Dear Community,

Another great Mondays with Myrt this morning / afternoon / evening. Lots of GREAT Stuff happening live, great panel(s), and discussion.

I thought that I would take a peak at what happens with our recorded HOA. It went live on YouTube, as an archive about 3 hours ago, according to YouTube.

During the show / HOA, we had a peak viewership of 46 people. That would mean that a some point in time, 46 folks were watching Live. The average was 30.

Since then, IF I am reading the numbers correctly, 88 people have watched the archive in the last 3 hours.

I know that I am so glad to part of a great community and that are willing to share your research experience.

Not only that, it would appear that 2 or 3 new "cousin" relationships were mentioned, based on ONE Blog Post by our geneablogger and friend +Randy Seaver  who was running a grandparents camp while the show was lived. We even had a change to meet one of his grandchildren.

It doesn't get any better than this.

Thank you,

Cousin Russ

+Dave Robison, I have no doubt participation will grow. How about opening your HOAs to the public by getting on the GeneaWebinars calendar? I can add you to the list if you like.
