Mondays with Myrt 4 Nov 2013



DearREADERS,
Have Google+ Hangouts on Air gone mainstream? YES, find out why this free video conferencing tool makes sense for you personally, and as a member of your local genealogy society. Take the plunge and JOIN as a panelist during today’s Mondays with Myrt as we go  LIVE in about 60 minutes. VIEW on YouTube, but be there this morning!

 TOPICS, you want TOPICS?
What’s her last name?
Seems like everyone is chiming in on what to do in our genealogy databases when we don’t know a woman’s maiden name. Today, during Mondays with Myrt, let’s talk about the BCG (Board for Certification of Genealogists) accepted method and how that translates when using genealogy software. 
EVENTBRITE
Ol’ Myrt will log in and demonstrate how easy it is to set up an “event” at www.Eventbrite.com as we discuss how this would be useful for your local genealogy and history society’s upcoming annual conferences.

How RootsTech looks from this Official Blogger's point of view by Ol’ Myrt. RootsTech 2014, Salt Lake City, Salt Palace Convention Center, February 6 - 8, 2014, Google+ Hangouts on Air Workshops $10 extra presented by Cousin Russ, Barry Kline, Ol’ Myrt (in person) and appearing remotely, Jenny Lanctot. https://rootstech.org And now there’s an app for that!

COUSIN RUSS
Seems that “Cousin Russ” is  +Russ Worthington's stage name now. Whatever you call him, we must
admit he knows a lot about Family Tree Maker. Randy Seaver of the GeneaMusings Blog acknowledged Russ’ work as one of the Best of the GeneaBlogs this past week:

A RESEARCH BREAKTHROUGHIt has been a while since we tackled a research challenge live. Let's do it this morning, and see what the panel comes up with. Ol' Myrt here suspects we will map out a research plan for one of the Mondays with Myrt panelists.

BE NERVY TODAY
Talking about the Mondays with Myrt panelists, today we're going to be sure to switch out panelists, pulling in new folks who have WANTED to try to JOIN, but just didn't have the nerve. Well, let's be nervy today and see who shows up. Be the daredevil. Take the plunge! It's not hard to JOIN. We will give you the link.

the man who jumped to earth from the highest level of earth's atmosphere, and lived to tell the tale.
YUP! Just like Felix, you'll live to tell the tale. Google Hangouts and Hangouts on Air are FUN!
