I won’t lie, I selfishly loved having the chance to chat genealogy with Laurie on this episode. It’s something I’ve always been fascinated by, and I feel has an ever-evolving importance in a society that is focusing on minimalism and changing family structures.

We Discussed:

    • What are some of the areas a genealogist can be beneficial.
    • Risks and rewards of DNA testing.
    • What legacy means when you don’t know your biological family or aren’t having kids of your own.
    • How to get started finding your family’s story.


As a genealogist accredited by the International Commission for the Accreditation of Professional Genealogists (ICAPGenSM), Laurie Hermance-Moore helps clients craft their family’s legacy. With thirty years of research experience, she creatively solves difficult research problems, ensuring that stories are uncovered and captured for future generations.  When she’s not working with her clients or serving as a leader in state and national genealogical organizations, she loves diving into Midwest history—often on her bike–on the many historic rail and canal trails in Ohio.
