Saturday Night Genealogy Fun: Your “Favorite” Genealogy Researchers, Speakers, Writers?

It’s time for Saturday Night Genealogy Fun with Randy Seaver on Genea-Musings. This week’s challenge is one that takes some thought to remember and retrieve all those names!

1)  Who are your favorite genealogy researchers, speakers or writers?  Who do you learn from?  Please list ten or more genealogists who contribute to your genealogy education and experience through books, magazines, videos, podcasts, social media, websites, blogs, webinars, seminars, conferences, presentations, workshops, meetings, other ways or venues, etc.  

Randy has set the quality bar with his lengthy response!

Mine aren’t in any particular order either, except I’m thinking of speakers first:

Peggy Lauritzen – Speaker
Thomas MacEntee – Speaker
Thomas Jones – Speaker
Judy G. Russell – Speaker and blogger
Cyndi Ingle – Speaker
Elizabeth Shown Mills – Speaker, author of Evidence Explained
Jill Morelli – Speaker and instructor (I took her advanced Swedish research class at the Applied Genealogy Institute – it was excellent.)
Gena Philibert-Ortega – Speaker and blogger
Melissa Barker – Speaker and blogger
Randy Seaver – Speaker and blogger (Randy leads two groups at Chula Vista Genealogical Society, speaks/teaches for about an hour in each group, sharing all kinds of interesting info about general research and DNA)
Diana Elder and Nicole Dyer – Speakers and bloggers
Roberta Estes – Speaker and blogger
Marian B. Wood – Speaker and blogger
Cari Taplin – Speaker and blogger – Genealogy Pants
Kenneth Marks – Blogger
Amy Cohen – Blogger – Brotmanblog: A Family Journey
Teresa – Blogger – writing my past
Gordon Harris – Blogger – The Ipswich Antiquarian
Lisa S. Gorrell – Blogger
Jacqi Stevens – Blogger, A Family Tapestry
Marcia Crawford Philbrick – Blogger
A Pearl – Blogger
DiAnn Iamarino Ohama – Blogger – Fortify Your Family Tree

I am sure I must be omitting someone. If so, I’ll edit later when I remember!

Thank you Randy for this week’s challenge. I had to put some thought into this one.

  1. You have many of my favorites on your list, too, some that I forgot about. Aren’t we lucky to have so many wonderful people in the genealogy world to share their expertise?

  2. Thanks for including me in your list 🙂 I’m still working on mine…was deep into recording proper sources for my next post about John and his brothers.
