ARCHIVED: Mondays with Myrt - 11 Jan 2021




DearREADERS,
Here's the archived version of Mondays with Myrt where we discussed:
  • Our Best 2020 research breakthroughs
  • US Passport applications before and after 1925
  • Liv reports on a DNA breakthrough in Norway.
  • Current thinking - genealogical conclusions can be affected when new documents come to light.
  • Look at websites every 3 months, as many are adding new info.
  • Google Maps to look at an historical museum Randy and Linda visited during their trip to Voss, Norway.
  • The Barney Collection at Nantucket Historical Association, where it the researcher didn't have the "Barney" surname, but Nantucket was a locality bingo for her. [Panelist Dave had a breakthrough with 8 surnames in this collection.]
  • Frank Jatzek reminded those researching Germans that immigrated to and from Boston, look for the "Der Deutsche Correspondent" it has some passenger lists from ships coming to and Setting off from Boston.
  • Michael Tepper's American Passenger Arrival Records; A Guide to the Records of Immigrants Arriving at American Ports by Sail and Steam (nonaffiliate link)
  • Diana suggest the 20,000 volumes for pre-1820 at the Immigrant Shop Transcribers' Guild website.
  • Randy advises Betty-Lu to read DiAnn Iamarino's blog - Fortify Your Family Tree? She writes great posts about Italian records. https://family-tree-advice.blogspot.com/
  • The importance of collateral (siblings) of our ancestors provide great clues.
  • Genealogy on Facebook listing of over 16,000 groups and pages for places, topics and surnames compiled by Katherine Willson. https://socialmediagenealogy.com/genealogy-on-facebook-list/
  • 8k+ members of the Group Dave admins https://www.facebook.com/groups/findagravediscussion
  • The importance of "lurking" when  you first join a group. BJ says it best:
As an introvert, I have always lurked, whether in a physical group or virtual.  I  like to "get the temperature" - see the relationships before I jump in.
