Want to be a filmstrip panel participant? Wired internet works for best quality sound and video. You’ll need a USB headset mic and ear phones (or earbuds with an inline mic), and of course, a webcam. Register with your Google account and arrive at least 15 minutes early. Cousin Russ will send out the invitation in the “unified chat” and bring you “up” on the panel. Be prepared to make a few adjustments the first time you try this out. Mondays with Myrt is an easy, fun way to share what we’re learning about how best to find those elusive ancestors.

DearMYRTLE and Cousin Russ recognize the United Nations’ International Decade for People of African Descent 2015-2024. We reach out to _all_ regardless of race, color, creed or national origin with support for researching family and documenting cultural inheritance. http://www.un.org/en/events/africandescentdecade

Let’s explore genealogy websites, figure out how DNA test results may or may not match our paper-trail research, explore new family history software and apps, hash out our commitment to the Genealogical Proof Standard, and maybe get organized. Then there’s the MyHeritage-Legacy Family Tree scenario to discuss. Ol’ Myrt here will demo something about a RootsMagic Tree Share and a Family Tree Maker sync to Ancestry.com. It has to do with shared Ancestry Member Trees.

Myrt’s Musings

Yes, I’ve had a marvelous month-long vacation with the Orcas Island family reunion and other travel. At the International Germanic Genealogy Conference, Dirk Weissleder coined the phrase Think GeneaGlobally. I cannot wait to hear what’s happened to you this past month. If there’s time I’ll add my report about personal research breakthroughs. Yes, I actually did some onsite research. I can tell this week’s Mondays with Myrt is going to be action packed!

Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt     🙂
