Throwback Thursday: DearMYRTLE's "Wacky Wednesday - About PERSI"

We're in the silly season of this election (will it ever end??), and I'm a little brain dead tonight after spending the day analyzing DNA matches, so I thought it appropriate that tonight's throwback video is a little silly.

In this October 8, 2014 video, DearMYRTLE's "very distant cousin" Fraulein Schmidt discusses PERSI (Periodical Source Index) with a few other genealogists.  There is some great background information on PERSI, some tips on using it, adding citations to downloaded images from PERSI when they are available, and ideas on obtaining the text of referenced articles when they aren't available online.

I've only started using PERSI at, so an informal discussion like this is just what I needed.
