Somehow we pulled ourselves together after a thrilling week of RootsTech SLC activities to discuss some of the news coming out of the annual conference. There was the #Ancestry media breakfast, the #FindMyPast Luncheon where I served on the “One Tree” panel discussion with Rick Sayre, CG and and Nick Barratt from the Sticks Research Agency, and the plethora of news from #MyHeritage. We got the scoop from Cousin Russ about his Family Tree Maker “Help Bar” booth.
10:00:46 From Molly McKinley : Hi from warm breezy Florida.
10:01:04 From Betty-Lu Burton to All panelists : I watched Rootstech on the live stream
10:01:05 From Graham Walter : Hello everyone – from London (just)
10:01:33 From Sheryl Zeringue to All panelists : Good morning from South Louisiana.
10:01:41 From Betsey Cotter to All panelists : Hi from Seattle. I watched almost all of the live stream sessions.
10:02:04 From Robbin Smith : hello from Miami
10:02:10 From Louis Kessler : Enjoyed RootsTech from afar this year. It was four full days for us as well and was almost as exhausting as being there.
10:02:24 From Launa : I think internet was overloaded in Ogden, because had a very hard time watching
10:02:42 From Gary Gauthier : Hello from Calgary! I watched the webcast from Salt Lake. It was good to hear from some rather interesting people.
10:02:47 From Robbin Smith : i watched as much as i could
10:03:17 From Robbin Smith : i have been playing around dna painter
10:03:28 From Shelley Murphy : Good afternoon from Virginia!
10:03:31 From Marian Koalski : I like seeing the panel. Can we do it more often?
10:03:36 From Valerie Lisk : Crista Cowen’s ancestry session on Wed. was terribly pixiled. They cleaned it up on the Rootstech site and it’s very clear.
10:04:12 From Louis Kessler : Yay for Randy’s Blog Compendium!
10:05:03 From Marcia Philbrick to All panelists : NotAtRootsTech is very useful! I’m looking forward to the additional links for the virtual pass!
10:05:20 From Shelley Murphy : LOL, I enjoyed the streaming…I like the Ancestry updates for the trees, etc.
10:05:21 From Marian Koalski : As always, I enjoyed Curt Witcher and Amy Johnson Crow’s videos
10:05:33 From Louis Kessler : Randy’s blog compendium: https://www.geneamusings.com/2019/02/rootstech-2019-slc-blog-compendium.html
10:05:56 From Pat Stano-Carpenter : Randy was best keeping us “live-streamers” up to date! Thanks, Randy!
10:06:19 From John Laws : Hi everyone from a sunny but bitterly cold Scotland 30 miles East of Edinburgh
10:06:34 From Cassandra Davis to All panelists : Hi from Michigan. RootsTech streaming presentations were great. Inspired and recharged.
10:06:36 From Pamla Hendrickson : Really enjoyed all the live streaming and reports from Roots Tech.
10:06:36 From Marcia Philbrick : Yes — it was around $129. Much cheaper than trying to travel to Utah.
10:06:42 From Devon Noel Lee : Howdy from a chilly, drizzly Houston
10:08:44 From Marian Koalski : Kris Rzepczynski
10:09:28 From Marian Koalski : Kris Rzepczynski’s presentation on Perilous Assumptions was entertaining and good advice.
10:09:33 From Devon Noel Lee : Several folks stayed at the Comfort Inn or the Sheraton.
10:09:49 From Linda Stufflebean : The Olive Garden closing was the first shock – Chico’s closed, too!
10:10:01 From Devon Noel Lee : That’s a lot of closing. What’s up?
10:10:27 From Devon Noel Lee : Poor Graham
10:10:42 From Linda Stufflebean : Nathan’s genealogy mysteries will hook you in the first couple of pages.
10:10:45 From Shelley Murphy : Poor Graham
10:11:03 From Devon Noel Lee : My teenage son loves Nathan’s books
10:11:29 From DearMYRTLE . to All panelists : .
10:11:44 From Cousin Russ : RootTech Salt Lake City Review https://genemeet.blogspot.com/2019/03/roottech-salt-lake-city-review.html
10:11:56 From Devon Noel Lee : Yeah! Janet did a great job.
10:12:23 From Graham Walter : Myko is an entertaining speaker
10:12:40 From susan bleimehl : My favorite was the very last on Saturday–Cemetery Tombstones. Very entertaining and educational.
10:13:28 From Robbin Smith : i use roboform for my pws
10:13:33 From Valerie Lisk : That’s what I have, Pat.
