Getting Off the Fence

Taking a cue from DearMyrtle, I decided to finally "get off the fence" and order a copy of The Researcher's Guide to American Genealogy so I can better participate in the Just Genealogy Second Life book club.  So now I'm fervently checking my email for the download link.  I'm hoping to carve out some time this weekend to delve into it!

I couldn't make the last discussion, but the first one in August was outstanding!  I'm really beginning to enjoy collaborating online to discuss, consider, and explore ways to improve my research.  Many times my genealogy research has been kind of solitary, but between blogs, Facebook, Google+, webinars, and now Second Life, connecting with others has never been easier, or more fun!

Good for you, Chris. And your copy is arriving none to soon. We're discussing 1 chapter per week each Tuesday in October at the Just Genealogy Fire Pit in Second Life.

See you there soon!
Myrt :)

I was excited to see the updated calendar this past week (part of my motivation to get moving!). Looking forward to it VERY much!!

Thanks for stopping by and commenting, and of course for your excellent motivation!

I picked up a copy at the local library, but wishing I had the extra monies to buy it.

I enjoyed the SL session the other night. Glad my son's work schedule is working to let me participate.

I agree, there are lots of things out there now to learn and educate with others to make it more enjoyable. To learn from each others experiences....

Very well said Tina!
