ARCHIVED: Mondays with Myrt 30 July 2018

MondaysWithMyrt

What’s the “After Party?” It’s when we stop the webinar recording, but continue talking. This time, we discussed Pat Kuhn’s craft YouTube channel (awesome!) and one of Ol’ Myrt’s ancestors whose probate packet indicated he had $13,000US in the bank when he died. We’ve included the Dollar Times Inflation Calculator link below that indicated the buying power in 2018 dollars is over $165,000US. Wow.

Among our topics today:

  • What are you collecting?
  • RootsWeb Mailing Lists Help
  • Ancestry’s “We’re Related” smart phone app
  • Randy Seaver’s Finding a 1916 California death certificate in FamilySearch’s digital image collection
  • DearMYRTLE’s DAR application – she’s gathering 2 more required documents
  • Blaine Bettinger’s DNA-Central Webinars
  • True Lewis’ 2 favorite DNA apps

10:55:20 From Robbin Smith : agreed

DearMYRTLE’s DAR Application is in process.
11:25:16 From Barbara LaMarche to All panelists : As a 10 member of DAR and past Registrar, I am so exited to hear your news ! DAR is a fabulous sisterhood that provides service around the world and preserves our family histories. I serve on the Veteran’s committee.

11:32:50 From Robbin Smith : Online Idaho Death Records & Indexes https://www.deathindexes.com/idaho/
11:33:11 From Crystal Toenjes : I’m happy to hear about your good experience with finishing your DAR paperwork. I’ve been working for more than six years, and there always seems to be some small thing missing from my proofs to finish my application. I’m now researching my sixth potential DAR Patriot, and really hope this one will finally work out since he is also a gateway ancestor for the Mayflower Society.
11:33:28 From Deb Andrew : Do scanned copies work or are originals needed?

11:34:00 From Barbara LaMarche : Yes, thank you. We collect supplies for our local Veterans home and the Wounded Warrior Project. We help our community celebrate all our patriot holidays serving refreshments at parades. Also, our quilters make quilts for our older local Vets and the rest of us supply fabric etc to our talented quilters. We also participate in Wreaths Around the World for the graves of Veterans in our local cemetery at Christmas time . Love all of you at Dear Myrtle. I have learned soooo much over the years.
11:35:31 From True Lewis : Scanned Copies of the Originals are acceptable.

Is DearMYRTLE committing a copyright infringement by including a page from the LDS Church’s The Friend in her weekly letter to her grandchildren? What about no attribution showing up on her screen shot from hre RootsMagic genealogy software?

11:35:41 From Robbin Smith : for personal use I think is okay
11:35:55 From Danine Cozzens : But it’s personal use.
11:36:06 From Devon Lee : We’re encouraged to use these items in our Primary classes. So, what’s the difference in a family share?
11:36:14 From Maria Tegtmeier : I think that as long as you are not trying to earn money from it, you are ok.
11:36:22 From Deb Andrew : It could be a violations, unless they stated upfront that it is given a release.
11:36:29 From Doris Haskell : You can share with your grandchildren. NO problem.
11:36:37 From June Butka : If you are using it for family only not publishing. is not infringing. Nothing being sold. or published you shuld be okay.
11:36:42 From Randy Seaver : fair use to copy it and use it for personal information and education, but don’t publish it
11:37:56 From Deb Andrew : Always write and asked, to be on the safe side.
11:38:05 From June Butka : Is it a problem to request use from LDS?
11:38:20 From Randy Seaver : Check the book for usage restrictions, and if there are some, ask for permission to use it broadly
11:38:48 From True Lewis : Your Welcome Valerie –
11:40:13 From Randy Seaver : I found only the baseball bat on the image.
11:40:27 From True Lewis : Crystal do you have a Registrar helping you? Someone in your local area should be able to guide you. You may need a extra pair of eyes.
11:40:31 From Devon Lee : Ha. I have the screen too small to find the items.
11:41:59 From Marcia Philbrick : Re: Screenshots — When the screen shot is of our database in RootsMagic, do we have to get permission from RootsMagic?
11:42:35 From Devon Lee : Do you need to say screen shot from RM if the article is already talking about RootsMagic? That seems obvious.
11:43:02 From Crystal Toenjes : True: Yes I do, as well as working with some of the other ladies in the group who have served as registrar in the past. With on of the potential patriots in particular, at least two other people thought I had enough, but the current registrar did not and will therefore not submit the paperwork.
11:43:07 From Randy Seaver : Marcia, I don’t think we need permission for screenshots of RootsMagic screens. It’s YOUR image, not there’s. It’s your data on their format.
11:44:09 From True Lewis : My 1st Time at Continental Congress: https://mytrueroots.blogspot.com/2018/07/daughters-of-american-revolution-127th.html
11:44:30 From Randy Seaver : True – loved your blog post!
11:44:41 From True Lewis : Thanks Randy!!!!!!

