Good Ol' Myrt....

I can't say enough about our next blogger.  I have followed her since some of her early days online when I was just starting college. We finally got to meet when she moved out West to get away from all of those long Florida summers <grin>. I am of course talking about DearMYRTLE (aka - Pat Richley-Erickson), that wonderful down-to-earth genealogy guru that many know and love.
DearMYRTLE has done about everything there is to do in genealogy.  Besides her blog, she has done podcasts, webinars, books, online lesson materials, panel discussions, et cetera, et cetera, etc.   Boy, I wish I knew where she finds all the time!
It was DearMYRTLE's recent webinars on blogging (hosted by Legacy Family Tree) that were an amazing help in getting me to finish up all of my preparations for this blog and I so appreciate her advice and tutelage.
Make sure you watch her blog for always-helpful and very practical information on things technical as well as living life as a organized, fun-loving genealogist.  I also hear she is a pretty good grandma as well!
