Presenter: Dear MYRTLE

DearMYRTLE is the nom de plume of Pat Richley-Erickson, author of the award-winning DearMYRTLE Genealogy Blog, consistently among the top 5 family history blogs internationally, where her focus is on beginning genealogy topics. A speaker at regional and national conferences including several live videocasts at RootsTech2011, 2012 and 2013, Ol' Myrt is slated to present two G+ Hangout on Air workshops at RootsTech 2014. DearMYRTLE is a co-founder of the Genea-Quilters group on Facebook, and founder of, a centralized calendar and blog for all known genealogy webinar hosts and virtual presenters. Have fun watching Myrt LIVE on "Mondays with Myrt" on DearMYRTLE’s YouTube Channel and Google+ Community. Online since 1985 in membership development with Q-Link's Your Family Tree and later on the leadership team of AOL's Golden Gate Genealogy Forum, Pat is a retired post-secondary computer instructor.  She and her husband live in Salt Lake City, Utah, just a stone's throw from the Family History Library.
