The Genealogy Guys enjoyed Thanksgiving with friends and Drew's dessert (a key lime pound cake). Listeners can email for the recipe. George reminded everyone that new content is being added every month to the Genealogy Guys Learn educational subscription site, and there's currently a sale price that is available until December 14.

News You Can Use and Share

  • George discussed the plans by Bruce Buzbee of RootsMagic to delay release of RM 8 until some issues have been addressed. This will push the release into 2020.
  • Drew talked about the new health reports available from MyHeritage through its DNA product, and the new list view for MyHeritage family trees.
  • George and Drew shared new record collections from Findmypast and FamilySearch. 
  • Drew raised the alarm for the USCIS proposed rate increases for obtaining information, and listeners should visit the Records, Not Revenue site to learn more and to register their objections to the new costs.

Blaine T. Bettinger and the DNA Segment

Blaine explained to Drew how the new beta product for 23andMe works in creating proposed family trees based on nothing but DNA matching.  Learn more from Blaine at his DNA Central subscription website.

Cyndi Says with Cyndi Ingle

Cyndi took listeners through the sometimes difficult process of figuring out how the records in online databases were sourced. And don't forget to visit Cyndi's List to find links to all the genealogy sites you'll ever need!

Our Listeners Talk to Us

Leslie asked about research logs, and Drew gave his thoughts on using a blog for a public research log or using Evernote or Microsoft OneNote for a more private and flexible research log.
