21 August 2011 ~ Comments Off on Appearance on The Sunday Papers with Rick Kogan, WGN AM Radio

Appearance on The Sunday Papers with Rick Kogan, WGN AM Radio

In case you missed it, early this morning, August 21, 2011, I was a guest on the WGN AM Radio show The Sunday Papers with Rick Kogan.

During the segment, I not only discussed some of the basic trends in the genealogy industry and why family history is becoming more and more popular, but I also had a chance to mention the upcoming FGS 2011 conference in Springfield, Illinois, September 7-10, 2011.

I guess the episode went well since Rick said – live on the air – that he’d love to have my come into the studio for an expanded segment about genealogy! So I’ll keep you posted on the progress of that project!

And many thanks to ISGS member Linda Swisher who used her contacts to arrange for my appearance on The Sunday Papers!

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.
