In which we discuss GEDMatch’s new terms of service, Norwegian Constitution Day (May 17th), MyHeritage’s new “Health” DNA test and the new Sunday and Monday hours for the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah.
10:03:10 From Holly Hansen : New Family History Library Hours https://media.familysearch.org/family-history-library-to-add-sunday-and-longer-monday-hours-to-schedule/
10:06:50 From Randy Seaver : GEDMatch Terms of Service at https://genesis.gedmatch.com/tos_read.php
10:08:50 From Doris Haskell : I’m staying with GEDmatch. I don’t like what they did, but I’m staying.
10:09:55 From Kathleen Daetsch to All panelists : I was under the impression, when I joined, that it was wide open and I know that I could see the matches of my matches who did not match me.
10:10:22 From Randy Seaver : I just opted in for the LE matching at GedMatch.
10:10:48 From Danine Cozzens : I manage DNA kits for several relatives so that might be inappropriate for me to make that decision. Would like to hear others’ thoughts.
10:11:22 From jeannecourval : If you opt in, can you later opt out?
10:11:34 From Kathleen Daetsch to All panelists : I checked with the person I manage first
10:12:21 From Kathleen Daetsch to All panelists : I only manage one at this time.
10:12:27 From Randy Seaver : Yes, you can opt-out any time. There is a “Police” link on the line with your kit number
10:12:32 From Sheryl Zeringue to All panelists : Good morning from South Louisiana
10:12:58 From Randy Seaver : Click on the “Police” link and scroll down to opt in. The default is Opt-out at this point.
10:13:08 From Deb Andrew : I took all my many kits off of gedmatch. I know longer trust them to keep their word.
10:13:42 From Yolanda Sanders to All panelists : so at FTDNA you can opt out, if you opt out, does that keep you from seeing your matches?
10:13:44 From Hilary Gadsby : I have not gotten around to adding any gedcom file other than with My Heritage so they would not find anything useful from mine. I might hold fire until this gets sorted.
10:17:23 From Deb Andrew : I do read the ToS.
10:17:57 From Cassandra Davis to All panelists : Before managing others DNA, I detail LE consequences, and specifically ask permission. All have agreed for LE access. We want a victim whether on life suspect vs murdered vs an un-IDed found female body, we want LE access. There are alot of missing women on Canadian borders and reservations.
10:18:16 From Kathleen Daetsch : I read up on it before I joined because I don’t read the terms of service myself
10:18:57 From Graham Walter to All panelists : It makes sense to use the expertise of those in our community in their specialised areas
10:20:21 From Doris Haskell : Now that I have finished my classes, I’m spending time looking at my own family tree. I’m working to link my Legacy records with Family Search. I’m at 1% so far.
10:20:21 From June Butka : I was one who did my DNA in Early years as a request from a person searching to rule out a possible “Killer” for the girls in our area in the 1970’s.
10:20:28 From Pamela Wells : I use Gedmatch every day and I only use initials of the DNA person whose raw data it is along with asking the person if they agree with my uploading of their DNA when I become their DNA manager. I have helped a few adoptees find their parents with the Gedmatch service. It has helped me enormously and I intend to keep using it based on this scenario. I sincerely appreciate Judy’s input and service to our genealogy community with her legal advice. I would think that Blaine Bettinger would be a great advisor on this issue.
10:20:33 From June Butka : To help solve the case.
10:20:53 From Randy Seaver : Marian, we don’t know what MH would do in that situation. Most law enforcement organizations have their own DNA databases for bad actors and maybe whole populations. The US does, but it doesn’t have the “genealogy” capability.
10:21:30 From Doris Haskell : Pamela Wells, what a wonderful work you do! Bless you!
10:22:02 From Cassandra Davis to All panelists : Do people read every change of terms your bank and telephone companies send in your statements? I get of tiny prints pages often.
10:23:21 From Janine Edmée Hakim : May I ask…so if a distant, unknown relative “opts in” and GEDmatch uncovers my DNA info in the process ( I also being a GEDmatch customer who chose not to opt in) . can my information now become available indirectly through my relatives search ?
10:23:34 From Pamela Wells : You can also upload your Gedcom at Gedmatch.com
10:23:59 From Pamela Wells : Thank you Doris Haskell for your kind comment.
10:24:12 From Mary Buchholz to All panelists : But the trees are what help the law enforcement Gedcom files
10:25:58 From Doris Haskell : Thank you, Dear MYRTLE!
10:27:28 From Pamela Wells : They can identify you on Gedmatch by email address
10:27:54 From Cassandra Davis to All panelists : Michigan State Police have had a DNA collection campaign from victim families.
10:29:49 From Laurie Desmarais to All panelists : CODIS is 13 markers and Gedmatch has more
10:30:05 From Graham Walter : . CODIS FAQ = https://www.fbi.gov/services/laboratory/biometric-analysis/codis/codis-and-ndis-fact-sheet
10:30:28 From Randy Seaver : GEDmatch and the other genealogy sites use 700,000 (aprox.) SNPs
10:32:41 From Randy Seaver : Linda’s ancestry is from around the Hardanger fjord.
10:34:07 From Marian Koalski : Like US war reenactors
10:34:10 From Deb Andrew : MyHeritage just announce the release of Health testing+Ancestry.
10:34:48 From Randy Seaver : MyHeritage health is additional $120
10:35:30 From Randy Seaver : Oops, my mistake – Linda’s ancestry is around Sognefjord
10:37:41 From Marian Koalski : Maine and Massachusetts have Patriots Day on April 19 (movable)
10:37:55 From Marian Koalski : The shot heard round the world
10:37:57 From Laurie Desmarais to All panelists : RI celebrates VJ Day
10:38:13 From johnlaws : Visually I’m with you but have intermittent sound Will catch you guys on the recording Take care Oh I do so miss my old Samsung.
10:38:17 From Marian Koalski : They move it to Monday to suit tourism for Boston Marathon
10:38:20 From Randy Seaver : California has Cesar Chavez day March 31, school holiday
10:38:30 From Doris Haskell to All panelists : Patriots Day is April 15t, according to Siri
10:39:15 From Marian Koalski : Oh, and Boston has March 17 (Evacuation Day) for the day that the Brits evacuated Boston in 1776
10:40:02 From Linda Jordan to All panelists : Texas Independence Day – March 2.
10:40:27 From Deb Andrew : Nice maternity hospitals in Adelaide, the Queen Vic.
10:40:39 From June Butka : Chancellor’s Day 18 December
10:41:14 From Kathleen Newbill : “Boring and Dull Day,” Aug 9 in Oregon.
10:41:38 From Kathleen Newbill : Great read! I’m almost finished.
10:42:01 From Cousin Russ : The Sinclair Betrayal: A Jayne Sinclair Genealogical Mystery Kindle Edition by M J Lee (Author) https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07Q6K8DGJ
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.

