DIG: Family Search Help and Genealogy Gems

Are you looking for more expert advice, a bit more entertainment, or maybe the ability to get your family history fix on the go? Check out family history sleuth, author, speaker, genealogist, podcast host, tech & search-guru (did I miss anything) Lisa Louise Cooke and her website genealogygems.tv.

When Lisa's not on the road teaching at seminars (and even when she is), she hosts a podcast about every 2 weeks call the Genealogy Gems Podcast. Here she updates listeners on the recent news and happenings in the world of genealogy, answers your questions, passes on helpful tips, and talks with other industry leaders. For those of you who don't know what a podcast is, think a pre-recorded radio broadcast that you can download and listen to at your own convenience on either your computer or your iPod/mp3 player. The show is available FREE from the iTunes store (under podcasts) or via her website where you can download the files directly or listen directly in the web browser.

Speaking of your web browser, I highly recommend the Genealogy Gems Toolbar. The toolbar can play (stream) the Genealogy Gems podcasts directly while you surf the web and provides a bunch of hand-picked genealogy links as well as keeping you up to date with the show.

Want more? Lisa's completed another podcast series for beginners titled "Family History Made Easy" and also hosts a postcast for Family Tree Magazine, both are great resources and are available on iTunes.

So take a listen, and I hope you like what you hear. Lisa's the best in the business and it shows. She also makes my morning commute to work fly by!
