prisms of my chandeliers, giving me a constellation of rainbows and light on my wall. Later, as summer fades into fall, it will again. My own little science in my living room!

In this picture, I am the only one besides the baby not born in the Commonwealth. I'm also the only one who wore a hat!

Does anyone have a success story involving Genealogy, Google+, and / or Hangouts? I sure would like to have one for my book! Thanks!

Great info!
 
Improving accessibility in Hangouts

Accessibility is something we care a lot about on the Hangouts team. The Hangout Captions app, for example, enables live transcription services for the deaf and hard of hearing (http://goo.gl/4RujF). And "Take the Floor" makes it easier for sign language speakers to do a Hangout together (http://goo.gl/chyKS). Today we're rolling out two accessibility improvements in Hangouts - a Sign Language Interpreter app, and a fuller set of keyboard shortcuts. 

1) Using the Sign Language Interpreter app, deaf or hard of hearing users who prefer sign language can invite interpreters to speak and sign for them during a Hangout. They'll always see their interpreter at the top right of the window, and they'll become the focus of the Hangout whenever their interpreter speaks for them. You can install the app using this link: https://plus.google.com/hangouts/_?gid=532733437531.

2) Keyboard shortcuts are also available in Hangouts -- great for people who can't or don't want to use a mouse during the video chat. For example: muting your microphone is now as simple as Ctrl+D (PC) or Command+D (Mac), and you can start chatting with Ctrl+B (PC) or Command+B (Mac). To view the full list of keyboard shortcuts just type '?' while in a Hangout, or visit this page: support.google.com/plus/bin/answer.py?answer=2752487.


Both features are rolling out gradually, so let us know what you think once you've taken them for a spin!
