This blog is all about genealogy. I am a college student who has been bitten by the genealogy bug. This is my place to share my family tree, my tips and suggestions, along with my genealogy related opinions.
Note:I am very happy to share this press release from Lisa Louise Cooke about her brand new iPhone and iTouch app. She is the author of the wonderful Genealogy Gems Podcast. She is also a very talented speaker (I know from experience because I've seen two of her classes and they were phenomenal!). She is one of my genealogy idols and an incredibly fun person to be around. While I haven't tried this product out (only because I don't have an iPhone or iTouch), I know that Lisa only puts out quality products and puts her hard work into every project she does.
