DearMyrtle's Family History Hour and fM

footnoteMaven had the honor of being a guest on DearMyrtle's Family History Hour for 28 August 2007.

Let me just say, Myrt is a joy to work with. She's also an absolute pro at putting her guests at ease and eliciting just the right information from those of us more accustomed to writing than to talking. In a matter of minutes she made me feel as if we had been friends forever.

We had a discussion about a blog post I wrote entitled “Get Organized: Store Information Directly In Your Photographs." Photographs are near and dear to the footnoteMaven's heart and keeping track of them is critical. As any good footnoteMaven would, I store the bibliographic information directly in the photograph as well. This way I never have to construct it twice. I hope it works for you.

So, to DearMyrtle, thank you for asking me to be a guest on your Family History Podcast. You are the "Queen of Genea-Bloggers."

DearMYRTLE’s blog post and links for the Family History Hour 28 Aug 2007 genealogy podcast can be found here. The actual podcast can be found here.

And a wonderful interview it was! I listened to it before I went to bed last night. I'm so envious of your photo collection fM. I had no idea it was so extensive. Lucky you!

Thanks for a great listen!

Yes, Myrt is the queen at what she does!

Congratulations! I can't wait to listen to the podcast, and I still have Jasia's and Schelly's to look forward to!

I thoroughly enjoyed your interview with Myrt. I had stopped listening to podcasts when my husband "snitched" my iPod, but the DearMyrtle podcast is a good reason to steal it back, or to listen to her podcast while sitting at my computer.

In addition to the valuable information about metatags and photographs, it was fun to learn more about your family background.

Thanks Everyone:

For me, listening to myself or looking in the mirror gets harder with age and can only be accomplished after a good deal of wine.

It gets harder and harder to put on my makeup without looking and I have years of phone messages because I refuse to listen to the sound of my own voice.
