About a little over a month ago, I had written a blog post about getting tested through AncestryDNA. I have been evaluating getting the test for years, but the price was always out of my spending range. When it got into the $...

Check out my new video on record analysis. What do those weird letters and numbers mean? Have you ever looked at a record and been totally stuck? Tell us how you worked through it in comments :)

Last year the expo hall had "backblaze" sponsor a mini-session area where speakers would talk for 10 minutes on a variety of topics. They even had a time where anybody could sign up to speak on a topic. Great place to hang out while you eat!

I'll only be tuning into the web sessions but I'm excited for you! Have a great time!

Hey all,
Recently I made a tutorial on Source Citations. If you haven't seen it yet, definitely check it out.

I really enjoyed doing the how-to tutorial, and I'd like to do more. What kinds of how-to topics would you all like to see? What questions can I answer that would help you in your research? Let me know!

Cheers,
Heather

Where did the words that make up your name originally come from? You can find out by reading my "Roots of Male Names" and "Roots of Female Names" books online for free! They show you the Ethiopian and hieroglyphic root words of your name, from the same place where our earliest ancestors' fossils were found 4.4 million years ago in the Middle Awash region of Ethiopia.

The books not only show you the original roots of the words in your name. But also your name in two ancient Egyptian name cartouches. From real hieroglyphic words that were written in ancient Egypt up to 5100 years ago!

See for yourself by going online and reading the books for free at...

Just found your new YouTube videos on GEDMatch.com. I fairly competent with technology and science but my grandfather's DNA results are baffling me. It's the first test I've dealt with. We don't know his biological father. Your three videos explained it to me so well. Thank you!

Indeed! GEDmatch is just such a great resource. Learning how to use it teaches you most everything you need to know to work with a DNA test. The site has a steep learning curve though, so I tried to break it down to the most important essentials. I'm glad it helped :)

Could your children's early years be the key to getting them interested in their family history?

The number of times my mother dragged us off to the cemetery when we didn't want to go is directly responsible for who I am today :)
