We are excited to have an early Web genealogy pioneer as our guest on Family Roots Radio for the 15 February webcast. Matt Helm began categorizing genealogy websites way back in 1994 and has been a leading figure in the field ever since. His Genealogy Toolbox was one of the first large collections of links and thousands of people have been able to find their ancestors due to his care in developing that list.
Matt and his wife April are also the authors of the best selling Genealogy Online for Dummies, now in it's third edition. In recent years, he's been making all of our research easier by digitizing old documents and posting them on the web. Many of the sources in his HistoryKat collection are not available online anywhere else. In addition, his Genealogy Portal provides a unique index to a diverse number of obscure genealogy sites.
With such an expert on Internet genealogy, you'll certainly want to tune in as we discuss effective ways to search the Internet for ancestors and relatives.
