1940 Census WHAT to do with it? - Oh what fun!!

There are perks to being DearMYRTLE's daughter, one of which is being invited to participate in webinars with people who have years of experience under their belts. In other words, color me intimidated! But my mom taught me well, and though I was shaking the whole time, my first official genealogy webinar presentation went off without a hitch.

Monday night, was baptism by fire. I joined Myrt and Russ Worthington in a follow up to the 1940 Census release. For the first part of the night I had fun chatting with people on twitter using #DearMYRTLE. I was grateful for the friendly banter to help calm my nerves as I prepared to share on using custom Google Maps to share your genealogy. It wasn't perfect, I made mistakes ... but I had a BLAST!!

As promised, here's the recording, enjoy!

  1. Carrie,

    You did a wonderful job. A pro, thinking out of the box. I had a great time working with you, in support of Dear MYRTLE in demonstrating what we might do with all of this new information that we gathered.

    I think the message of this Webinar, is the each of use gathers and records out information in our own way, and added the topping, by showing what to do next.

    Congratulations on a job well done.

    Thank you,


  2. Russ,
    Thanks so much, that really means a lot coming from you!! :D