10:13:53 From Devon Noel Lee : My kids know all of my passwords and the variations of them.
10:14:14 From Randi Patrick to All panelists : I use iPassword and my son knows the initial entry code.
10:14:16 From Bill West : Good morning from snowy Massachusetts!
10:14:42 From Randi Patrick to All panelists : 1Password links Mac products.
10:14:42 From Shelley Murphy : I have a contact person on my cellphone that has all my passwords.
10:15:17 From Devon Noel Lee : I’m looking into how to make an “In Case I Die” file for the kiddos and the hubby. Trying to also make updates to my will to reflect my wishes for my digital accounts. That’s was recommended by a lawyer friend of mine.
QUESTION: What do y’all think? Have you added anything to your will?
10:15:34 From Shelley Murphy : I print them out once in a while
10:15:44 From Sharon Morrissey : I use one master pwd that unlocks Lastpass; and the family has that master pwd.
10:16:11 From Mary Lou Gravatt : When I joined a community computer club we were given an address book to keep our passwords.
10:16:19 From Valerie Lisk : I LOVE my Windowss 7!
10:16:24 From Marcia Philbrick : While working as a school Tech Coordinator, I started using KeyPass for passwords. I think another program is First Pass.
10:16:28 From DearMYRTLE . to All panelists : DASH LANE https://www.dashlane.com
10:16:28 From Rachel Evans to All panelists : All my kids know my computer login and I have a notebook with passwords for sites.
10:16:34 From Shelley Murphy : I have a binder that says “what you need to know”. Both of my kids know to look for it and they have all my passwords, etc.
10:16:54 From Marian Koalski : I ain’t tellin’ ya where I keep my passwords.
10:17:05 From DearMYRTLE . to All panelists : LAST PASS https://www.lastpass.com
10:17:30 From Marcia Philbrick : If you have photos on Flickr, it is now a monthly fee to maintain a pro account. Otherwise, you loose access to photos.
10:17:30 From Michelle Patient to All panelists : Microsoft ended mainstream support for Windows 7 on January 13, 2015, but extended support won’t end until January 14, 2020
10:17:38 From Cassandra Davis to All panelists : use Passible app
10:17:46 From Betty-Lu Burton : What does it mean not supporting Windows 7? I have windows 7 and cannot upgraded to windows 10
10:17:51 From Michelle Patient to All panelists : ref re Win7 https://home.bt.com/tech-gadgets/computing/windows-7/windows-7-support-end-11364081315419
10:18:10 From Cassandra Davis to All panelists : Site IDs, etc in yearly planner
10:18:16 From Doris Haskell : I have recently read a notice that password apps are being hacked. I keep mine somewhere else.
10:19:11 From Betty-Lu Burton : Ok Thank you. I have not needed any help with my windows 7 so I should be ok
10:19:41 From Marcia Philbrick : Discontinuing support for Windows 7 also means that patches for security issues won’t be available. We forget that all of those ‘Windows updates’ contain fixes for these security issues.
10:20:01 From Launa : If a win 7 that was updated to win 10 then what will not run zoom prog
10:20:08 From Betty-Lu Burton : Thank you Marcia
10:20:16 From Michelle Patient to All panelists : Snap Marcia – was about to say the same thing – security updates no longer available
10:21:50 From Marian Koalski : I guess it also means you can’t install malware on a Chromebook. Might be good for someone who has had that trouble in the past.
10:22:06 From Marcia Philbrick : My little laptop cost about $250. It has a small drive which means that I have to use the cloud or a USB drive for my data — BUT — I can have RootsMagic on my laptop.
10:22:11 From Devon Noel Lee : Jamboard is a whiteboard tool.
10:22:24 From Randy Seaver : I watched all of the Diahan Southard, Crista Cowan, Mike Mansfield and Jonny Perl livestreams, and part of Ron Tanner and Kris R’s livestreams. I watched the Wednesday and Thursday Keynote, but only the first part of Friday and Saturday.
10:23:31 From Bill West : I have a Lenovo ideapad notebook computer that was on sale for under $150. Not much memory but I use an external 1TB hard drive to store files.
10:28:14 From Devon Noel Lee : Do we join the meeting from our Zoom account rather than the link?
10:28:22 From Cousin Russ : Skype https://www.skype.com/en/
10:29:15 From Marcia Philbrick : Cousin Russ — Be thankful you have high speed Internet! I wouldn’t be able to run Skype without losing access to everything else.
