Getting to know D. Joshua Taylor, MA, MLS

This fall, our speaker will be D. Joshua Taylor, MA, MLS. If you’re an avid watcher of genealogy television like I am, you may recognize him from various shows. Most recently, he is one of the hosts of the popular PBS series, Genealogy Roadshow. His interest in genealogy dates from an early age (10!), and he credits his grandmother as his earliest genealogical inspiration. When I googled “interview with D. Joshua Taylor”, I found an interesting interview with him at in which he predicts advancements in genealogical research as well as shares his own research challenges — a peripatetic circus performer?

Learn more about our fabulous fall speaker at his website and read more about the resource goldmines you’ll hear about on September 30.
