01:25:15 Ann Royal: Cousin Russ, could this happen because in some census, you only got the one person and not the other members of the tree? And the only way to fix it was to keep the other hints???
01:25:50 RandySeaver: Maqrcia Philbrick – any subscriber can find your Public Member Trees from the member connect.
01:27:30 Renate Sanders: That feature never works for me, though, Myrt.
01:27:30 Marian Koalski: Member Connect is specifically blocked for non-paying users.
01:27:47 Yvonne Demoskoff: Member Connect can be accessed from a profile under “Facts”
01:28:20 Joanne Shackford Parkes: Member Connect is very helpful to find others researching the same person so we can collaborate! Also great for finding those with DNA matches! Great Ancestry feature.
01:28:59 Marian Koalski: Member Connect is blocked for users of the Library Edition.
01:31:38 Marcia Philbrick: I’m not sure the path to member connect thru the hints will help someone else find my tree since my tree isn’t indexed. I doubt it will show up with member connect.
01:31:41 Joanne Shackford Parkes: Find FamilySearch very family based – i.e. easy to link a census source to all members of the family but have always found Ancestry very individual based, not family based. Am also finding many many duplicate sources lately but think this is because they had sources and then add the same source from FamilySearch so you get the same “source” multiple times.
01:34:07 Marian Koalski: But non-paying members can’t add an Ancestry source.
01:36:20 Renate Sanders: I also get a lot of hints for records I’ve already attached to the person
01:36:43 Cousin Russ: Hilary Gadsby https://gadsbyfamilyancestors.blogspot.co.uk/2018/01/week-2-52-ancestors-in-52-weeks.html
01:37:03 Cousin Russ: Hilary Gadsby Book of Me Returs – http://worldwidegenealogy.blogspot.co.uk/2018/01/book-of-me-returns.html
01:37:22 Joanne Shackford Parkes: Find the duplicate source info especially in Massachusetts records – the original record, the alphabetized index, and the typed version of the same (or very similar) material.
01:39:33 june butka: I’ve did the earlier Book of Me. I already did three post for this year. I’m hoping to do better this time.
01:41:50 RandySeaver: I’ have a 20 page biography about my life experiences in a Word file on my computer. I wrote my own obituary (it was pretty long!) for an Saturday Night Genealogy Fun post.
01:42:27 Jacqueline Wilson: I have heard of the Morning pages (write 3 pages each morning) from Julia Cameron, The Artist’s Way: http://juliacameronlive.com/basic-tools/morning-pages/
01:43:16 Lisa Gorrell: I did some posts from an earlier Book of Me. This year I’m working on 52 Ancestors across both of my blogs.
01:44:13 Marian Koalski: At Christmas, my sister and I found my mother’s 12 years of report cards
01:44:56 Cheri Passey: Precious photos! Thanks for sharing, Hilary!
01:45:15 Danine Cozzens: Julia Cameron also has a memoir tool and book: http://juliacameronlive.com/2017/10/07/the-memoir-tool/
01:46:45 Mary Lou Gravatt: My favorite picture of parents is from 1954 when we went on a picnic in a farmers field along the Delaware River, in PA. We had a pickup truck and would sit in the back to eat our lunch. Many great memories and I took the picture when I was 9 years old.
01:46:45 june butka: Here is mine from 2015 Do Over https://damegussie.wordpress.com/2015/01/16/wk2genealogydooverblog-self-obituary-interview/
01:47:19 Bill West: Good lord, I’m not doing my obituary.First, because it would probably only be 2 paragraphs, and second, i’m not rushing it.
01:47:24 HilaryGadsby: http://www.whodoyouthinkyouaremagazine.com/news/over-79600-pdf-certificates-ordered-gro-extends-pilot
01:47:34 Valerie Eichler Lair: Write your own obituary! A way to make sure those left behind will “get it right!” I have my Beginner students write their obituary as an assignment. In all the years doing this, I’ve only had 1 that was not comfortable doing one.
01:48:53 RandySeaver: I’ve used Wordless Wednesday meme to highlight and discuss family pictures – #499 this week.
01:48:54 Ann Royal: I am gearing back up to blogging every day. Now, I will have more posts to add. My Nana, my mother’s mother wrote her own obituary. It was the one we used for the newspaper
01:50:01 RandySeaver: My obituary is going to cost the estate a bundle, I fear.
01:50:29 Marian Koalski: But Randy, think of what it will do for history!
01:51:19 june butka: The Mrs. Butka paragraph was written with assistance of a friend. From her point of view.
01:51:35 Cousin Russ: Game Night 10 pm Eastern PLUSWORD with Michael Daniels and this is the specific link for Friday night https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5CXqYA5kn5Y
01:53:36 Renate Sanders: Sorry, I got a call. Is that tonight?
01:53:49 Renate Sanders: Oh, Friday. Thanks.
01:54:09 Renate Sanders: I was just talking to True. Do you need her?
01:54:13 Cousin Russ: Join Cousin Russ and DearMYRTLE as we play “Pluswords” on GAME NIGHT with Sir Michael Daniels on Friday, 19 Jan 2018 starting at 10pm Eastern.

