I recently became really interested in t he Who Do You Think You Are? TV series. It sparked off a whole new passion for me. I just signed up for your Genealogy Gems Newsletter and I've been listening to the Genealogy Gems and Family Tree podcasts. As a newbie, they have been an asset to my research with all your tips and help. Thank you very much! It's so exciting each time I discover a new ancestor to connect to my family tree or find a document giving me a little more insight or verification. It is absolutely amazing to see how not that long ago, an ancestor came to America or how they were involved in a significant historical event. So thank you for all your recommendations, interviews, and for creating such a fun and informative podcast to listen to. I can't wait to show off what I have found to my family.
