Consistent and Professional

Congratulations on 100 episodes! (Now 101) I love your podcast! I have listened to every one and some of them several times. I have been involved with genealogy for 30 years but realized I was only searching not researching. I love the RLP method and am so grateful for all that you do to teach others. I appreciate the consistency and professionalism of your podcast. It is by far my favorite podcast!

All podcasts

Love all your podcasts! Diana and Nicole have helped this 1 year family researcher tremendously. I especially liked the one where Diana talks about her Alabama ancestor, since my Dad & his side of my family are from AL was very helpful and also episode 82 military records I learned a lot. I started a research log which has saved me time and helped me breakdown 2 brick walls. BTW I’m a RLAP binge listener. 10 stars!!! Thank you for all you both do, LInda
