In my Introduction to Genetic Genealogy course at the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy (coordinated by Paul Woodbury), I had the great good fortune to meet our Hive Minder Nicole Dyer, and that’s how I got to be on her wonderful podcast.

    1. I’ve finally found time to listen to it – what an experience to hear yourself recorded in a long form conversation – and I’m so very grateful to Diana and Nicole both for the invite and for the absolute professionalism. Of course, because they truly embody “Research like a pro”!
