Mondays and Genealogy News go Hand and Hand


DearMyrtle Mondays with Myrt

Genealogy news is always fun with Mondays with Myrt. I receive e-mails with updates from the societies and organization I’m members of. Facebook pages also provide updates. However, the way Facebook, life and time merge or don’t merge at times it is good to have an open concept like Dear Myrtle’s Monday’s with Myrt to keep us up to date. I love hearing other people’s opinions of the updates from the past week. I don’t always agree with the opinions. The opinions do give me a challenge to my thought process, to open up the conversation and open my mind to new concepts.

My goals today:

  1. Watch Mondays with Myrt
  2. Keep an open mind to new concepts
  3. Work on my first four generation family tree weak areas (I already added to city directory sources to my father and mother’s profile)
  4. Continue getting organized the best way I can
  5. Stay on track or at least try not to follow the Bright Shiny Objects
