Friday, 20 Apr 2018 – 10pm Eastern US – PLUSWORD. Cousin Russ and DearMYRTLE will be guest participants. Sir Michael Daniels is our illustrious host. No need to register – just click the link to watch and comment via YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zuZNAh-ONhg
21 Apr 2018 Genealogy Game Night We’re playing “Who’s In My Line?” designed to spotlight our ancestors. He or she doesn’t have to be famous. Try to get the panel to guess his/her occupation, location, place in history or ??? and YES, Michael Daniels will be our host for this very special event. 9pm Eastern US (New York), 8pm Central US (Chicago), 7pm Mountain US (Denver, Salt Lake City), 6pm Pacific US (Los Angeles)
We’re playing Cousin Russ’ “Who’s In My Line?” where a panelist posts a challenge about an ancestor, and the panelists try to guess with no more than 20 incorrect answers. We trust the attendees to come up with some suggestions.
Originally we thought Game Night would make it less stressful for people to try coming up on the panel, testing out their headset earphones and mic. What’s emerged is a fun way to think outside the ‘fill in the blank’ boxes our genealogy software encourages.

New followers may benefit from our ESM’s Quick Lesson Study Group wherein we discussed the works of Elizabeth Shown Mills. Our syllabus material included the QuickLessons located at EvidenceExplained.com. Study group panel participants prepared in advance for each session, submitting homework describing how the principles discussed in that week’s specific QuickLesson have and or will have an impact in our own genealogical research. Embedded below is the YouTube version (without comments and notes). It is in “playlist format” meaning when one video has played, then next on the list will begin automatically. If you wish to view the video and all comments/links posted during the live hangout, that listing appears below the playlist video.
Over the years DearMYRTLE here has hosted several groups studying Thomas W. Jones, Mastering Genealogical Proof (Arlington, Virginia: National Genealogical Society, 2013). The book is available from the publisher at http://www.ngsgenealogy.org/cs/mastering_genealogical_proof , also available in Kindle format through Amazon.com. Below find the embedded video of MGP Study Group 3 in playlist format, from DearMYRTLE’s YouTube Channel. Below the viewer is the list of chapters with links to the previous two study group series.
Dr. Jones’ book also includes the following:
Appendix A – Pritchett Article
Appendix B – McLain Article
Reading and Source List
Answers to exercises (Yup! The answers are at the end of the book.)
“Without adequate documentation, a well-researched family history or tree looks like fiction. Mastering Genealogical Documentation teaches genealogists how to cite all kinds of sources clearly, completely, and accurately—including sources for which no model citation exists.” Source: The publisher – NGS.
Panel participants will review Dr. Jones’ homework examples but will post examples from their own research to illustrate points outlined in the focus chapter that speak to them.
Regarding homework: Do as our panelists, who are tasked with taking one part of each chapter that “speaks” to them and submitting that as homework rather than infringing on copyright by working through Dr. Jones’ homework for each chapter. The answers are at the end of the book.
Ol’ Myrt here recommends doing the homework even if you are not a panelist. Hangout viewer Tami Crandall writes “I’ve watched classes before where I was too busy to do the reading and homework […]. I didn’t get as much out of the hangout by just watching.” [Emphasis added.]
We reap what we sow.
Happy family tree climbing!
Your friend in genealogy.
