Eclectica Tuesday - This Week's Genealogy Finds

I receive blog posts, and other items, in Feedly, email, Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and some of them have links of interest.  Here are some of the "genealogical eclectica" that's recently crossed my desk - information that I want you to know about:

7)  The Monday, 1 July, "Mondays with Myrt" Hangout On air is also on YouTube at http://youtu.be/gw3euKIxr70.  I'm usually a panelist on this show.  We discussed Old vs. New Search, and many more topics, on this show.
