Now, here is a Game Show, HOA not to miss. With Sir +Michael Daniels as the host, a great way to either finish up a weekend or to start off a new week
 
Game show in a Hangout
Playing a game in a hangout can be great fun.  Playing along side in the Event comments can be just as appealing!

Google Plus Community =
 http://bit.ly/GameShowHOA

Our inaugural Game show "Playing with Matches"
So come watch Sunday night at 10pm Eastern. And watch as +Ronnie Bincer and +Heather Kraafter  compete while trying to match these fine folks... +Andrew Hatchett +Debi Davis +Jeff Sieh +Sherrill Duce +Terry Leigh Britton and +Jessica Dewell 
...in hopes of getting the most matches and a win!


HISTORY of our game show idea
We have been having game night in a couple of our communities on Friday nights for a few months now.  
So a couple of us have decided to put together a show (HINT: maybe a few shows) for the public to see, watch and participate.
If you are interested please come out and watch. Come join the
NEW Game show Community: http://bit.ly/GameShowHOA
This will be tons of fun and should be very entertaining.


As always I send this to the Game Show community so you get an invite.  I also have a game show circle I send this to and do not want to be SPAMMY .  So if you want out of the circle or the community, please let me know.
Also, if you share this event with other people please make sure they want it!  I really don't want to be Spammy!!

One topic we didn't get a chance to talk about on Mondays with Myrt this week is the #rootstech2015 APP for your smart device.

Every time I opened the APP there was an update. That's cool, BUT, what was updated? not cool.

What is your take ?

Also hoping that many take advantage of the feedback feature  - it is one of the ways that attendees can let FamilySearch and the #rootstech2015  folks know what you liked, disliked, what worked, what didn't, what you would like to see in the future. And send that feedback for the sessions, the labs, the exhibit hall, the food, everything about RootsTech. I hear they started working on RootsTech2016 yesterday!

FTM2014 Questions  - 
 
A member of this community, +Joe Bissett made this post:

Cousin Russ, my FTM2014/Ancestry files are a mess.  I have several iterations of my main family tree file, and some of them will no longer synch.  I want to clean this mess up.  How do I merge files on Ancestry and get everything back together with one file in each place?

I will respond to this post.

I'm with you on Evernote. It is my most used item in my Genealogy Toolbox.

Russ
There has been a lot of discussion about genealogy toolboxes and the best way to create one.  I'm sure it is no surprise that I use Evernote to keep mine organized. I keep the links I use the most towards the top so they...

I did the word doc you mentioned with the photo of the document and citation from before the Genealogy Do-Over started. I'm glad I can keep those. I did start putting my citation in the meta data comment section since the Do-over started.

Hangouts - How to  - 
 
Great tip. As Myrt would say, "it's all about looking good"
 
HOA Tip... Check your surroundings before joining
When you are invited as a Hangout on Air (HOA) guest there are a couple screens you see before you Join Into a HOA filmstrip.

The first one you see requires you to agree to the terms and conditions of the Hangout on Air... things like you agree you may be broadcast and recorded, etc.

The next screen you'll see after agreeing to the terms is the one pictured here. It has a big Green Join Button so you can enter the HOA interface and interact with the other members of the call inside the HOA interface.

You may not know if the HOA has started broadcasting or not, so it is a good idea to take a moment here and look at what you see around you. Is what you are showing what you want others to see?

You may want to move things around a bit (papers on the desk, drinks on the table, etc.) before you press the Join button. Once you press "Join", your view won't be as focused on you as this screen shows, but if you like, you can pin your own thumbnail to see a similar view again once inside the filmstrip.

Learn more about the Hangout Interface so you are ready to handle all it offers you.

Caught myself forgetting I was on a HOA last weekend. We were discussing a website and I flipped over to another window to look at it. Very distracting! Next time I will write down the url and visit later.
