GenFriends: Lessons Learned from Finding Your Roots. Season 7: Episodes 2 & 3

The panel, Dan Earl, Laura Hedgecock, Shelley Murphy, and Mary Kircher Roddy, and I discuss lessons learned from two recent episodes of Finding Your Roots on this week's GenFriends. Soundex methods, naming patterns, social history, and context along with newspapers and other records are some of the topics we discuss.

Watch as they share their thoughts on the records and methodologies used to discover family for the celebrities and how we can use them in our own research.
