We are honored to have a guest host this month – Michael Daniels. He’s showing us how to use a program called OBS to provide interesting video overlays to our zoom webinars. He’s the developer and host of Plusword over on YouTube.

We’re playing Cousin Russ’ “Who’s In My Line?” where a guest posts a challenge about an ancestor, and the panelists try to guess with no more than 20 incorrect answers. 

  • Cousin Russ challenged us to find out about an “unexpected descendant” and how 21 families shared a unique event.
  • Sheri Fenley asked us to figure out what her 2nd great grand uncle Micager Sylvester Wallace invented in 1882.
  • DearMYRTLE here told the tale of a particularly worthwhile avocation for someone “Whos’ in Her Line.”
  • All panelists received a $25 Amazon Gift Card.
  • Andrew Hatchett subbed for Lisa Gorrell, and graciously forwarded his gift card to her.
