What a crazy morning we had at the world-famous Family History Library in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah. This webinar brought together professional genealogists and DNA experts from all over the world. We send out a big thank-you to Roger Moffatt, our camera person, as well as Graham Walter and Mr. Myrt who cycled guests in and out of our production booth. Cousin Russ held down the fort with the Zoom webinar technology, and Randy Seaver located every link we mentioned, so Ol’ Myrt here could concentrate on the interviews. As you can see, a good time was had by all.

10:04:19 From Sheryl Zeringue to All panelists : Hello from South Louisiana.
10:04:38 From Gary Gauthier to All panelists : Gary Gauthier here from “Oh so cold Calgary, Alberta -27C)
10:05:05 From Randy Seaver to All panelists : I’m not seeing he people on the big screen
10:05:29 From Cousin Russ to All panelists : Randy – you won’t
10:05:35 From Tony Proctor to All panelists : I have an unusual tale of tracing living relatives that folks might find amusing 🙂
10:05:48 From Cousin Russ to All panelists : Its a chicklet in the Webinar
10:05:51 From Randy Seaver to All panelists : oh…why not?
10:06:14 From Graham Walter : Hi Gary: 8 in London
10:06:50 From Betty-Lu Burton : Good day everyone
10:07:02 From Cousin Russ : https://westmagenealogy.com/
10:07:20 From Hilary Gadsby to All panelists : Hi Tony
10:08:18 From Yvonne Demoskoff : Here’s some Canadian news: the 1926 Prairie Provinces census can now be browsed at FamilySearch (Gail Dever of Genealogy a la Carte announced it on her blog this morning)
10:09:18 From Janine Edmée Hakim : One word guys….Instant Pot
10:11:29 From Cousin Russ : One Pot Meals for Busy Genealogists Facebook Group https://www.facebook.com/groups/OnePotMeals4BusyGenealogists/
10:11:57 From Tony Proctor to All panelists : My stomach is starting to rumble now …
10:12:59 From Graham Walter : This is so cruel this close to meal time 🙂
10:14:27 From Randy Seaver : when can we order these meals from MyrtDash or WendyDash?
10:17:08 From Hilary Gadsby : I have the old style pressure cooker that I use.
10:17:45 From Graham Walter to All panelists : Judy Russel link https://www.legalgenealogist.com/2019/02/01/opening-the-dna-floodgates/
10:19:20 From Wendy Gunderson to All panelists : Portable Soup- you can find almost anything on Wikipedia! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portable_soup
10:19:49 From Michelle Minner : I was angry, because they changed their terms of service with no notice!
10:19:53 From Doris Haskell : Don’t they have to have a warrant? And isn’t it on a case-by-case basis?
10:20:00 From Shelby Bender to All panelists : Big brothers is always there…in today’s world with the internet we are just better at keeping up with the changes.
10:20:04 From cyndy Bray : Don’t know about anyone else, but I’m not happy
10:20:46 From Gary Gauthier to All panelists : This is why I haven’t had my DNA tested. It was bound to happen sooner or later.
10:20:47 From Shelley Murphy : I am angry about it. That is not what I signed up for.
10:20:52 From John Laws to All panelists : like to join the panel
10:21:20 From Shelby Bender to All panelists : If we OPT out now, does that take away the information that they already have?
10:21:49 From John Laws : breach of contract?
10:22:21 From Cousin Russ : John, you ARE on the Panel
10:22:35 From Randy Seaver : all they have is the match data. FBI or LE isn’t getting anyone’s raw DNA. They are seeing matches like all of us see.
10:22:44 From Michelle Minner : I totally agree, I don’t mind sharing my DNA (especially for law enforcement)…I don’t like not being asked…and not being told that they were going to open up the information.
10:23:37 From John Laws : thank you sir
10:23:55 From Randy Seaver : GEDmatch didn’t change their TOS until it was revealed that LE was using it after the Golden State Killer event.
10:23:58 From Tony Proctor to All panelists : I agree about the T&C being changed without notice. I’d be happy to share results with law enforcement, but can you guarantee that’s where it stops? There are people who do not agree as a matter of principle, but suppose that insurance companies got access
10:24:26 From Wendy Gunderson to All panelists : Hilary, I hope you’ll come to the Facebook group and share your expertise with pressure cooking. It’s intimidating for so many new users.
