The #1 job of genealogy is to take ancestors from names on paper to multidimensional people who lived, breathed, loved, lost, and helped us to be who we are. 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 research tools. I provide lessons on best evidence and best practices, and stories from my 38 years of mistakes and triumphs in genealogy, folklore, and family history work. I discuss Ancestry, FamilySearch, Newspapers.com, Find-a-Grave and more. I focus a lot on how you can get involved in African-American and Reparational genealogy regardless of your ancestral ethnicity. And then, there are the interviews. I talk with researchers in all phases of their growth, and I even talk food on the Family Cookbook episodes.
