Geni Podcast – Genealogy Research Log

Each week I record a short podcast for Geni and the topics cover some aspect of genealogy and family history.

In this week’s podcast entitled Genealogy Research Logs, I discuss why every genealogist – beginner, intermediate and advanced – really needs a genealogy research log and how to create one that works for you and your research.

You can find all my past podcasts on the Geni blog by clicking here.
