Research like a Pro: Chinese genealogy

I’m very excited to share with you my first ever podcast.

Please join me on Research Like a Pro with Nicole Dyer and Diana Elder. I discuss the ins and outs of Chinese genealogy over the course of almost 45 minutes. Enjoy.

RLP 271: Mariah Brockhouse: English Emigrant and Pioneer The Research Like a Pro Genealogy Podcast

Today's episode of Research Like a Pro is about our ancestor, Mariah (Brockhouse) Beddoes who left her parents in England with her husband and two young daughters to join with other Latter-day Saints in Utah Territory. Mariah was born in Willinghall, England, and her father was a locksmith. She married William Beddoes, a miner, and they eventually had a family of 13 children. The stories about Mariah's departure from England are heart-breaking. She left her parents behind to never see them again.  Links Mariah (Brockhouse) Beddoes (1842-1926), English Emigrant and Pioneer Mariah's Life History at FamilySearch History of the Ozarks Vol. 2 by Brooks Blevins (affiliate link) Research Like a Pro Resources Airtable Research Logs Quick Reference – by Nicole Dyer – Research Like a Pro: A Genealogist's Guide book by Diana Elder with Nicole Dyer on – Research Like a Pro Webinar Series 2023 – monthly case study webinars including documentary evidence and many with DNA evidence –  Research Like a Pro eCourse – independent study course – RLP Study Group – upcoming group and email notification list – Research Like a Pro with DNA Resources Research Like a Pro with DNA: A Genealogist's Guide to Finding and Confirming Ancestors with DNA Evidence book by Diana Elder, Nicole Dyer, and Robin Wirthlin – Research Like a Pro with DNA eCourse – independent study course – RLP with DNA Study Group – upcoming group and email notification list – Thank you Thanks for listening!

Attending a conference brings nearly unlimited benefits: not only do you learn advanced research techniques but you also get to meet people who like spending their time learning about advanced research techniques.

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”!
