- Laura is interviewed by Drew Smith during the FGS/NEHGS 2006 Conference in Boston. We talk about Mac genealogy, using academic archives, and keeping on top of things in the genealogy world. We also have lots of fun and laughs. Go to The Genealogy Guys website, GenealogyGuys.com and look for the 2 October 2006 podcast. In iTunes, search for Genealogy Guys under podcasts.
