HOW Cousins Connect segments of Workshop Webinar on Wednesday

DearREADERS,
Last night during the last 15 minutes of Geneablogger's BlogTalk Radio Show, host and master of ceremonies Thomas MacEntee asked me about this coming week's DearMYRTLE's webinar -- and I explained its going to be a double-header.

My friend Russ Worthington and I have been cooking up a great interactive demonstration of "How Cousins Connect" to showcase during Wednesday's DearMYRTLE's Ancestry.com Trees Workshop Webinar© .

Russ is a Family Tree Maker power-user who'll demonstrate interfacing between FTM and Ancestry.com trees, and I'll be demonstrating how I get my tree info from RootsMagic to Ancestry.com trees. The webinar is free -- and it's not just about PowerPoints anymore!

DearMYRTLE’s Ancestry.com Trees Workshop Webinar©
Live demo of why Myrt thinks beginning researchers with US roots benefit from uploading their GEDCOM file to Ancestry Trees. Includes an overview of GEDCOM file creation using RootsMagic and a discussion about privacy levels offered by Ancestry.com. Emphasis on attaching scanned images of original documents to each ancestor, but includes information about networking with other researchers. This is a great deal more effective than message boards.

Your friend in genealogy.

  1. Sounds great! Will Russ also be showing how to get those Ancestry.com trees onto the iPod and iPhone? We had a discussion with Russ about this very subject at NERGC.
