REGISTER: Mondays with Myrt 19 Dec 2016


DearREADERS,
Join us for our last hangout of the year - Mondays with Myrt - 19 Dec 2016. We begin the broadcast as follows:
Noon Eastern US (New York)
11am Central US (Chicago)
10am Mountain US (Denver, Salt Lake City)
9am Pacific US (Los Angeles)
UTC-7 hours
That leaves us with plenty of time in December to:
  • Wrap gifts for the upcoming holidays.
  • Get some genealogy research done.
  • Consolidate the variety of place names for one locality in our genealogy databases.
  • Scan old photos and letters.
  • Interview other family members, perhaps using your smart phone. You could upload as "unlisted" and share the link with your family on your personal YouTube channel. If you have a Google account, you can activate that free space on YouTube.
  • Write up a few stories about your life as a child.
  • Get your new bullet journal set up.
  • Read the first assignment for the GPS Study Group using Christine Rose, Genealogical Proof Standard: Building a Solid Case 4th Edition Revised, (San Jose, California: CR Publications) 2014.  [Available for under $10 at Amazon and other online book sellers.]  
    Assignment: Read in advance
    Chapter 1: What is the Genealogical Proof Standard?  for the hangout scheduled Wednesday, 4-Jan-17 at Noon Eastern (US). This includes a discussion of
     evaluation and assembling evidence.
  • Relax and have fun with family.
  • Invite friends over for a marathon game of Monopoly. Do you know they make a "credit card" version, so there cannot possibly be any cheating by the banker?
