Archived: Mondays with Myrt 23 December 2013

Amidst all the hustle and bustle of this past week, we managed to broadcast Mondays with Myrt, a newsy collaboration among panelists as we figure out how to climb our family trees. Here's the archived version.

Genealogy Bloggers going to RootsTech 2014: Be sure to let Ol' Myrt here know you are coming, so I can share a strand of blogger beads with you. You'll recognize me in the media center of the exhibit hall, as I'll be wearing my purple feather boa. Join this Facebook Group for more info: Genealogy Bloggers at RootsTech 2014.

Getting from CD to Amazon Cloud: We originally looked at Digital Decisions: Taking Your Media Beyond the Home Stereo, but Ol’ Myrt has figured they forgot to describe the process fully. It includes the following free software:


What happened to Ol’ Myrt’s iPhone5? - Here's the link to the 120% battery extension called a Mophie Juice Pack

Is Blogging REALLY Dead? I blog less, and FB or G+ more, Ol' Myrt here does VLOGs (video blogs). See: The panelists seem to agree that in the world of genealogy, there is more than enough room

From Elizabeth Shown Mills, noted by Russ Worthington reading from the Facebook page for Evidence Explained: Elizabeth writes MONDAY'S METHODS: Is This Published or Unpublished? 

"Two mantras are common among those who use historical material: 
  • Cite what you've used.
  • Ask yourself: What am I holding in my hand?"

"Genealogical Inference Standards" -- I like that phrase. Be sure to read the comments to this post. Canada's Anglo-Celtic Connections: Thoughts on browsing "Mastering Genealogical Proof" The discussion included 46 comments via Facebook here.

From All Science All the Time, this Facebook share:

If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original.


 "I am volunteer at a local Adult Care Community, where I "teach" them family research. I use FTM2014 and now the whole class (5 to 8) use Family Tree Maker, or at least those with a computer. Each active member of the class has given me a Family Group Sheet..."
It's great when the students start helping each other, reinforcing principles you've taught.
