I think you'll agree TONIGHT'S GUESTS have unique perspectives on genealogy research and will help us figure out how to handle conflicting evidence. And, as usual, you never know what other aspects of genealogy and family history will be covered at GeneaBloggers Radio so tune in! GeneaBloggers Radio is about the most fun you can have with your genealogy on a Friday night!

I'd like to give a shout out to one of the TOP 40 2011 Family Tree Magazine genealogy blog award winners, Jennifer Thornton Woods, who worked at United States Air Force  as a Russian Linguist no less! Her popular blog (in English) is Climbing My Family Tree located at

Of particular interest is a new feature of the blog where Jen’s daughter Ellie, a budding artist has drawn the first in a series of what Jen calls “Genea-Comic” titled The Court Record Lift. Head on over to, and scroll through the posts. Better yet, add ClimbingMyFamilyTree to your blog reader, so you won’t miss a post. You’ll be glad you did.

Hope you enjoy the show. Next Friday, October 7, 2011 GeneaBloggers Radio will return with special host Angela Walton-Raji for a live show on ethnic genealogy including guests Linda Geiger and Lisa Lee. Stay tuned!
Happy family tree climbing!
