MGP Study Group - Chapter 4 TONIGHT

OK, our US holiday break is over, and tonight we'll head on over to DearMYRTLE's Google+ Community to comment during tonight's Mastering Genealogical Proof Study Group. Tonight we will be working on Chapter 4 after some review of our Chapter 3 homework. This will surely extend our discussion from 90 to 120 minutes.

You do need to join Google+, which is as easy as activating it from the menu bar on the top of your Gmail page. Then join Ol' Myrt's free community located here:


Thomas W. Jones, Mastering Genealogical Proof  (Arlington, Virginia: National Genealogical Society, 2013). [Book available from the publisher at ]

Things have changed again over on YouTube, so you won't find a "feed" tab anymore. Here are the simple steps:

1. Go to DearMYRTLE's YouTube Channel located here:

2. You may need to refresh the browser page. We will begin promptly as follows:

8pm Eastern US (New York)
7pm Central US (Chicago)
6pm Mountain US (Denver, Salt Lake City)
5pm Pacific US (Los Angeles)

If you need a time zone converter, there is a great one located here:

To accommodate a large group, we are using the Google Hangout On Air platform, originating at DearMYRTLE's Genealogy Community on Google+ located here:

All COMMENTS and links to assignments will be posted in this community. Participants may use a blog or a public Google document to share a homework assignment.

Unlike a webinar, the link for a G+ Hangout on Air isn't created until just before the event is to go live.

Closed-captioning is a feature of the live HOAs and recorded HOAs, through a service provided by Google. I'd say the speech recognition is about 90% accurate.

NOTE: The "filmstrip" of panelists receive their own invitations to JOIN the HOA. Merely be online on Google+ and you'll see the popup invitation in the lower right corner of your Google+ screen. Alternately, I'll post the link to JOIN the panel in the private MGP Study Group Panelists private community.

Happy family tree climbing!

Your friend in genealogy.

  1. I have listed to the last three classes again this week to prepare for this week -- and you are right, even though I enjoy everyone's input, I have developed favorites ... weird. I like everyone and respect everyone's opinions, but there are still some that I feel like I am on their wavelength with .... I look forward to tonight!