02:00:25 Melissa Barker: Nicka’s webinar was fantastic!
02:01:58 DearMYRTLE: http://www.whoisnickasmith.com/blackprogen/

02:03:12 Renate Sanders: My blog is Into the LIGHT at http://www.justthinking130.blogspot.com
02:06:57 june butka: Wow. What a treasure. A special memorial to be truely cherished.
02:07:05 Cheri Passey: Poweful!
02:07:57 Mary Sharon Wilmes: Perhaps this change is related to Ancestry ownership of DNA data and person matching in Ancestry now they are joined. Step by step database cleanup for the next sale or sale of a product.
02:08:35 Dawn Carlile: Top right by your round picture

“Super hangout! Wonderful clarity and big screen is awesome since I can actually see it now. Thanks!”

Thank-you for that feedback from Donna Burleaud. Cousin Russ and I certainly love the new Zoom webinar interface, even as Ol’ Myrt here is learning to use the host controls for spotlighting panelists and their screen shares. Of special note this week, we feature Daniel Horowitz, Chief Genealogist at MyHeritage who talked about DNA and the expanded MyHeritage webinar offerings for 2018. We also visited with Fiona Fitzsimons to learn more about the APG Britain, Ireland and the Isles Chapter[of the Association of Professional Genealogists. Its a virtual chapter with a Twitter, YouTube and Facebook presence. You’ll find the annotated typed chat with links we mentioned below this embedded video recording.

We hope that the new social media channels will bring the chapter together online, so that our members have better access. We also hope to use the channels to circulate webinars/ podcasts for CPD, localised to our region. The first podcast is already posted on YouTube and FB. It’s a moderated discussion between Chris Paton (The Genes Blog/ @BritishGenes) and Lorna Moloney (Clans & Surnames @merrimanresearch). Our next CPD event will take place shortly, details to be announced. The channels can found as follows:

01:14:59 Barbara Gressel: Pat, last week, two people who I adore did DNA tests and found 1/2 siblings. One is excited to meet a new sibling. The other is crushed to learn about thier father’s extra curricular activities. Not all DNA tests are well-received. I’m not sure how I would have felt if faced with the same situation.
01:18:32 Daniel Horowitz: …. and you can upload for FREE your raw DNA from any of those companies to https://www.myheritage.com/dna/upload
01:18:49 Dave Robison: I’ve tested with LivingDNA.

01:41:33 Bill West: I’m sticking with the 52 Ancestors., which I usuallyam running behind on.
01:44:05 Randy Seaver: will the Zoom Webinar Chat be saved somewhere?
01:45:30 Hilary Gadsby: You can save chat by going to more

01:52:11 Robbin Smith: but as a non panelist i still do not see the same options as russ has
01:52:12 Jacqueline Wilson: My More button just disappeared. But before that it said something about merging not saving chat?
01:52:15 Fiona Fitzsimons: Oops, think I sent my response to Cousing Russ! Good to know you’re there. This is a fun format, I must listen in again. F
01:52:26 Danine Cozzens: The pop out is a diagonal arrow which disappears once you check it….

01:58:01 Cyndy Bray: don’t see a small v
01:58:11 Marcia Philbrick: The entire chat can be selected and then copy/paste can be used to save the chat. Not ideal — but does keep the info
01:59:24 Monique Riley: Good idea Marcia!
01:59:57 Valerie Lisk: I would like the entire chat because in trying to register,, I shut off the wifi and it took me an hour to figure it out. Then didn’t have audio.

02:03:52 Danine Cozzens: Cindy, the small v at top left appears in one mode and not another, depending on whether the chat is full size or not. Modern “minimalist” screen design…

800DearMYRTLE hangouts

It’s hard to believe we are celebrating 800 DearMYRTLE hangouts during Mondays with Myrt on 4 Dec 2017. I couldn’t possibly have done this without great panel participants and of course, my real-life Cousin Russ. Thank-you to all who have made these hangouts so fun – even though we are learning sticky wicket things like citation samples and advanced genealogical research methodologies. Here’s the December lineup:
