The Research Like a Pro Genealogy Podcast

We will discuss that and more in our podcast episode today about how to discover your ancestors religion and how to find church records. There are many clues to be gleaned from genealogical records, like inscriptions on headstones and family bibles. There are many places to find collections containing church records as well.
