Our Interview with Nathan Dylan Goodwin, Genealogy Mystery Novelist

The main character in Nathan Dylan Goodwin's series uses records to solve crimes. We caught up with Goodwin to learn about the methodology behind his stories.

While genealogists often think of themselves as detectives, not many have the opportunity to solve actual crimes using their research. But in the”Forensic Genealogist” series by Nathan Dylan Goodwin, researcher Morton Farrier does just that. In each installment, Morton uses his wit and genealogical skills to uncover the past and solve decades-old mysteries.

Family Tree Magazine Contributing Editor Sunny Jane Morton met with Goodwin at RootsTech 2019 to learn more about the research methods behind Morton’s genealogical finds.

You can learn more about Goodwin on his website. He published the first novel in the series, Hiding the Past, in 2012. And the most recent novel, The Wicked Trade, came out in 2018.
