Jeg hadde gleden av å høre Josh Taylor i fjor, han er utrolig bra. Han har også vært med i flere av "Who do you think you are" episodene, og han har vært med i "Genealogy Roadshow".  Anbefales! Flere kan kanskje også ha gleden av "Become an iPad Power User" - selvom jeg ikke har tenkt å høre på det.... men flere av disse foredragene er "internasjonale" - du trenger ikke å tenke på at "dette har ikke noe med norsk slektsforskning å gjøre"... dette som man ser, er mer om metoder og teknologi enn kilder osv.

Ved å finne nr. på foredragene her kan du så finne  materiale fra foredragsholderne her.