11:49:21 From Cousin Russ : Author Elizabeth Matson
https://www.amazon.com/Elizabeth-Matson/e/B003XKGS9G/ref=dp_byline_cont_book_1

11:47:00 From DearMYRTLE: Blaine Bettinger made a bold statement about making videos accessible to all. “Over the past few months, I’ve learned that genealogy has a VERY LONG way to go to encourage, much less ensure, access to anyone with hearing and/or sight challenges. It’s not even on the radar of most genealogists. For example, from this point forward, other than contracts I’ve already entered into, I will only participate in recorded presentations/webinars that are closed captioned (within a certain time frame). I encourage other genealogists to join me!” Source:  https://www.facebook.com/bbettinger/posts/531945976876

11:51:31 From Devon Lee : I’m hearing impaired and I struggle in some live streams, but there are some platforms that have captioning live.
11:52:03 From Devon Lee : I’ll admit that I don’t watch some channels that don’t have closed captions, but I’ll accept a bad caption rather than no caption.
11:52:58 From Doris Haskell : I am 74, short, hearing impaired. All I ask is to be able to sit in the first or second row.
11:53:04 From Devon Lee : As for the presentation slides, I think there is much that can be done to improve the slides that we are using when we teach. Too often, too much is on the slides than should be
11:53:16 From Valerie Lisk : When you register for an event at the St. Louis Genealogical Society, they ask if you have a disability and they try to accommodate everyone.

12:00:19 From Valerie Lisk : I have a password file in my google docs.
12:00:55 From Doris Haskell : I have a document printed out with my passwords, and a Google Sheets file as well.

West Virginia
19:25:34 From Cousin Russ : West Virginia Division of Culture and History http://www.wvculture.org/history/gallery/photogallery.html
19:26:49 From Dave Robison : WV State Archives is very interesting to me. One of my ggrandfathers may have been born there in the late 18th century
19:28:56 From Dave Robison : The problem at the Springfield Archive is help. They have mountains of donated material that needs evaluating, cataloging and storage.

19:31:56 From Deb Andrew : The grade school I went to became a muesum for our Franklin, Illinois. They were the first place I wrote to find out info on my family. They also had information for Williamson county, that had been part of Franklin county.

19:35:39 From Dave Robison : The Springfield [Massachusetts] Archives have been very cooperative with WMGS, allowing us to bring a group of our members in after hours.
19:36:52 From Deb Andrew : My guys went way beyond the call. They collected everything they had in the records and highlighted everything. They also have obituaries.

19:45:47 From Louise Smith : I think it’s terrific to encourage people to be prepared when they go to an archive, library, museum but I think it’s important to qualify that by saying don’t overthink it – don’t freeze and not go and ask your questions because you’re afraid you’re not prepared enough. I think the most important things to take with you to an archive, etc., is a smile, loads of patience, and a bucket full of thank yous. Think best effort, not perfect effort.

REGISTER: August DearMYRTLE Webinars

DearFRIENDS,
Cousin Russ and I present these webinars at no cost to the viewer. If you find the information useful, consider the Pay What You Want business model Ol’ Myrt employs. Post COMMENTS AFTER the hangout, comments continue at http://bit.ly/DearMYRTLEonGoogle

Once registered, expect a confirmation email, and several reminder emails with your personal URL for viewing. Consider joining the panel as an official “participant”. We may even “scramble” to mix up the conversation a bit with new panelists. If you’ve never been a Zoom panelist, you might want to test this out in the Mondays with Myrt After Party  that is not recorded.