10:24:27 From Hilary Gadsby : Even if they mentioned it previously they should have told everyone when this change was being made.
10:25:23 From Michelle Minner : is user anyone at all? or is user a paid subscription? I need definitions to feel more comfortable
10:25:30 From Hilary Gadsby to Wendy Gunderson and all panelists : I am in the facebook group so happy to share what I can.
10:26:11 From Sheryl Whisenhunt : bushwhacked aka sidelined aka snookered aka backdoored
10:26:25 From John Laws : makes you wonder who else gets to take a look perhaps russian security?
10:27:51 From Marian Koalski : Maybe we should ask ourselves about all kinds of online services: “Are we letting someone else hold our wallet?” (Or other private or treasured asset?)
10:29:42 From John Laws : I don’t see how the EU thing applies outside Europe we get out when we leave
10:29:53 From Graham Walter : Clarity of communication is what is needed
10:30:14 From Michelle Minner : I WAS surprised by an NPE, and I don’t want to share that DNA, by the request of the family member that doesn’t want anyone to know about the NPE involving her DNA test. However, I don’t like the company changing it without notice. I only opted out for that one DNA test.
10:30:49 From Betty-Lu Burton : I think people do not understand that law enforcement must still do a lot of leg work. The DNA does not give them a definite match until after the detective work
10:31:35 From Linda Stufflebean : I am not happy about ftDNA’s sneaky method, although I don’t mind them using my DNA to catch criminals either. On the other hand, given the adage that once something is online, we lose control of it fits here so it sadly isn’t all that surprising.
10:32:12 From Randy Seaver : two sets of detective work – first to find descendants of a common ancestor, second to sort out the descendants to find the right person.
10:33:48 From Graham Walter : Can you send some chicken over to London?
10:34:47 From Cousin Russ : https://blog.findmypast.co.uk/findmypast-friday-february-1st-2627629109.html
10:35:11 From Wendy Gunderson to All panelists : Graham, maybe we can invent a new “portable” chicken app!
10:35:15 From DearMYRTLE . to All panelists : FIND MY PAST APP for smart phones https://blog.findmypast.com/findmypast-app-2623284760.html
10:35:47 From Graham Walter : FMP blog link – https://blog.findmypast.co.uk/findmypast-friday-february-1st-2627629109.html
10:36:08 From Cousin Russ : FIND MY PAST APP for smart phones https://blog.findmypast.com/findmypast-app-2623284760.html
10:36:18 From Cousin Russ : FMP blog link – https://blog.findmypast.co.uk/findmypast-friday-february-1st-2627629109.html
10:36:27 From John Laws : I have a beef with FMP my membership of Ancestry shows up regardless whether I go on dot co uk or dot com but doesn’t work with FMP
10:36:29 From DearMYRTLE . to All panelists : Thank-you, Graham.
10:36:43 From Hilary Gadsby : I am waiting for the records in Southampton, England to be online as my 2xgt grandparents married in the catholic church and their family were catholics.
10:37:47 From Graham Walter to All panelists : Wendy: good idea!
10:40:56 From John Laws : Not all registries or churches give permission to digitizing of their records and some churches haven’t released their records to the county record offices yet and still keep them in cold damp vestries
10:42:22 From Robbin Smith : What irritates me is that *not* all the records from St. Peters on Staten Island have been added and of course that those are the records I need
10:45:56 From Janine Edmée Hakim : the borough of Manhattan is New York County
10:45:56 From Graham Walter : FindMyPast datasets for U.S. records https://search.findmypast.co.uk/historical-records?page=1®ion=united%20states%20%26%20canada&searchedrecordsetname=
10:46:35 From Cathy Naborowski : FMP has an agreement with these Archdiocese. Jen Baldwin did a great webinar – I think on FMP a whle back talking about the process they are going through.
10:46:45 From Randy Seaver : My guess is that when Josh Taylor was with FMP he tried to contract digitizing the church records that FamilySearch doesn’t have.
