Myrt's New Hangouts are receiving rave reviews

Folks are turning out in greater numbers now that DearMYRTLE's genealogy hangouts can be freely accessed using Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, in addition to a Google+ account. +Cousin Russ  and I couldn't be more pleased. Thanks to all who have helped us test the new interface. Ol' Myrt here still has challenges getting the camera on the "right" person, but our long-time viewers know that's nothing new.

  • "Almost flawless presentation Monday's with Myrt! I listened all the way through-my first time. Most interesting. :) Thank you." Sheila H
  • "This has been easier than I expected. Thanks!" Dave R
  • "Great format. This was my first time and I love it." Anna A

Check your email for your unique link to view and comment.

In addition to the initial confirmation email, there are reminders set to go out 4 days, 1 day and 30 minutes before each hangout. Thanks to our viewers who helped us customize the experience to work best for our geneafriends. Special thanks to techies +Michael Daniels , +Heather Kraafter , +Andrew Hatchett  and the incomparable +Sheila Hensley.


As we mentioned in the video, we're offering one registration option at a time this week, making it less complicated during this transition. Next week you will find links to register for each of next week's hangouts. 

Isn't technology amazing? It's thrilling to be in conversation with genealogists from all over the world.

Happy family tree climbing!
