Top Notch Genealogy Help & Interesting Stories

I've listend to this podcast with host Scott Fisher for several years and always learn something new to help me in my genealogy research. Covers all the bases. Professionally done with a planned segmented format each week and just the right length to enjoy on a nice walk. Transcribed also which is helpful. It's not just great, it is the best!

The best!

This is the only genealogy podcast I listen to regularly, and I have tried many. The magazine format moves along without dragging, the features are interesting, and I pick up little bits to try out later. David Allen Lambert adds a conversational tone to the start of each episode, and featured guests are knowledgeable.
