Simona MacAngus wrote in to say she loves the Genealogy Gems Podcast iTunes App

“You have a fantastic podcast!  And I have to say, you have such a clear pleasant speaking style that is a pleasure to listen to.  You keep a "smile" in your voice throughout the podcast.  Wonderfully refreshing and one can catch every word you speak.”


“We have been spending a lot of time together lately Lisa Louise.  You have been going with me on walks with my dog, on drives into the town and even talking me to sleep at night! Finally I went to your  site today to subscribe to your newsletter.  Its like I can't get enough of what you have to teach.” 



“Hi Lisa, I've only recently started my genealogy and listening to your various podcasts has been a huge help with my research. You're so warm and friendly that it makes it a pleasure to listen.”

Brandt asked about Buffered Paper:

Go to the Amazon link on the Genealogy Gems site and do a search on:

Archival Methods 8 x 10" White Archival Paper, Package of 100 Sheets

Buffer paper is not always called "Buffered" - in fact you tend to get a lot of other types of results.  What you're looking for is Paper buffered with calcium carbonate 2-3% alkaline reserve, pH 9 ±0.5, acid-free



Ann and Barbara were wondering the same thing: do you have to have a Paypal account to sign up for Premium Membership?


Answer: No,You can pay with a credit card through paypal without having to have a paypal account. 

You will see in the bottom left corner of the check out page (where it also asks you to log in to Paypal) "Don't have a Paypal account?" and you just click the CONTINUE link to pay with a major credit card.  It's the same as swiping it at any store.  I've been using Paypal for 4 years now and have never ever had a problem.  It's is very safe and secure!