10:30:12 From sherry vachio to All panelists : Zoom is iffy on my new laptop … weird sounds. I sign in thru the web.
10:30:53 From Marcia Philbrick : Ancestry ThruLines !!!!!!
10:30:56 From Devon Noel Lee : RootsMagic * is almost ready for Beta!!!!
10:30:57 From Shelley Murphy : The 2mil to the Museum
10:31:05 From Robbin Smith : for me dna clusters for myHeritage
10:31:17 From Betsey Cotter : Agree with Randy, TruLines.
10:31:21 From Bill West : Thrulines from Ancestry is the big news for me.
10:31:38 From Betty-Lu Burton : All the updates to DNA research on Ancestry and MyHeritage
10:31:44 From Michelle Patient : Overall it was the improving intergration of DNA results into Trees from both Ancestry and MH
10:32:02 From Valerie Lisk : Being able to group and color code your DNA matches on Ancestry.
10:32:14 From Doris Haskell : The biggest news for me was the International African American Museum and the $2 million donation by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Hearts will be healed.
10:32:21 From Louis Kessler : Yes, both Ancestry came out with ThruLines and MyHeritage came out with Theory of Family Relativity – effectively the same thing – on the same day.
10:32:48 From Randy Seaver : What did you learn about RootsMagic 8?
10:32:52 From Marcia Philbrick : I agree with Randy about Theory of Relativity. It didn’t pull up one of my known cousins. However, my ancestry is basically U.S. and I have more matches on Ancestry.
10:32:53 From Hilary Gadsby : I only had 3 but one is spot on according to the tree
10:33:01 From Betsey Cotter : I was VERY excited about the IAAM!
10:33:10 From Marcia Philbrick : The other Ancestry tools are also useful.
10:33:21 From Louis Kessler : I had 4 ThruLines (which were all correct and 2 were relatives I didn’t know had tested.) Theory of Family Relativity gave me nothing for both myself and my uncle.
10:33:41 From Linda Stufflebean : Has anyone else read Liane Jensen’s post about ThruLines and privacy? Apparently, living people can be seen in others’ trees. down the blog post.https://lianejensenresearch.com/2019/03/02/ancestrydna-thrulines/
10:33:43 From Mary Lou Gravatt : I like the new tagging tool on Ancestry. The TruLine are the same wrong information that was the hints.
10:33:45 From Michelle Patient : It was great to be in the room and watch Michael Moore’s face, I cried too cousin Pat
10:33:53 From Cousin Russ : MyHeritage’s THEORY OF FAMILY RELATIVITY https://blog.kittycooper.com/2019/02/myheritages-theory-of-family-relativity/
10:33:59 From Michelle Patient : I did
10:34:54 From Randy Seaver : My blog post about my “worst” Theory of Family Relativity connection is https://www.geneamusings.com/2019/03/myheritage-theory-of-family-relativity.html . One connection was a 20% confidence level.
10:35:31 From Devon Noel Lee : Randy – They’re very close to having RootsMagic 8 ready for launch. They are going to have an improved research log functionality, could be very helpful for writing client or certification reports.
They also will have the ability to edit citation template forms. [NOTE: They already have the ability to edit citation templates.] I haven’t wrapped my head around it enough to explain to another person, but I understood what was explained to me.
I don’t know everything but I’m hoping to be in the initial beta group because I’ve been chomping at the bit for RM 8.
10:35:32 From Louis Kessler : Tamura Jones says Theory of Family Relativity is misnamed, and it should be “Relationship Hypothesis” or “MyHypothesis”. https://twitter.com/TamuraJones/status/1100904754581045253
10:35:44 From Cousin Russ : Suggested Relationship Paths: An Inside Look at the Theory of Family Relativity™ webinar https://familytreewebinars.com/webinar_details.php?webinar_id=1051
10:35:59 From Randy Seaver : For both Ancestry and MyHeritage, the lack of well-populated trees is a problem
10:36:28 From Randy Seaver : I agree with Tamura on hypothesis – used the term in my first post about ToFR.
10:36:30 From Michelle Patient : From a scientific point of view, you have a hypothesis which you test and if it passes the tests it becomes a theory until a future test disproves it.
10:37:29 From Randy Seaver : right on, Michelle!
10:37:34 From Marcia Philbrick : ThruLines helped me find a sibling of an ancestor. I’m still chasing the documents – but so far, everything supports what was suggested by ThruLines.
