The #1 job of family history research is to take ancestors from names on paper to multidimensional people who lived, breathed, loved, lost, and helped us to be who we are. In this work, I am all about best evidence and best practices. This podcast is an extension of my classroom, a hybrid teaching and chat session where you'll find the best ways to get the most out of online genealogy tools. I'll give you tips, tricks, and stories from my 37 years of research about mistakes and triumphs in genealogy, folklore, and family history work. I'll discuss using Ancestry, FamilySearch, Newspapers.com, Find-a-Grave and more. I'll also have special tips and tricks for Mormon genealogists, and features on aspects of African-American and recent-immigrant genealogy. My anecdotes come from interesting searches and finds in my own tree and my clients' trees. If you have a question that you'd like answered, let me know - I'll do my best to address it!
