Genealogy Gems Podcast (Follow Friday)

Last time I recommended you my first ever listened genealogy podcast from the Genealogy Guys – it was a pleasure to listen and I watched out for more genealogy in my ears :)

Today I would like to recommend you Genealogy Gems Podcast from Lisa Louise Cooke. I already listened to three episodes and it was lot of fun! Lisa has a nice style to talk about genealogy and her laugh bings me a smile of my face …

Genealogy Gems Podcast

The current issue is no. 79 and is a live podcast from the FamilyHistory Expo in Mesa, AZ.

From Lisa’s Blog:

It was such a treat for us to take The Genealogy Gems Podcast on the road this last weekend to the Family History Expo in Mesa, Arizona.  Recording from my studio is enjoyable and comfy, but can’t compare with doing the show in front of a live audience!  What a blast!  And it’s available for listening now!

Of course I had some terrific guests lined up for Episode 79 who lit up the stage.  (Above Gena Philibert Ortega of Gena’s Genealogy Blog.)  Gena inspired the audience to venture into the world of Genealogy Blogs by explaining what they are, how to find them, and how to subscribe.  She even treated them to a photos posted moments before she took the stage which certainly conveyed the immediacy of blogging.

Then Thomas MacEntee of Geneabloggers delivered loads of fun and blogger beads…
