Tune in for a host of ideas for advancing your genealogy this summer: In the Top Tips segment, author Sunny Morton shares advice for gathering family history during your family reunion. And before you go buy a “family crest” to show off at the reunion, listen to Lisa’s conversation with Sharon DeBartolo Carmack about heraldry. Lisa and publisher/editorial director Allison Stacy also talk about genealogy events happening this summer where you can boost your research skills and meet the Family Tree Magazine staff. Those with Swedish roots will want to be sure to listen to the 101 Best Web Sites segment on Genline, a subscription Web site with digitized church records and other documents. And if you’re stuck, learn about online services that help you find a researcher for hire.Your Host:Lisa Louise Cooke
