DearLISTENERS & READERS,
Although Ol' Myrt was away this past week for the big family reunion up on Orcas Island, that didn’t stop cool things from happening in the world of genealogy. So I decided to do a podcast this week anyway – on Friday instead of Tuesday.
Today’s DearMYRTLE’s Family History Hour 20 July 2007 genealogy podcast is available for listening via computer or transferred to your .mp3 player if you choose to download it automatically via iTunes. For a complete list of current podcasts visit: http://podcasts.dearmyrtle.com/ . NOTE: The figures for number of downloads on my podcast page do not include the number of listeners who tune in via iTunes.
TOPICS & GUESTS THIS WEEK
- Justin Schroepfer from FOOTNOTE.com about the relationship between the (US) National Archives and Footnote; the difference between Footnote spotlights and story pages; and how individual researchers can create annotations when deciphering old handwriting that subsequent readers will find. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Jeff Harmon & Neil Harmon from FamilyLearn.com to discuss “MemoryPress” that has prompted Myrt & her 43 extended family members to collaborate online and ultimately publish a book about our family’s reunion last week.
