Myrtle (Pat Richley) truly is a dear person.
DearMYRTLE has been online since 1995 and involved with all kinds of online genealogy helps and projects.
In fact, she is a pioneer in genealogy audio training on the Internet.
When you go online and investigate the largest, most popular genealogy Web sites, you will find familiar names like: FamilySearch, RootsWeb, and Ancestry.
However, there is another site at the very top of the list that is not run a large company or organization.
Behind the scenes, you will find an individual who has done something amazing for the genealogy world. She is Cyndi Howells, author, speaker, creator of Cyndi’s List, and Family History Hero.
The comprehensive “Cyndi’s List of Genealogy Sites on the Internet” has been going strong since 1996, and now has over 264,400 links for family history.
It is amazing what Cyndi has accomplished over the years and the help she has given to genealogy researchers all over the world. As Cyndi says on her site…
Do you want to see something refreshing? This will make you feel good and give you hope, knowing that some of the younger generation will continue our genealogy research.
You know that the words youth and genealogy are not usually found in the same sentence together.
The older we get, the more we appreciate the value of our family history. That’s why it is rare to see children and teenagers interested in genealogy, and why it is usually the “mature generation” who are involved in researching their family tree.
Meet Elyse: She’s 19 years-old, goes to school, has a boyfriend, loves Harry Potter, and has created 15 videos about genealogy on YouTube.
