TENNESSEE RESEARCH
RE: Tennessee Resources

--------------------------------------------------------
From: Teresa Elliott
DearMYRTLE,The Tennessee State Library and Archives has inventories of most of their microfilm online at
http://www.state.tn.us/tsla/preservation/microfilmindex.htm
I find it very useful in seeing what records are available before I make a trip there. [NOTE: See also Rutherford County http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~rutherfordcemetery with various other county resources.]

HURRICANE RELIEF
RE: American Red Cross

From:
DearMYRTLE,
We're contributing gladly! Who knows, later this month or next, or even next year, it could be us! We would be so grateful for the help! Florida has already received their aid during our own crises in Florida last year.
My grandmother was a career Red Cross District Visiting Nurse. I have her Red Cross medal she that she was awarded for her heroic work at setting up the medical tent and relief at Sakonnet Point, Little Compton, R.I., a rural district on the Atlantic coast, right after the horrendous "Hurricane of 1938" ravaged New England. There was only one doctor and she was the only nurse. She was first to get in her report of casualties, etc. to Red Cross Headquarters.

LANDFORM MAPS

--------------------------------------------------------
From: Kathleen
DearMYRTLE,Thanks for all the links; they look great. Have you tried Google Earth - satellite images?
http://earth.google.com/ It's free, however needs a fairly new computer to work. The images are only a few years old and very detailed - can see my car in the driveway. You can type in a house # and street and it gets you close to the building. I enjoy your newsletter and have picked up lots of genealogy tips.

SPRUCING THINGS UP with familiar quotations
RE:
http://www.dearmyrtle.com/05/0823.htm
--------------------------------------------------------
From: gypsy97@bellsouth.net
DearMYRTLE,
I'm thinking about writing a small book of my mother's quotations. Things like, "What if your face freezes like that?", "Birds of a feather flock together", "If you have sex with him he won't marry you", and the one that I have always obeyed, "Don't ever put clean curtains up on dirty windows."
NOTE from Myrt: I think the phrase my mom used was "Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?"

INTERNET RADIO SHOW
--------------------------------------------------------
From: Cindy Walters
DearMYRTLE,
I live just across the Bay from you in Clearwater...is your radio show broadcast on a local radio station that I can get up here in Clearwater? If so, what station and what days and times?