10:02:16 From Dave Robison: https://blog.myheritage.com/2018/06/myheritage-offers-free-dna-tests-to-help-reunite-separated-migrant-children-with-their-parents/

10:13:35 From Dave Robison Available for Android??
10:15:03 From Hilary Gadsby: Not yet
10:18:36 From Randy Seaver : I doubt that Geneva Tweddell married a Roger Dumb or a Johnny Dee, but wouldn’t that be funny?
10:19:29 From Dave Robison to All panelists : Did he mention “Hardin” and if so, a location or a family name?
10:20:00 From Hilary Gadsby : Being able to display on your phone makes it easier to share with family.
10:20:55 From Randy Seaver : hi True Lewis, are you home now?
10:22:07 From True Lewis : Hello Randy! – yes , I made it back last night.
10:23:15 From Marcia Philbrick : uninstalling the app and re-installing fixed the crashing app for me
10:23:20 From Randy Seaver : so you do need [to link to a] FamilySearch Family Tree, right?
10:23:36 From deecoz : How does the data get into the app? (I had a crash & missed that point.)
10:23:56 From Cousin Russ : email@example.com

10:27:08 From DearMYRTLE : https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-family-nexus-for-android-apps-iphone/#/

10:29:14 From David Taylor : @Hilary Yes it works everywhere!