10:37:40 From Devon Noel Lee : I also loved that Legacy Tree Webinars will have CLOSED CAPTIONS. (Can you tell I’m excited?!?!) [Yes, this feature was announced many weeks ago, and they have been true to their word, even going back gradually to previously recorded webinars.]
Additionally, LTW will be available in multiple languages – French, Finnish, and more.
10:37:41 From Graham Walter : good point Michelle
10:37:43 From Betty-Lu Burton : I need to upload an extension to my Norwegian line on MyHeritage. Do I just upload a Gedcom for that line and then can I link it to my existing tree?
10:38:00 From Janine Edmée Hakim : sorry for my internet connection deciding to drop out for a “New York minute”
10:38:22 From Michelle Patient : Blaine said the same thing in one of his talks at RT – aiming to disprove avoids confirmation bias.
10:38:26 From Michelle Patient : bias
10:39:34 From Cassandra Davis to All panelists : Is MH Theory of Relativity only for family not already in your tree? Only one for me was a known cousin was is not in my tree yet.
10:39:47 From Bill West : I check each common ancestor before accepting them. Many of them I can confirm because I’ve added many collateral branches and relatives to my Ancestry tree within the last year.
10:39:54 From Linda Stufflebean : See my comment above about Liane Jensen. People in private trees can apparently be seen in ThruLines.
10:40:01 From Marcia Philbrick : Crista said to ‘Attach trees’ — for everyone with unattached trees.
10:40:35 From Launa : what do we do on any online data base when we know for fact there is an adoption when data has in past been connected by adopted family?
10:40:57 From Marcia Philbrick : I thought ThruLines also used private trees IF they were searchable. I know I’ve seen PRIVATE on some of my ThruLines.
10:41:07 From Randy Seaver : Cassandra, yes, basically. It’s an attempt to help you understand how you might be related to your DNA match.It’s stuill a DNA match. If the theory is wrong, you still have the DNA match, but are related through some other path.
10:41:32 From Deb ANDREW to All panelists : TheuLine was wrong right out the gate, gave my half-brother the wrong father.
10:42:26 From Louis Kessler : The most exciting announcement I heard is that MyHeritage is beta testing it’s MyHeritage/FamilySearch Syncing. Currently it is only available to members of The Church. https://www.familysearch.org/partner/myheritage
10:42:48 From Randy Seaver : Marcia – Private can also mean that the person may be living, or not have a death date if less than about 110 years old.
10:43:23 From Randy Seaver : Louis – my understanding is that the MH/FS sync will only be for LDS members, not the public.
10:43:36 From Susan MacEwen to All panelists : the problem I have with ancestrys throughlines is that it no longer shows the others connected that you do not share DNA with. I wish they would still show the others who connect to a different “cousin” but not you.
10:44:04 From Jacqueline Wilson to All panelists : Does this work if you yourself have a private tree?
10:44:51 From Cassandra Davis to All panelists : Hard to keep up with all cousin’s children, and grandchildren. So, yes 5th cousins may not be on your tree. Good example.
10:45:53 From Michelle Patient : HI Launa – re adoptee linking – both companies are having some significant issues with this where a person has both biological and adoptive parents linked seems the adoptive parents are getting preference over bio lines. I have issues with both companies, my mother is unlinked from her adoptive parents (I unlinked them over a year ago) but only their lines are showing in our ThruLines and Theory of Relativity. Have tech support from both sites looking at it!
10:45:58 From Marcia Philbrick : Randy — My post, ThruLines Find contains a screenshot of what I assumed was a private tree: https://heartlandgenealogy.blogspot.com/2019/03/thrulines-find.html
10:46:19 From Randy Seaver : We also have a “number of Matches” problem – I have 51,000 on AncestryDNA, and “only” 6100 on MyHeritage. So, I have about 100 ThruLines and only 15 ToFR matches. Having DNA matches a well-populated tree is critical for both.
10:46:19 From Molly McKinley : Ancestry’s new ethnicity estimates has been updated. My new one took out my 29% Scandinavia and made it almost all United Kingdom and Ireland
10:46:51 From Louis Kessler : Randy: Hopefully that’s only temporary and they’ll eventually open the syncing to everybody.
10:46:58 From Devon Noel Lee : Michelle. I asked about the bio vs adoptive lines. I was told to put the adoptive trees in a separate ‘tree’ rather than the biological tree. Does that make sense?
Not a great fix but that was the answer I heard.
10:47:25 From Randy Seaver : My guess is that they are using our trees from months ago – not updated for several months – to do these analyses.
