Enjoy this new genealogy podcast
I heard about this from the Genealogy Guys podcast. Enjoying the topics.
I really enjoyed your first podcast about reviewing our research and writing about our ancestors. I was definitely inspired to set aside perfection and begin doing something with my research. I am going to accept that I am never going to know the whole story and be grateful for what I do know and share that in story form. Thank you I am looking forward to more inspiration from your podcasts.
