Thanks to last week's Wacky Wednesday participants, we have a new and improved promo graphic for our study group. All it took was a little color tweaking and things are looking mighty spiffy. Ol' Myrt here and +Cousin Russ hope your genealogy research will get spiffy looking as well. The group is FUN, and we are learning LOTS of pertinent "where to do next" for documents that may mention our ancestors.
NO, it's not too late to join the study group. Just review previous sessions here:
Participants will review beginning research strategies including identifying what is known, deciding what to learn, selecting records to search, obtaining and searching the records, evaluating and using the information. Considerable effort will be made to provide screen shares of each record type. Although the focus is general United States research, these research principles and use of the FamilySearch Wiki can be applied to over ancestral studies in over 120 additional countries throughout the world, with additional regional (state, county, town, parish) wiki entries.

WHERE is the next session?
VIEW and post COMMENTS before, during and after each Study Group Hangout on Air here:
We are using Google+ Hangouts on Air for this study group, just as we use for Mondays with Myrt. We open the "green room" 15 minutes early if you'd like to test out your microphone and webcam. Consider JOINing the panel when we "scramble" to mix up the conversation a bit.
For this Beginning Genealogy Study Group, it isn't necessary to JOIN "the filmstrip panel" to participate. Some people are shy about appearing there, especially when just starting out. However, do post your comments or questions. Turn up those computer speakers, and head on over to VIEW the live sessions, post COMMENTS before, during and after each session here: http://bit.ly/MyrtsNext
If you miss a session, no worries! All Beginning Genealogy Study Group sessions will be archived in DearMYRTLE's YouTube Channel (no comments or links) as well as in DearMYRTLE's Genealogy Community on Google+ in the left, under "Hangouts - previous." http://bit.ly/MyrtsPrevious (where you will find all links mentioned and can follow comments for this session.)
WHEN ARE FUTURE SESSION TO BE HELD?
Check the GeneaWebinars Calendar for any changes to the dates for this and other DearMYRTLE study groups and Hangouts on Air, in addition to over 200 hours of online genealogy classes, webinars and tweetchats from other hosts and presenters in the next 12 months.
Happy family tree climbing!
