Monday’s with Myrt Webinar

Yesterday, I listed to Dear Myrtle's (Pat Richley-Erickson) first webinar in her new series, “Mondays with Myrt”. What a delightful way to spend an hour or so listening to her and her cousin, Russ Worthington, who kept everything in running order.

She had, as special guest, Denise Levenick, The Family Curator blogger www.thefamilycurator.com, and author of a new book, How to Archive Family Keepsakes.

Pat and Denise talked about different aspects of archiving family heirlooms and how to go about doing that, and gave some advice on setting-up one's own archives.

Dear Myrt then had a lightning round at the end of the program in which listeners phoned in and told her how they archived their own family keepsakes.

And one more important thing to mention is that Dear Myrt asked people to enter the 2012 Share a Memory contest, and pne of the winners was Diane Rogers, the person behind the British Columbia Genealogy Society blog at http://www.bcgs.ca, and her own personal blog called CanadaGenealogy, or 'Jane's Your Aunt', at http://canadagenealogy.blogspot.com.

In her blog post of September 26, 2012 entitled, “My Childhood Room - Pink, Pink - My Share A Memory”, she talks about her childhood memory of her room in the house (she even has a floor plan of her bedroom, which she drew), and everything in the room was in her favourite coluor - PINK!

Congratulations, Diane!
