Myra Gormley on 15 March Show
Few people have done as much to popularize Internet genealogy in recent years than Myra Vanderpool Gormley. She began her career working for newspapers, so when she started doing serious genealogy, she was a natural to start a newspaper column, "Shaking Your Family Tree" in the early 1980s. It was successfully syndicated into many major newspapers around the country. She was also an early Internet pioneer, starting in 1990 as a genealogy content provider for Prodigy, an early ISP. The growth of the Internet, and the popularity of RootsWeb led to the creation of RootsWeb Review in 1998, with Julia Case, one of the first and largest e-zines for genealogy.
