I am a happy woman again.  Dell tech support helped me get my laptop back up and running. It is still under warranty.  Woo hoo! And, I learned how to run diagnostics for future reference.

Hi, I'm new to the group and am hoping you can help me solve a mystery. This notation about my third great-grandfather's family is in a book published in 1906 by Anson A. Gard called "Pioneers of the Upper Ottawa and The Humors of the Valley."
I have not been able to find anyone who can explain the w.t.s. reference to Thomas.
Thanks for your help,
Dawn

Your reply is extraordinarily patronizing. I have exhausted all sources within the book, and have asked several librarians and genealogists for assistance.
I thought this was a friendly forum where requests were taken seriously.
And I really don't see why it's against the rules to solicit help from as many people as possible to solve a problem.

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.

WHERE
Post COMMENTS before, during and after each Study Group Hangout on Air here: http://bit.ly/MyrtsNext

We are using Google+ Hangouts on Air for this study group, just as we use for Mondays with Myrt. We open the "green room" 15 minutes early if you'd like to test out your microphone and webcam. Consider JOINing the panel when we "scramble" to mix up the conversation a bit.

HOW
For this Beginning Genealogy Study Group, it isn't necessary to JOIN "the filmstrip panel" to participate. Some people are shy about appearing there, especially when just starting out. However, do post your comments or questions as mentioned above.

So turn up those computer speakers, and head on over to VIEW the live sessions, post COMMENTS before, during and after each session here: http://bit.ly/MyrtsNext

ARCHIVED SESSIONS
If you miss a session, no worries! All Beginning Genealogy Study Group sessions will be archived in DearMYRTLE's YouTube Channel, as well as in DearMYRTLE's Genealogy Community on Google+ in the left, under "Hangouts - previous."

I still may do a blog post on this, but wanted to get an answer to you: RE: Having information on a Find-A-Grave memorial that you do not own. You have the information and you want to Include a Citation with that information.

When it's my Memorial, mostly when I took the picture, I post what I see in the Photograph. My parents were cremated and buried in a memorial garden, with only a plaque, with birth and death Years.. That is what I post, as the source of that information comes from the Image on that memorial. I will leave it that way. My contact information is there, so if someone wants more detail, then can contact me.

Now, If I were to post an obituary on that memorial page, I can Add Bio or Add Note. I would add a Note and cite the newspaper where that obit came from.

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=46833067

That is an example of what I am talking about. The Obit was in the newspaper at the top of the memorial page. Not mine, but my uncles.

Now, Lets say that I created a memorial for one of your people. You have information that you would like on My Memorial. You can contract me, using the link with the contributors name, and you say that you have information for the Memorial. If I knew you were family, I would transfer the Memorial over to you. You have the information, its your family, I would gladly transfer the memorial to family.

OR, I would ask for the information that you have, including the Citation Information, and I would post that information, including the Citation, in the Add Notes field.

In the example above, a local university has students populate Obituaries to Find-A-Grave for the Local Burial Grounds. So, many of the memorials in that cemetery were done by the university. Not sure how that did it, but may be the student used my 2nd example, where the student provided the information and the Memorial Creator uploaded it. Don't know.

In my example: I do not own the memorial, but I took and posted the pictures. I probably provided the links to the other family members, don't remember. I was looking for something else, when I saw the memorial the 2nd time (after I posted the pictures) the Obit was there. 

In my database now, i would have a citation for the Memorial, I would have a Citation for the Pictures, AND I found the Obit in the Newspaper, so I would have a Citation for the Newspaper article. In this case, (my picture) I would include that Picture in my Online Tree. If I have a picture that someone else took, I would Cite the information from that pictures, but mark that picture as PRIVATE in my online tree so that it would not be seen in my tree.

Hopefully, that answers your question. I have blogged about most of this. The piece that I didn't blog about was the question about posting Notes with a Citation, from family or from a non-owner of the Memorial. I have transferred a number of memorials to get that memorial into the hands of family.

Russ
