These chat rooms are the place to talk about your ancestors, learn how to research your family history and discuss anything to do with genealogy. We have special interest groups (SIGs) that address specialized topics and interests (Beginners' chat room, Root Cellar chat room, Ancestral Digs chat room, and Golden Gates chat room, Canadian chat rooms, and Family Reunion chat room), as well as the Family Tree House chat room which is geared towards general genealogy. These chat rooms are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, although they may not always be hosted.

You will have to register and pick a password to enter these rooms. You will also be asked for your birthday, but you don't have to give your real date of birth (just make one up).
There are currently Genealogy chats Monday through Thursday at 8pm Central Time. Don't be surprised to see additional chats added soon.
