I think the people that watch the recorded vesion of Mondays with Myrt have been forgotten. It's not on utub. And we can watch at the time it's happening. The New sight says to rgister. But  doesn't show where.

Just a little more work for the month of January! 😊


DearREADERS, Sorta? Well, you know, next week's checklist will be published on Sunday, 31st January 2016 but will concern the first week in February, that poor, forlorn month with so few days. But I digress. THE JAN 24th-31st CHECKLIST BEGINS HERE. This week takes a different tack - it's pay ...

Very cool. Putting tidbits of an ancestor's profile out there in public places increases the chances of finding long lost and heretofore unknown cousins. 😊

+Caitlin Gow did a great post on her blog which I will put a link to in the comments on this hangout. It is a great illustration of what can be shared and how a chance encounter can lead to connecting. http://genealogically-speaking.blogspot.com.au/2016/01/a-chance-encounter.html

Thanks to Pauleen Cass for spotting this. If you think transcribing everything, including a typed document is nuts, read what experts say about writing things out. It's all about learning.

I will not be transcribing index records and a host of other relatively simply documents because I use Evidentia and that software forces you carefully scrutinise your documents.  I will (and always have done) transcribe handwritten letters, postcards, lengthy official documents (eg a will) and newspaper articles.  I also challenge the generalisations presented in the article.  Handwriting does not help everyone to learn, for some people the act of writing by hand is nearly impossible due to dysgraphia.  Some dyslexics (depending on the form of their dyslexia) can also find such an activity nearly impossible and could create a barrier to learning rather than be helpful.
