SCGS Jamboree, Streaming Videos and You!

Genealogists used to spend hours in dusty archives hoping to find a faded document that would knock down a brick wall in their research. Today a large portion of a genealogist's research is done on your computer and the biggest challenge is keeping up with technology and terminology.

Streaming Video

What is Streaming Video?

When video/media is sent directly or 'live' over the Internet and is played on your computer when it arrives. There is no need to download the video/media before it can be played, it is watched LIVE!