10:47:24 From Robbin Smith : I did send an email to FMP and they said they will be updated .. still waiting
10:47:27 From John Laws : surprised just how many children are registered without the father’s name and the mother and child have the same surname since WWI. Of course we had always had illegitimacy
10:47:30 From Dave Robison to All panelists : Fading away! Battery warning…. See you all next week…
10:48:02 From Graham Walter : have a good day Dave
10:48:28 From John Laws : they consider the records to be their personal records how dare you want to know anything
10:48:40 From Hilary Gadsby : Not sure if catholics do transcripts in the UK
10:49:36 From Yvonne Demoskoff : Pat, I’ve had some success walking into a church’s office and speaking with the secretary. I was able to view my grandfather’s baptism record (1889) in Quebec that way.
10:50:56 From Randy Seaver : This is a great example of how “not everything is online.” There will never be “all records online.”
10:50:57 From John Laws : maybe the mice had thanksgiving lunch on the records
10:51:56 From Shelby Bender to All panelists : Find My Past is a subscription site??
10:52:08 From Randy Seaver : yes Shelby
10:52:19 From Cousin Russ : FindMyPast Blog https://blog.findmypast.com/
10:52:31 From Shelby Bender to All panelists : Ok – have an account already registered, but it wants more $$
10:52:40 From Graham Walter : Some of the pages launch your smartphone browser but if it’s you online tree it’s sync to phone
10:53:03 From Randy Seaver : and FMP now accesses the FamilySearch Family Tree to help find common ancestors for DNA matches.
10:55:13 From Graham Walter : You can also do Newspapers directly at British NEwspaper Archives https://www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk/
10:58:12 From Randy Seaver : Ancestry Search Engine Problems from my correspondent – link is https://www.geneamusings.com/2019/01/a-readers-take-on-ancestrycom-problems_30.html
11:00:08 From Wendy Gunderson to All panelists : This is annoying to hear, but I’m glad I’m not going crazy.
11:01:20 From Valerie Lisk : I liked the HeritageQuest search engine before Ancestry bought them. You could browse on the County level or you could browse by Institution.
11:04:51 From Tony Proctor to All panelists : Moving from 32-bit to 64-bit software is not the only way of solving this. That’s a little like a sledgehammer to crack a nut.
11:07:24 From Cousin Russ : RootsMagichttps://rootsmagic.com/
11:10:13 From Cousin Russ : discussion of Tony Proctor’s MetaProxy program https://www.facebook.com/groups/DearMYRTLE/permalink/10161407529775374

11:21:45 From Tony Proctor to All panelists : Dia is another similar generic drawing package for data relationship diagrams. The SVG designer is far simpler, and free, but Windows specific
11:22:20 From Hilary Gadsby : My favourite for the UK is http://www.genuki.org.uk/
11:23:09 From Graham Walter : Genuki – Definitely a good one!
11:23:21 From Cousin Russ : One of my favorites for Florida interest – Florida Memory Project – http://www.floridamemory.com

11:30:44 From Brenda J. Williams to All panelists : Can you put the New York Historical Society link for Will Abstracts in the chat.
11:36:38 From Tony Proctor : When Google+ goes, so will many of the Blogger comments (if you have a blogspot)
11:37:34 From Randy Seaver : Can we get on the panel that day at FHL?
11:40:34 From Randy Seaver : I never had many commenters from Google+ to my blog posts.
11:41:01 From Randy Seaver : extraordinary webinars…

11:51:01 From Cousin Russ : Daughters of the American Revolution https://www.dar.org/
11:55:28 From Mary Buchholz to All panelists : I definitely think there is interest in Tony’s software and it is something a person needs to heard more than once.
We consider logical research patterns as one would transition from an Ancestry Member Tree to digital records on FamilySearch.org. Participate in an unscripted, open discussion hosted by DearMYRTLE’s very distant cousin Annie Oakmont.
00:40:54 Betty-Lu Burton: It also shows the Cousin Russ is aware that FamilySearch and Ancestry have different records group
00:43:44 Betty-Lu Burton: You can also look in the 1871 and 1881 census. Both would show the family he was living with, place of birth and religion 00:51:50 Betty-Lu Burton: The Canadian Censuses has been indexed just like the USA Census Records.
