Mondays with Myrt - LIVE from the Family History Library

DearREADERS,
Just received confirmation that MONDAYS with MYRT will broadcast LIVE from the world-famous Family History Library on Monday 18 March 2013 beginning at 10am to noon in the 3rd Floor Glass Conference room. 

Between now and then, I'll see who is in town early for #RootsTech 2013, and start a fantastic line-up of interviews for a lively conversation. It would be a great way to promo RootsTech in addition to the blogging and research work we find folks are doing in this fabulous research facility.





HERE'S HOW TO ATTEND LIVE
Join Ol' Myrt beginning at 9am as we arrange for the setup and the interview schedule on a clipboard. (How low tech can Myrt get?)


We are using Google+ Hangouts On Air for this event.

Noon Eastern US (New York)
11 am Central US (Chiago)
10am Mountain US (Denver, Salt Lake City)
9am Pacific US (Los Angeles)

  1. Hey Myrtle (aka Pat) :)

    This sounds fun! I'd love to participate in this! I don't think I'll be in Salt Lake quite yet, but I will try to get in on the Google+ hangout. That sounds great!

    I'll be at RootsTech with BillionGraves. Any idea where you will be? I'd love to meet you!
