John Paul Lowens <jplowens@...>

Judy Russell, the Legal Genealogist, participated in a radio program
on NPR ( National Public Radio) today- February 13. Along with Judy
on the program were A.J. Jacobs, editor at large at Esquire Magazine
and author, and Dr. Spencer Wells of National Geographic's Genographic
Project on the program entitled, Crowdsourcing And The New Genealogy
Boom. A.J. Jacobs is the author of the recent New York Timesarticle
on Crowd-Sourcing, "Are You My Cousin" (
which I posted about on February 2nd .

If you are like me and read Judy's blog announcement after the radio
