Genealogy is the most wonderful of pastimes. I love it, and you should, too. There are endless reasons why. Genealogy is one of the fastest growing hobbies in the western world, as more and more people discover the exhilarating and slightly addictive nature of ancestor hunting. It’s like an ongoing mystery with clues you have to discover and then put together to come to conclusions about your family’s past. The mystery never ends, because there is no end to the amount of time you can potentially go back in history with your family research. Yet, the more you can discover, the more complete picture of your family you can put together. It’s insanely rewarding, and the more you do it, the more you will want to do it. That’s a given.

Informative, instructional, topical & applicable

I’ve listened and enjoyed this brief but useful podcast for a couple years now. About time I write a review! He dishes out helpful genealogical advice and interesting historical insights on people, technology and events in short extremely helpful easy listening chunks. I highly recommend this podcast to any genealogist/family history buff wanting to practice ever more accurate research while understanding where elusive documents relating to hard to track ancestors may be found.

Side note: I checked out the author and his website today. Will offers many helpful free services and even ebooks; FREE genealogical ebooks. One CAN leave donations for the ebooks but frankly I didn’t for fear his website might be a ploy to annoy with constant sales solicitations later. After all his surname is Moneymaker. No joke. Yet I have a pretty firm suspicion this guy is actually a very generous very smart fellow who likes to pay-it-forward by enlightening fellow family historians. Thank you Will! He has a regular newsletter too which appears to include genealogical helps complete with illustrations which are not part of his podcast. It might be that his ebooks are mainly scripts written for his podcasts. But that’s great too because his podcasts are enormously informative plus interesting.

I have one single tiny niggling suggestion- I do wish Will would reduce the number of “you should” “you must” “you need” statements because they sound a bit bossy or authoritarian. I’d rather hear “You might” “Have you considered” “May I suggest” instead.

nice companion to website & newsletter

Always informative and helpful. I like to listen to the podcast in my car during my daily commute & Will never disappoints! His time and effort in helping other genealogists is truly a gift.