Betty-Lu Burton: Unless he came with his parents, their name would not be listed on his border crossing record
01:02:25 Deb Andrew: Just don’t ask Siri if there are any airplanes over your location!
01:02:51 Betty-Lu Burton: Do you know when and where he was married? Marriage records might give you information on parents
01:06:40 Betty-Lu Burton: Have you considered that Herbert’s parents were not married and McAlister is his mother’s maiden name or McAlister is his father’s surname and Johnston his mother’s maiden name
01:11:03 Betty-Lu Burton: You might try looking for Herbert in the 1871 census to see if he is listed with his parents now or with another family. This might help decide if his parents may have been dead in 1861. It would also tell you if he is still with the same family
01:14:21 Betty-Lu Burton: Modern gun hunting starts Saturday here in Arkansas
01:19:16 Deb Andrew: You had the most interesting Fudge Pie Recipe.
01:25:38 Betty-Lu Burton: Stamp number is the page in the book, the image number is where it is (the page) on the microfilm
01:27:53 Betty-Lu Burton: Could you have looked in the land records to find out when the land was sold for the probate and would not that give you a better idea of when the probate happened?
01:30:12 Deb Andrew: I put surname first followed by state, county and then date.
1:34:09 Deb Andrew: I had a grand uncle who had to register for World War I will he was at Wetumpka State Prison, in Alabama.
01:34:21 Betty-Lu Burton: The register of prisoners should also be in the catalogue listed as item 2 on the microfilm
01:36:09 Betty-Lu Burton: some of the microfilms can have several different items that are not related, but each one is listed in the catalogue with the item number. Or at least it was like this before everything was digitized.
10:13:50 From Cousin Russ : SAMPLE from the Internet Archive – https://web.archive.org/web/20180415052612/https://www.evidenceexplained.com/
10:14:23 From Melinda Culpon : getting the books from library sites is what I did
10:15:03 From Melinda Culpon : Texas was a map from the glo – really fun
10:18:33 From Molly McKinley : I have Goldens from Madison County, Alabama
10:19:23 From Rebecca Williams : When going to a new area to research, you might be able to find a guide to the library’s genealogy collection online at LibGuides. https://community.libguides.com/
10:21:45 From Rebecca Williams : https://guides.hmcpl.org/c.php?g=790531&p=5656729 this link will take you to the Genealogy, History and Archives at Huntsville Madison County Public Library: Local and State History libGuide.
10:48:33 From Cousin Russ : Cyndi’s List https://www.cyndislist.com/
10:49:00 From Deb Andrew to All panelists : I use Evernote and have a section called Toolbox, that is divided into main website for those topics. I also have one for Genealogy Tips and Tricks, and then just Genealogy general.
10:51:57 From Deb Andrew to All panelists : In the tool box has one the localities.
10:52:27 From DearMYRTLE : Do you want to do this tonight on WACKY Wednesday?
10:52:49 From Roxanne Cummings Basey to All panelists : Could I ask why Evernote over Word?
10:52:52 From Cousin Russ : Sure
10:52:56 From Melinda Culpon : I use both – one note interface “thinks” like me
10:53:34 From Roxanne Cummings Basey to All panelists : Thank you
10:53:45 From Deb Andrew: Evernote can do the screen capture right into it and also syncs to the Ipad.
10:53:56 From Melinda Culpon : clipping feature both is my main
10:54:19 From Melinda Culpon : use for both programs
10:55:21 From Roxanne Cummings Basey to All panelists : Oh cool
10:55:25 From Deb Andrew to All panelists : I do the e-mail thing a lot.
10:55:49 From DearMYRTLE I’d use EXCEL but in Google Sheet form because of cloud technology. (Not dependent on this machine.)
10:57:47 From Cousin Russ : Combined AmericaGen Study Group Chapter 6 homework https://drive.google.com/file/d/12Ply1IPbDglkEOFigMi9bhaRvwaZRRlJ/view?usp=sharing
10:58:54 From Danine Cozzens : Thanks everyone!
