Marie Peer asked who the podcast guest was that provided custom family charts:  Janet Hovorka of Generation Maps.  Marie wrote: "Thank you for the excellent podcasts.  I really enjoy listening to them.  I keep thinking that you are going to run out of topics but you don't. You are very creative."

Darren Engh posted on Facebook about a website he really likes called for records in Norway.  He asked for recommendations for information about Candian immigration.  Lisa recommends the book Destination Canada by Dave Obee. (This link supports this free podcast - thanks!!)
