Generations Cafe


Generations Cafe is all about genealogy and family history. Discovering your family history should be enjoyable! Each episode will show you more about doing genealogy without the frustration. Host Amy Johnson Crow has been involved in family history for most of her life and is a noted researcher, blogger, author, and educator. She firmly believes that it is possible to do good genealogy research and enjoy the process. This isn’t a stuffy or dry lecture. It’s a conversation to help you explore the most exciting history of all: yours! Grab a cuppa, pull up a chair, and let’s explore family history together.

If you’re pulling out the one fact that you were looking for in a genealogy source, jotting it down, and then moving on… you’re probably leaving a lot behind.

Taking a closer look at that source might help you discover the answer you were looking for. Even if it doesn’t spell out the answer, that deeper dive will likely give you ideas on other places you can look.

In this episode, Amy Johnson Crow explains how knowing more about the type of record you’re using can help in your search. She’ll also share tips about pulling out more information from specific records, including an overlooked type of word.
