If you spend any time in the genealogy/family history corners of the Internet, sooner or later you'll encounter somebody 'Starting over' -- re-tracing and re-recording their research.

The chat will occur in its own room all Saturday long. Be sure to register yourself to get a reminder.

If you have any ideas for future topics, post them as answers to Weekly genealogy chat topics - now a week long event! and they might be used in an upcoming week!
