Mondays with Myrt - 23 December 2013


DearREADERS,
Need a few minutes of calm midst the hustle and bustle of the season? Well, tuning in to today's live Mondays with Myrt will get you focused on family, and that's what this season is all about isn't it? Here's Ol' Myrt's family portrait taken circa 1958-59, judging by the age of my younger sister. Our mother made those dresses for Christmas that year. And that's my brother Mike wearing a bow tie, and white dinner jacket. My Dad hadn't yet decided to grow his goatee.


So tune in in about 90 minutes for Mondays with Myrt

·         HERE'S HOW TO PARTICIPATE
We are using Google+ Hangouts On Air, in conjunction with a new G+ option called an EVENT. If you belong to DearMYRTLE's Genealogy Community, you'll see the invitation to join the event there. If you have already replied "Yes" or "Maybe" to the event invitation, you'll find the event again by going to Home, then Events over on Google+. You will also find the link to the event on your personal Google Calendar. Cool beans, huh?

Noon Eastern US (New York)
11 am Central US (Chicago)
10am Mountain US (Denver, Salt Lake City)

HERE'S HOW TO JOIN
The first ten people who JOIN will appear on the panel and must have voice and video capabilities. I'll post the exact link here:



If you attempt to JOIN, and receive the notice that the Hangout is full, then just sit back to VIEW this event page.

HERE'S HOW TO VIEW THE EVENT LIVE
You may VIEW the Hangout live on in the G+ Event page located here:
https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/102461242403735457058/events/cuccut4gqi079t51vuh0dhkm4fo

Yes, you can still watch the old-fashioned way on DearMYRTLE's YouTube Channel located here:

The Hangout will not start appearing here until I press the record button at the top of the hour. It may take a minute for the video stream to kick in.

HERE'S WHERE ALL MAY POST COMMENTS
BEFORE, during or after the live broadcast of this Hangout On Air you may post comments on the new-fangled event page.

IF YOU MISS THE LIVE HANGOUT OR WANT TO WATCH LATER
The archived version of a Google Hangout On Air appears usually within 30 minutes of the close of the recorded session. The cool thing here is that you may pause, rewind and replay various sections of the archived Hangout on Air, if you'd like to review specific parts of Mondays with Myrt. You will find it on DearMYRTLE's YouTube Channel:

Happy family tree climbing!
