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 201: Coming to the Table with Suzanne Lowe The Research Like a Pro Genealogy Podcast

Today's episode of Research Like a Pro is an interview with Suzanne Campbell Lowe. In 2005, Suzanne learned from a white cousin about her Campbell family's connection — through slavery — to a black man named James Meredith. Over the course of the next several years, Suzanne's white and black families have built their relationships and explored their descendancy from their common ancestor: a prominent white leader of the Confederacy named J.A.P. Campbell. Join us as we discuss Suzanne's journey getting to know her black cousins and learning about African American research.

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”!
