One thought on “August 2015 Second Life Genealogy Group Newsletter

  1. Sorry I missed the Chat last night, but I needed to be focused on the WDYTYA episode because I am giving a talk this afternoon on that topic.

    This news letter is AWESOME. What a great summary of our Activities. They are on my Calendar. You make is so much easier, for me at least, to have the SL Calendar on the GeneaWebinar calender.

    Thank you,

    Russ
