Many friends in North America are snowed in today, with reports of new storms in the forecast. Just read the National Archives (US) is closed due to severe storm warnings. So keep warm, grab a cup of hot chocolate, and join us for Mondays with Myrt.
Just a few topics to get our conversation going:
WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH
Are you joining Lisa Alzo in the Fearless Females fun this March which is National Women's History Month?
Gena Philibert Ortega reports via Facebook: "This year in honor of Women's History Month I'm posting a book a day to help better understand our female ancestor's lives." You can check it out on Gena's Genealogy.
Olive Tree's Lorine McGinnis Schulze shared to the Google+ Preserving Family Heirlooms and Memories Community: Saving Those Memories!. It's about using her Toshiba DVD recorder with built-in tuner to transfer her hold VHS tapes to DVD. She says it's super fast and easy, and cheaper than using a service.
ADDING CITATIONS TO IMAGES
Carmel Galvin originally shared via a public post to Google+ this method of adding citations to newspaper clippings over on the Library Currants blog. (Hint: Jing from Tech Smith is part of the equation.) Here's the link: http://librarycurrants.blogspot.com.au/2014/02/adding-citations-to-images.html.
Today brought an announcement about Genealogy Standards from the Board for Certification of Genealogists. Ol' Myrt here added the links to comparison charts:
