DearFRIENDS,
Finally the weather in the northern hemisphere is turning warmer while our friends in the southern hemisphere are experiencing a break from the devastating heat of the past months. With this new month, exciting things are coming down the pike in DearMYRTLE’s webinar schedule.

Tony Proctor, our man in Ireland, has he developed a webinar dedicated to figuring out how to cite a document image on a website where static (always there) URLs are non-existent. Register now for his webinar titled BREADCRUMBS & SOURCES: How to cook better citations for problematic websites. Its coming up on Wednesday, 4 Apr 2018.

We’re also looking forward to Carol Kostakos Petranek’s two-part GreekGen Study GroupPerhaps you know her as the co-director of the Washington, DC Family History Center (in Kensington, Maryland). She also serves as a Citizen Archivist at the National Archives (US) and in the FamilySearch digitization project at the Maryland State Archives. Join us Wednesday, 11 & 18 Apr 2018 at Noon Eastern.
