Genealogy Gems Podcast

This is just a quick post to let everyone know that I was recently interviewed by Lisa Louise Cooke, of the Genealogy Gems podcast.

We talked about the research behind my three-part blog series on my great-aunt Alice.  We also discussed my other blog, Pet Cemetery Stories and my efforts to find all the human buried at Aspin Hill.

It was my second appearance on the Genealogy Gems podcast, the first having occurred last year.

Lisa Louise Cooke is more than just a podcast host.  She is an acclaimed expert in genealogy who travels extensively to teach research techniques at conferences, libraries, historical societies, etc.  I consider it an honor to be asked to appear on her podcast more than once.

I was honored to be interviewed by Lisa Louise Cooke for her podcast, Genealogy Gems.  Lisa is well-known and respected in the field of genealogy.  She travels widely, speaking and teaching at conferences and genealogy societies.  Her free podcast is downloaded an average of 35,000 times per month.

The episode in which I was featured pulled stories from this blog, and wove them into a fascinating story of a part of my family’s history.  I was surprised and moved that Lisa chose to devote an entire hour to it.  It is not only informative from a genealogical point of view, but Lisa turned it into an entertaining narrative.  I hope you will take time to listen to it, or at least read the summary in the show notes.  Both are available via the link below.
