Relevant to our research.

Re: Topics for Next Year: I can definitely use help with Canadians, especially those floating over the border between New England and Michigan in the early 19th C before census. Also following up on Irish immigrants, especially pre-1850 -- the sessions last March were a great start for me. The Mayflower (and the subsequent Great Migration) records would be of interest as well. Thanks for the invaluable insights this group provides!

Finishing the rest of this morning's MWM: Bill West wrote in the chat: "I really think that there is now a real distinction between those who emphasize DNA in their research and those who are more interested in family history."

For me it is both! I inherited work done by three family genealogists nearly a century ago, before the internet, on three separate lines. I've been trying to document what they found for the past 30 years. DNA has validated (for me) a number of lines for which I'd given up on finding records. Now I know it's worth pursuing these enigmas. And I've made some good discoveries.

I also follow We're Related on my iPhone, which sometimes gives dubious results, but has also given some good trails of breadcrumbs which I can then document.

So for me, it's all connected. I still consider myself a family historian. I'm a genealogical "Dead End Kid" with no grands or nephews and nieces, who needs to get this out in the public domain for future researchers.

Last Friday's seminar on using Social Media was so helpful! And useful for the "other historical organizations" I'm currently involved with, the Jane Austen Society and the Lace Museum.

Tony, this is awesome! Thanks for demonstrating it on Dear MYRTLE this morning (tip: should be on YouTube archive). And thanks for mentioning WINE as a possible emulator for the Mac platform. I'll be checking this out later when I get set up for my own genealogy blog. (https://www.winehq.org/ )

Hi I would appreciate opinions about how valuable MyHeritage is. Just found out I am paying twice, once for the Premium membership and again for data. It's confusing! Have been shouting at Eli in Israel on their membership line. Will appreciate any opinions about bang for buck, for about $400 per year. (I am more of an Ancestry user but have been triangulating on my DNA through MyHeritage.)

Thanks for adding me! Delighted to find a Mac-centric group that's current. And appreciate the leads on Graphic Converter, which I used years ago and liked. I've used Reunion for years but recently discovered the chart feature is apparently less robust, or I am missing something. Look forward to reading up on your past posts here.

For those doing the bullet journals, reasons why this might work.