10:48:25 From Louis Kessler : Population of Norway = 5,233,000.
10:49:29 From Michelle Patient : Hi Devon, the big tree working behind the scenes is the issue – so yes this solution makes some sense but as long as any tree is on their site with a person linked to a line than it will affect the process. I am just disconnecting the adoptive branch but leaving it within the one tree
10:49:42 From Shelley Murphy : I been using Firefox for Ancestry it is not working good for Safari.
10:49:49 From Randy Seaver : Devon – thank you for the RM8 update. Interesting! Nothing about a cloud RootsMagic?
10:50:05 From Randy Seaver : FTM just announced a cloud FTM program.
10:50:24 From Michelle Patient : being a beta process I won’t be making major changes till the service has settled down
10:52:38 From Louis Kessler : An Autosomal test is better than a Y-DNA test to find father’s father
10:53:16 From Shelley Murphy : Big Y?
10:53:27 From Michelle Patient : Perfect solution 1. Test at Ancestry – upload to MH and FTDNA and test 2. Y at FTDNA if you need more evidence as unknown surnames are only confirmed about 30 – 60% of the time.
10:54:37 From Randy Seaver : the Y test will not find the actual “father” – only a surname group. There are not many Y-testers – hundreds of thousands, not milluions. An autosomal test is more likely to find the actual father or relative of the father IMHO
10:54:46 From Cassandra Davis to All panelists : My best rests have come from mtDNA (X?) tests and brothers YDNA tests, not autosomal. You never know.
10:55:28 From Michelle Patient : Unfortunately, it is a bug in the big tree index they create from Ancestry our trees. [Michelle, can you provide more info about this? We would like to test it out.]
10:55:32 From Cassandra Davis to All panelists : sorry My best results. Did not check my self checker.
10:56:12 From Michelle Patient : Agree with you pat, it was great – they listened to us
10:57:30 From Randy Seaver : Bravo!!!! You did good, Pat. Happy to hear her mouth dropped. Hopefully she will respond
10:57:37 From Marcia Philbrick : THANK YOU DearMYRTLE!!!!
10:57:38 From Marian Koalski : Thanks, Pat!
10:58:10 From Michelle Patient : Had a similar experience when I raised points with her…
10:58:10 From Debbie Moore : Bravo Pat!
10:58:22 From Randy Seaver : she needs to read Michael John Neill’s blog too – he finds lots of screwy things
10:58:29 From Shelley Murphy : Bravo! You are awesome.
10:58:35 From Linda Stufflebean : I was told by an Ancestry tech person that the team reads Randy’s posts every day although they don’t like it!!!
10:58:51 From Marian Koalski : It’s worrisome that it seemed to be news to the Ancestry CEO.
10:58:59 From Michelle Patient : She is new Marian
10:59:06 From Randy Seaver : Linda Stufflebean asked questions of several Ancestry staff at the exhibit – and got answers. I hope she blogs about it.
10:59:08 From Jim Everhart : Ancestry has been told by me that the same data from a gedcom gets ignored but if you enter it manually in the AMT that get used in DNA Circles????
11:00:00 From Linda Stufflebean : I will leave the blogging up to you Randy. Most were your questions. However, I am well write about census search engine issues.
11:00:08 From Michelle Patient : This CEO is changing the company culture to listening
11:00:18 From Marian Koalski : Yes, she’s new, but hundreds of people have reported it to her in response to that initial Ancestry blog post she wrote.
11:00:31 From Michelle Patient : Like pricing in each region is a huge problem and membership loyalty
11:00:32 From Randy Seaver : 12 years ago we had the same problem with Ancestry…
11:01:04 From Linda Stufflebean : I flat out told several Ancestry people that the company doesn’t value long term subscribers.
11:01:22 From Graham Walter : Margaret Georgiadis was previous CEO of Mattel, Inc.; also director of McDonald’s.
11:01:38 From Michelle Patient : They asked us to make one suggestion each –
11:01:49 From Michelle Patient : HA HA HA – we filled out MANY cards didnt we
11:03:18 From Jacqueline Wilson to All panelists : YEAH for MAC!
11:03:20 From Marian Koalski : Yay, native for Macs!
11:03:30 From Cassandra Davis to All panelists : It was nice they offered the RootsTech offer to #NotAtRootsTech folks.
11:03:39 From Shelley Murphy : I have Roots Magic and it’s on my MAC
11:03:50 From Jacqueline Wilson to All panelists : Will this happen any time soon with Legacy.
