So, grab your candy floss and toffee apples and get ready for the show.

Anybody Listening? 

What is the time zone referenced in this schedule?

Haven’t you Utah-centric people figured out that a supposedly global company needs to have some semblance of a global mindset.

The time shown is London time. Nothing Utah-centric about that at all.

opps! I meant 1:14 PM London Time.

“The time shown is London time.”

And you know this because? Since they make no indication of the time zone and their historic track record says they post most of this stuff in MST (including the time stamp on these posts), it’s anybody’s guess.

BTW, by the time the social media king posted this, the first 3 sessions were already over.

I know this because I asked someone I know who is there at the show.

It’s GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) there is no such thing as ‘London Time’.

Gee . . . with a little prodding some bright light in San Francisco is now awake and actually monitoring his creation. Now we all know that the time is GMT since we don’t have a friend there to tell us like Andy purports to have.

What about offering video clips that can be viewed later for subscribers.

What happened Sunday? Been up late (PST in USA) and so far none of the first 3 scheduled talks have “live streamed.” Was there not enough interest? It would have been nice to know that you were not planning to show the Sunday sessions so I wouldn’t have stayed up all night.

Jean – Sorry for any confusion, we won’t be streaming today, we only were doing that Friday and Saturday.

Sunday streaming… was up ay 5:40 am on my day off to catch that last session on parish records. it has been offline until a few minutes ago and came in mid stream of the session. Is ancestry going to replay any of these videos on the blog or youtube?

Who Do You Think Is Confused? 

“Sorry for any confusion, we won’t be streaming today, we only were doing that Friday and Saturday.”

We are not confused, you people are.

You posted the message “Who Do You Think You Are? Live is now upon us (22nd – 24thFebruary), , ,” You put up a 3-day schedule. Why should we not think you are going to stream for 3 days?

Does anybody at this company take responsibility for their own actions? Is there any adult supervision?

That posted schedule should have been very specific as to exactly what is was for; either what they were going to live stream or what their presentations at the exhibit would be.

I hope they learn to handle details better but- having observed them for years…
