Top Tips

Host Lisa Louise Cooke digs into the archive and shares two of her favorite interviews from the past.

The first comes from Episode 83 which was published in April of 2015. The theme for the episode was source citation, and in the Family Tree University Crash Course segment Shannon Comb-Bennett, instructor of the Family Tree University: Source Citations for Regular People course made an eloquent case for citing your sources.

The other favorite interview was first published in March of 2014. In the 101 Best Websites Lisa got to cover one of her favorite websites, Digital Public Library of America. Lisa interviewed Dan Cohen, Executive Director of the DPLA, and he took us on a tour of this terrific website.
