I am just back from attending the Family History Expo in St. George Utah. And once again my Google classes were packed! In fact I got word that both my Google: A Goldmine of Genealogy Gems Parts 1 and 2 classes broke attendance records. Here are some of the folks you're going to hear from on today's show-
We talked about how to set up a genealogy iGoogle page, Google Alerts, Site Search and a wide range of brand new Google tools that can be used to move your research forward.
MAILBOX: I got an email from Tina Kelly who lives in the United Kingdom and she has a question about obtaining vital records here in the U.S. and since I have lots of listeners outside the U.S. I thought this would be worth sharing.
GEM: Interview with Steve Nickle, President of Familylink.com Steve Nickle, President of Familylink.com shares some exciting news about a new website they are preparing to launch called GenSeek.
GEM: Part 2 Interview with Darby Hinton of Daniel Boone Fame In our last episode #60 we got to spend some time with Darby Hinton who was a child star back in the 1960s, and for six of those years he played Isreal the son of Daniel Boone played by Fess Parker in the hit TV series Daniel Boone.
In part 2 of my interview with Darby and his wife Shan I get to
share what I found on the Hinton Family History.
I've got more genealogy podcasting for you over at the Family History: Genealogy Made Easy podcast. In Episode 21 I'm going to share a tool with you that will help you navigate your genealogy research. It's called the Genealogical Proof Standard, or GPS. And my special guest on the show is Mark Tucker of the ThinkGenealogy blog who has created a terrific visual map of the GPS.
