4 speaking invitations this week

It's a busy week for Ol' Myrt, who jumps at the chance to visit with other genealogists. Here's the line-up:

10 Nov 2009
at the fire pit in Just Genealogy
6-7 pm Second Life time (same as Pacific US)
Each 2nd Tuesday of the month we tackle a few additional examples of citations found in Elizabeth Shown Mill's Evidence Explained.

11 Nov 2009
Utah Genealogical Association & DearMYRTLE's Study Group Meeting
at the Family History Library "(B-1 Classroom)
6 pm - 8:45 pm
The first 10 people can "share", then we'll discuss the first the first two groups in Albion's Seed: Four British Folkways in America by David Hackett Fischer:
  • East Anglia to Massachusetts: The Exodus of the English Puritans
  • The South of England to Virginia: Distressed Cavaliers and Indentured Servants
Though you may not have ancestors in either group, study of social, religious, housing, government and other "folkways" will serve to hone analysis skills when looking at our own immigrant ancestors.

13 Nov 2009

"Finding Female Ancestors"
Contact Chapter President Jim Ison at jimison@comcast.net for details.

14 Nov 2009

For those of you in the greater Salt Lake City area, I hope to see you sometime this week. If you can get to the Port Angeles Jamboree, and would like to know more, contact the local Family History Center Director, Kathy Fotens kfotens@olypen.com.

Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt :)