10:29:41 From Hilary Gadsby : great video
10:29:47 From Marian Koalski : I was amazed by the visit with Paul McCartney.
[We shared some pic of True Lewis attending the Daughters of the American Revolution annual “Congress.” Find out more about the DAR at http://www.DAR.org ]
10:29:54 From Sheryl Whisenhunt : Beautiful True.
10:30:01 From Marian Koalski : Superb gown, True!
10:30:24 From Melinda Culpon : Absolutely beautiful!
10:30:43 From Hilary Gadsby : loved that pboto
10:32:16 From Marian Koalski : You make me want to go back, True! I remember long days and sore feet.
10:35:47 From Linda : The early Daughters were laughed at for purchasing useless swamp land!
10:38:57 From Deb Andrew : Why would you have to cover the insigma? Is it a secret society?
10:40:09 From Marian Koalski : It isn’t secret. I’m puzzled by what True says about the insignia. Around Mass., we’re encouraged to wear the insignia to public events — but behave like ladies!
10:40:32 From Marian Koalski : We wear them at Memorial Day observances, etc.
10:40:36 From deecoz : Campfire Girls used to have robes worn only within the meetings. As did Job’s Daughters. Customs vary with organizations and times.
10:41:45 From Linda : DAR insignia may be worn in public at official events. However, it must be covered when eating in restaurants, in bars, etc. Otherwise, it is just worn at DAR meetings and conferences.
10:45:00 From June Butka : I loved following you [True Lewis] on Facebook.
10:47:46 From Cousin Russ : Black ProGen hangouts http://www.whoisnickasmith.com/blackprogen/
10:48:37 From True Lewis : Linda that is the way I was taught about Insignia in Public. Meetings and Conferences and Official Events.
11:00:24 From Randy Seaver : Pat – you could put the obituary transcription in the Notes and the source in the Source field
11:02:20 From Marian Koalski : I try to put any images of documents that I have into the Memories section, in hopes that people will see the facts more clearly.
11:03:32 From Molly : I have a step-great grandfather who married 2 Alices. My great grandmother was the second one. All the children listed were from the 1st Alice. I keep finding all his children being atriibuted to my great grandmother.
11:09:34 From Marcia Philbrick : As a teacher in a small rural school, we had two students with the same first, middle and last name and same birthdate. They were in the same graduating class. We told them apart in our record keeping by the community they lived in.
11:10:59 From Marian Koalski : Tough to be an educator in that situation!
11:13:40 From Cousin Russ : Citing “LOCATIONAL DATA” in one’s own office – Evidence Explained FB Group https://www.facebook.com/evidenceexplained/photos/a.304242282984494.69857.297329857009070/1979628775445828/?type=3
11:14:08 From Dave Robison : Thanks for letting me discuss NERGC. Registration will be opening soon. http://www.nergc.org
11:14:39 From Marian Koalski : It would help me find my own stuff again!
11:14:49 From June Butka : That would be okay if that is where the items stays. You would need to remember to change it if you moved.
11:15:02 From jacquelinewilson : Overshare – because every time it gets moved, you would have to change the station!
11:15:18 From Molly : I am laughing about that as I am constantly moving stuff around. It would not work for me.
11:16:25 From June Butka : Provenence is what I put in my meta data on a digital copy.
11:16:49 From Marian Koalski : I make notations about folder and file name in my citations. They’re mostly for me anyway, and it might help a grand-kid find it later.
11:23:51 From Melinda Culpon : Dr Jones at IGHR says that he edits almost all footnotes and citations get edited as a printed space issue.
11:23:54 From Cousin Russ : https://www.facebook.com/evidenceexplained/
11:24:22 From jacquelinewilson : No wonder I had issues with it yesterday!
11:25:15 From Melinda Culpon : you were missed!
11:27:14 From Randy Seaver : That was Hannah Morden of Living DNA. I talked to her and David Nicholson at Jamboree
11:27:22 From True Lewis : Thanks for everything Dear Myrtle (Pat) & Cousin Russ for being on this Journey with me from the beginning! I enjoyed being here this afternoon.
11:28:01 From DearMYRTLE to All panelists : An honor to have you!
11:28:19 From Deb Andrew : Is it more than what is on your results on the web page?
11:28:44 From Randy Seaver : how much did the book cost?
11:28:47 From True Lewis : My Welsh line is J1 my Evans.
11:29:36 From Marcia Philbrick : Email from tngusers list — Many TNG (The Next Generation) web sites were hacked last night. It evidently affected sites running TNG 11. The resolution is to restore from a backup and then update to version 12.0.1 http://www.tngsitebuilding.com/
11:35:12 From Randy Seaver : I was at San Diego FamilySearch Library last Saturday finding English parish records for my project study presentation

