Lisa Louise Cooke in Sacramento

Lisa Louise Cooke was in Sacramento last week (8 Jan 2012) to give a presentation on "Common Surname Search Strategies" using Google.

I have been doing Google searches for a long time but I learned something new. I always do from Lisa.

If you have never attended one of her presentations I highly recommend it. I also recommend her books; The Genealogist's Google Toolbox, Genealogy Gemsand Ultimate Research Strategies. And I'm happy to report that she is coming out with a brand new one called, Everything You Need To Know About Finding Your Family History in Newspapers. You can read more about it here.
It was nice to see Lisa again. I know you have been waiting for the blog with my interview of Lisa, well wait no longer it is the post following this one.Yes, I am unabashedly a Lisa Louise Cooke fan. ( Right after the SOPA blackout that is, don't know about it, read about it here and here.)

Have you listened to her podcast yet? You haven't? Well, what are you waiting for? Go here and have a listen, it's free (unless you love it so much you want to sign up for the Premium Podcast like I did.) And if you don't know what a podcast is that's ok, I didn't know either. Podcasts are like a radio show that you listen to through your computer or you can download them onto your iPod or MP3 player.

I'm not the only one who enjoyed Lisa's presentation. Several of my friends from my local genealogical society, Root Cellar, were there and this is what they have to say about it. Root Cellar Blog

Lisa Louise Cooke will be presenting in San Mateo in April and at the Southern California Genealogical Jamboree in June. For other places Lisa will be speaking see her website here.
