DearREADERS,
This is the lineup for today's show, now available for you to listen to 24/7 on the web. Please also note the "Links We Mention" and "Listening to the Show" directions below. Myrt's guests include:

Michael Booth, creator of Personal Historian, designed to break down your writing into simple, manageable topics. This puts the FUN back into writing. The program then blends together in a semblance of order for creating a printable or digital book.

Last week we downloaded the free 30-day trial version of the program. This week we learn step-by-step, with the program's author, to create a new project and add lifecapsules.

Reprisal of a still very relevant interview with Katherine Scott Sturdevant, co-author of Bringing Your Family History to Life through Social History and author of Organizing and Preserving Your Heirloom Documents. We're going to talk about the principle of "have totebag will interview," creating open-ended questions, and concentrating on WHAT, WHY & HOW.

The interview also touches on a few points for preserving old documents for future generations. Katherine suggests framing color photocopies rather than exposing the original document to the damaging rays of sunlight.
