ARCHIVED: Mondays with Myrt 27 June 2016

Cousin Russ reported "It appears that Family Search IS back up. But there may be an issue with the Family Search Family Tree" so we did some experimentation. Ol' Myrt is hoping to deal with her "two uncle Jacks." Hopefully merging duplicates will be more readily possible. Betty-Lu Burton writes "I think in order to merge 2 people they both have to be dead or alive. One cannot be alive and the other dead."
Randy Seaver reported on James Tanner's blog post A New Beginning? The FamilySearch Family Tree Saga -- Part Four: The Merging Begins.

We spotlighted FamilySearch Indexing's upcoming Worldwide Indexing Event July 15-17th 2016, sponsored by FamilySearch. They are looking for 72,000 volunteers to index as many records as possible in that 72-hour period. Thanks to Allison Kimball for these darling Indexing Party Free Downloads in her blog Simple Inspiration, shown below:

Ol' Myrt here shared the link to the brand new Heritage Travel for Genealogists Facebook Group. Since then, Susan Peterson saw a big boost in membership requests. The idea is to give a heads up on travel challenges. She explains the purpose of the group is for "Discussion of heritage travel opportunities for genealogists. Share travel tips, preparation, organization. How to plan a trip to the locale where your ancestors lived. Links to heritage travel and genealogy tours and trips are acceptable. Members may share photos of their heritage travel trips. Please create a photo album within the group and name it with the location, your name and the year."
