SHARE A MEMORY: Mary's Polish Immigrant Great-Grandparents

DearREADERS,
Looks like Mary Foxworthy is well on her way to being a genealogy vlogger (video blogger.) A genealogy vlogger? One who creates short subject videos as fun way to share ancestral stories. Archiving them on YouTube provides for easy access and no-cost storage. Mary writes "I'm sharing my first attempt at creating a genealogy video.  It was an intense learning experience.  I don't expect to win anything but I hope to get some constructive feedback so that I can  improve this project and continue to create a small video library. The topic is one set of my great grandparents before they emigrated from Poland."

I think many of my DearREADERS will be inspired by your work, Mary. Such a short, but sweet video "whets the whistle" for more stores like this one. Keep up the good work, Mary. How about 1 video each month in 2015? You'd then have 13 stories to readily share with family members.






HOW TO ENTER THE SHARE A MEMORY CONTEST
The deadline is midnight, Mountain US time, Sunday, 30 Nov 2014, and the winners names will be drawn from Mr. Myrt's hat on Monday, 1 Dec 2014 during Mondays with Myrt.  

FOR MORE INFORMATION about this year's contest, check the original announcement posted here.



Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt :)
