Mondays with Myrt - 23 June 2014 Time Stamp Version

In July 2014 we'll begin posting "time stamp" transcripts of Mondays with Myrt (Hangouts on Air.) Thanks to Cousin +Russ Worthington, who uploads this to both DearMYRTLE's YouTube Channel and the DearMYRTLE Genealogy Community on Google+. You  could use the slider bar across the bottom of the YouTube video, but clicking the hyperlinked "Time Stamp" takes you directly to that portion of the roughly 90 minute Mondays with Myrt Hangout on Air. This opens up access to specific topics discussed during our open format genealogy discussions. Thank-you Russ, for figuring out how to create time stamps. We certainly do "get by with a little help from our friends!"

There are 3 ways of using "time stamps" to view archived versions of Mondays with Myrt:

Time stamps work BEST right in the DearMYRTLE Genealogy Community, where you'd want to go anyway to read the comments and add a few of your own. That video view with time stamps there keeps ONE video screen, and moves you forward as you click a different time stamp.

Time Stamps work fine, but you cannot comment.
Bookmark this site, as this is where all of DearMYRTLE videos are archived. Right now there are over 250 hours of genealogy content available there.

Time stamps here open up a new video window for each click. The view is on the YouTube side where you can revert to item 1 (above). Remember you cannot comment here. You can comment

  1. Get in touch with Ivan.

    My mothers father was born in Beograd 22 jan 1900 we dont know to much of him. Can you help me to get in touch with Ivan in Beograd maybe he can help me where to start

    See what I know

    1. DearMANGUS,
      By now, you've figured out how to connect with Fr. Ivan via his Google+ account located here:

  2. Way to go Russ figuring that out as a service to your viewers!

  3. +DearMYRTLE,

    It's a fun project. Some times helping to the behind the scenes stuff in the live HOA, I miss parts, but re-watching helps fix that problem.

    A little reminder to your Dear Readers, is that you can pause, rewind, and replay any part of the show.

    Also, as in your example, I am re-posting links from the show with the *#TimeStamp*. So, if we are have a time stamp for +Randy Seaver's blog, I am putting a link to it, just under the time stamp. Those same links are in the comments.

    Sort-a like having one of your *Short Subject* videos in the 90 minute show.