11:03:53 From Deb ANDREW : Yea
11:04:09 From Shelley Murphy : I have 7.03
11:04:15 From Devon Noel Lee : Randy… I don’t know if they’re going to have Cloud service, we’ll have to see. [NOTE: RootsMagic has the ability to create a website based on your RM data.]
11:04:30 From Pat Kuhn : I have Roots Magic on my MAC also
11:04:39 From Yolanda Sanders to All panelists : Is Root magic better than Legacy?
11:04:46 From Cassandra Davis to All panelists : RootsMagic on iOS tablets and phone! Yeah.
11:05:19 From Valerie Lisk : Will RootsMagic be able to work on a Kindle?
11:05:22 From Jacqueline Wilson to All panelists : Roots Magic for Mac is not native. It has a special software like wine to make it work on the Mac
11:05:24 From Shelley Murphy : Awesome!
11:05:54 From Randy Seaver : Was there a press release for the FTM announcement?
11:06:11 From Randy Seaver : I only saw the FB post DM posted
11:06:55 From DearMYRTLE . to All panelists : Latest FTM announcement https://www.facebook.com/groups/DearMYRTLE/permalink/10161535377065374/
11:07:09 From DearMYRTLE . to All panelists : Randy, FTM doesn’t do press releases
11:07:21 From DearMYRTLE . to All panelists : FTM posts in it’s FTMUsers Group on FB
11:07:34 From David Farstead to All panelists : Will the FTM Tree Vault make it easier/safer to use the same FTM file on different computers (e.g. desktop and laptop)? [Until Tree Vault is available, we won’t be able to test it out and discover the true answer for you David.]
11:08:03 From Michelle Patient : There wasn’t a PR – I went many times to the stand asking for one – they only had the printed cards which they turned into a post after the last time I visited and said they really needed some PR material for us to share
11:08:17 From Randy Seaver : will the Tree Vault be interactive – if I change in desktop FTM will the Tree Vault FTM get it immediately?
11:08:51 From Graham Walter : and I think Tree Vault allows for the passing of the tree to other family members when you pass-on
11:09:38 From Marcia Philbrick : Cousin Russ — What I heard in the Family Search session was that the download of profiles would only be available for church members. It didn’t sound like I would be able to use that capability.
11:09:40 From Michelle Patient : Yes the passing on feature was very nice
11:11:02 From Michelle Patient : Newer genies don’t seem to realize that you can use a stand alone database programme.
11:13:50 From Michelle Patient : If you are on FB here is the photo of the announcement https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10215582653752063
11:13:51 From Leah Smith to All panelists : Will there be a limit to the number of trees you can have in Tree Vault? Or will there just be a data amount limit? [We could say. That’s a question for MacKiev.]
11:15:41 From Cousin Russ : Be sure to read: Elizabeth Shown Mills, “How Careful Are You When Imaging Documents?” blog post, QuickTips: The Blog @ Evidence Explained (https://www.evidenceexplained.com/quicktips/how-careful-are-you-when-imaging-documents : posted 24 February 2019).
11:16:13 From Gary Gauthier to All panelists : While you’re talking software… I’ve released MetaProxy for the Mac v0.1 (There is also a video on the FB forum).
11:16:29 From Cousin Russ : Suggested Relationship Paths: An Inside Look at the Theory of Family Relativity™ webinar https://familytreewebinars.com/webinar_details.php?webinar_id=1051
11:16:55 From Cousin Russ : New edition GENEALOGY STANDARDS includes DNA standards. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/168442352X
11:17:02 From Shelley Murphy : I am going to order the standards book as well
11:17:05 From Betty-Lu Burton : I have it on pre-order too
11:17:23 From Cousin Russ : GPS flow chart https://www.genealogyexplained.com/basics/genealogical-proof-standard
11:17:42 From Cassandra Davis to All panelists : DNA Painter webinar of Legacy Family Tree Webinars upcoming.
11:18:29 From Graham Walter : Gary: is the Mac Metaproxy in the ‘standard’ Dropbox folder or a separate one?
11:18:48 From Dave Robison to All panelists : I was taught by the Palmer method in the 50s and 60’s
11:19:09 From Cousin Russ : Genealogy Game Night – 23 March 2019 at 9pm Eastern US. More info at: http://dearmyrtle.com/blog2/index.php/2019/03/03/save-the-date-genealogy-game-night-23-march-2019
11:19:16 From Gary Gauthier to All panelists : Graham; It’s in a different Dropbox folder, but Tony put the link on his blog.
