REGISTER for next week's DearMYRTLE study groups hangouts

DearREADERS,
We're adding a new British and Irish Military Records Study Group this coming week. Here's the official lineup. As usual, participants must register for each hangout, then click the link in the confirmation email to both VIEW and COMMENT before, during and after each hangout. There are no fees for these study groups, though you may elect to support the "PWYW" (Pay What You Want) business model DearMYRTLE and Cousin Russ employ.

For future DearMYRTLE hangouts, be sure check Myrt's Calender here.
