DearMYRTLE's BEST of the Internet for Genealogists Award 25 May 2008 list is the first to include the "plus 1" category for items that don't fit the norm. Mention here is an indication from Ol' Myrt here that the following websites are certainly worth your effort to explore.

From the BookShelf


  • Second Life (Once you've joined, and it's free, search for Clarise Beaumont or DearMYRTLE Writer.)
  • Family History Library Catalog at www.FamilySearch.org
  • GenSmarts
  • Milseán Chocolate Shoppe(Myrt's nephew's in-laws have created a wonderful chocolate bark of either white or dark chocolate with almonds and/or cranberries.) Milseán (meel-shawn), in Gaelic (Ireland's ancestral language) means "Sweet Things". Visit the retail shoppe at the renovated Aldergrove Fire Hall, at 2900 272nd Street, in Aldergrove, BC or order online.
  • I Have A Song For You Set from BriteMusic.comBrite Music has great kids' music, songs & activity books. The music is also available in .mp3 format for your iPod.
    During the podcast you'll hear "I love my Grandpa-pa". Ol' Myrt here particularly likes "I know my number, my telephone number" from the Safety Kids CD.


Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt :)