19:16:34 From Karen Trearchis : Congratulations Blaine Bettinger!
19:17:05 From Mary Roddy : OK, I signed up!
19:18:10 From Mary Roddy : Are you planning on anything regarding writing about using DNA? How it fits into the GPS, what we need to document?
19:18:31 From Nadine : Do you or will you cover how to organize this data from all of the matches? I am feeling overwhelmed and need tips on this.
19:19:06 From LisaGorrell : How do we put the data into a proof argument?

19:20:17 From Melissa : I am excited to share this new site with my genealogy class on Tuesday!
19:22:10 From Karen Trearchis : I already began the Myheritage course.
Regarding SPAM EMAIL
19:26:54 From jacquelinewilson : I also put mine in spam and send an email to the person and say that they may have been hacked.
19:26:56 From Karen Trearchis : In a Mac you drag into Junk mail and then go to junk folder and then click a dropdown menu that says erase junk mail.
19:27:37 From Louis : I use Windows Defender which is free and comes with Windows 10 and I’ve never had a virus.
19:28:45 From Karen Trearchis : For my Mac, I use Malwarebytes Anti Malware. You use this when you think you have a problem or want to see if you do have a problem. However, always is ok.
19:29:45 From Karen Trearchis : I will check .
19:30:06 From jacquelinewilson : I am on a MAC and use Avast.
19:30:10 From Louis : Yes, it’s me, Louis Kessler.
19:30:13 From nana2 : For my HP laptop, I use McAfee, which came with it.
19:30:29 From Karen Trearchis : Yes, https://www.malwarebytes.com
19:31:18 From Karen Trearchis : It used to be free and the address was .org
19:31:57 From nana2 : I have two email addresses. One is with Wyoming.com and the other is Gmail. They both have the option to send things to Junk.
19:32:06 From Karen Trearchis : The Mac technicians use Malwarebytes, too.
19:32:23 From Karen Trearchis : At apple.com

19:33:19 From Cousin Russ : https://www.avast.com
19:33:49 From nana2 : I just want to say that I’m so happy we are all back together tonight. 🙂
19:34:25 From Jeanne Mower : you mentioned all are the same, but can you talk about fake ones
19:35:02 From nana2 : With GEDmatch, you can make an exclusive email address for people to contact you for chatting about your matches.
19:35:24 From jacquelinewilson : My question is do you need both a virus protection and malware protection?
19:35:54 From Karen Trearchis : For Mac people google David A. Cox, he owns his own business at the Cape, he suggested this product. He hasfree youtube classes on Macs.
19:37:12 From Karen Trearchis : Macs has a firewall, too.
