America's National Archives to hold virtual genealogy fair

Crikey, the Americans are onto me!!! :) From the National Archives in Washington (www.archives.gov):

I wanted to let you know about our first-ever virtual Genealogy Fair on September 3 and 4. The Fair will be streamed online through Ustream. It's free, and there's no reservations or passwords. You can ask questions through the chat function, or tweet your questions to @usnatarchives #genfair2013.

Our experts from the National Archives will be discussing Native American and African American history, immigration, Civil War pensions, U.S. Colored Troops, and Navy Deck logs.

We hope to "see" you there: http://go.usa.gov/j7hQ

Time to smash a few brick walls...!
