    It’s always a pleasure to meet with George Morgan and Drew Smith to chat about family history news and events. You can listen to the latest Genealogy Guys Podcast here, recorded at the Southern California Genealogical Society Jamboree in Burbank, California on June 7, 2014. Episode #270 includes interviews with

    • Denise Levenick, The Family Curator
    • Daniel Horowitz, Chief Genealogist at MyHeritage, and
    • Paul Woodbury, winner of the 2014 Suzanne Winsor Freeman Memorial Student Genealogy Grant.

    In the first segment, we talked about some of the intriguing and curious family keepsakes I discovered inside my Grandmother Arline’s steamer trunk, and how family historians can safely preserve the treasures they inherit, as well as

    • how to free photos from those horrible 1970s sticky “magnetic albums” with the help of the Micro Spatula wonder-tool
    • orphan heirlooms, what they are and what happens to them
    • the debut Heirloom Roadshow presentation at Jamboree
    • a tip for identifying UFO photographs

    George G. Morgan and Drew Smith are long-time supporters of the Suzanne Winsor Freeman Student Memorial Grant, and two of my mother’s favorite genealogists, so it’s especially heartwarming to talk with them about the student grant program honoring her memory.

    This episode of the Genealogy Guys Podcast also includes an interview with Paul Woodbury, recipient of the 2014 Student Grant.  Paul shares his personal family history journey and talks about his career goals in the growing field of genetic genealogy.
