  • Best Family History Podcast

    I been listening to this podcast for years. I am glad I found it when I first began my hobby of family genealogist. Fisher gives a lot of great stories that underscore the best reason to learn about our ancestors- their personal story. He also gives great tips & advice. Love all his guests & experts too. Keep up the good work Fisher.
