In this episode we talk with Lucy Anglin and Katie Crane who connected over research into Marguerite Lindsay. Marguerite was Lucy’s great aunt and her story caught Katie’s eye when she was researching for another project. We discuss their connection, their research, and tips on how to conduct research in online archives and genealogical websites.

Lucy is involved with a group that writes genealogy stories and contribute to the blog Genealogy Ensemble. She has written six stories about Marguerite's life and would like to make them into a small book with the pictures she has of Marguerite. Read a blog piece written by Lucy about Marguerite here!
