WSJ Article Mentions NGS -- When a Genealogy Hobby Digs Up Unwanted Secrets

Source: http://www.livedigitally.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/spoilers-ahead.jpg 


The Wall Street Journal published an article on genealogy yesterday interviewing NGS board member, Terry Koch-Bostic. The article highlights the secrets most of us find when researching our family history. Terry says that "everyone is caught off guard by some findings," and "some are really shocking and surprising."

Be sure to also watch the video that accompanies the article.

Unfortunately, the reporter made an error on our name, calling us the 'National Genealogy Society' instead of the 'National Genealogical Society,' which we will just consider yet another example of a reason to double check your source citations: Anyone can make a mistake!
