DearMYRTLE's Family History Hour

DearMYRTLE’s Family History Hour is always very educational; I set aside time each week to spend with her.

The 21 August 2007 genealogy podcast, however, really caught my interest. Myrt gave us the opportunity to listen to two of my favorite genealogy bloggers, Jasia of Creative Gene and Schelly of Tracing the Tribe. They discussed a topic we bloggers have all been posting about recently - “Genealogist vs. Family Historian,” What Do We Call Ourselves? They did a fantastic job of representing the genealogy blogging community as well as their individual views, giving us an extremely interesting and relevant segment of the Family History Hour podcast.

As a blogging community we correspond through email, comments, scanfest, and our blogs, but it was wonderful to actually hear the voices of two of our best. Jasia, Schelly, I love reading you both, but I really enjoyed listening to you.

Bravo DearMYRTLE! A great idea, a great hour!

Awww shucks. It was nuttin.


It was actually fun to do and although I was a bit nervous I wasn't as nervous as I thought I'd be.

Thanks for promoting the podcast and my blog. It's so wonderful to have you for my friend!

Thank you for letting your readers know about our adventure in podcasting. Working with both colleagues was fun and added a new dimension to our cooperation.
And a major thanks for mentioning the blog.
