Tips from a Pro: Civil Birth Records

The Family History: Genealogy Made Easy podcast is really like having your own personal family history research class free online. And I love having the luxury of devoting entire episodes, and sometimes multiple episodes, to a specific step in the research process.

In this week's episode we're all about Civil Birth Records. And who knew there was so much more to learn?!

But who to ask? I called on my friend Holly Hansen, President of the Family History Expos to find out. Holly holds conferences all over the U.S. and has the top genealogists speak at her events. So I asked her, "who comes to mind when you think of birth record expertise?"

"That's easy" she replies, "Arlene Eakle!"

And in Family History: Genealogy Made Easy Episode 25 you will have a personal session with professional genealogist Arlene Eakle, Ph.D. on the topic of Civil Birth Records. What they encompass, where to find them, tips on the challenges you may face and the solutions she's discovered over her long career.


Be sure and sign up for the FREE Genealogy Gems e-newsletter for updates on what's coming up in both podcasts as well as extra tips & great websites. And best of all you'll receive a link to the free downloadable 20 page e-book 5 Fabulous Google Research Strategies for the Family Historian as a thank you gift!
