Tina Sansone

Tina Sansone* I am so excited about the response “A Savory Spotlight” has had since our inception. We have had some awesome and informative shows, and the future guest lineup is very exciting. Every show has our DNA and genealogy features, but we have added the health and music topics to make a great well rounded show. Our current ongoing project is to educate our listeners on the dangers of bullying and we have a contest underway that we hope you will join. On a personal note I am super excited to announce I have started writing for my local paper, “Germantown News” a column entitled, “Genealogy in Germantown”. I plan on sharing and hopefully inspiring those that live in my area to get started doing their family history. If you have a family history story, consider submitting it to your local newspaper or genealogical society for them to publish. As I have been researching, I wanted to send a word of caution regarding genealogical databases that have submitted online trees or transcriptions, as those found on Ancestry and Findagrave. I use these databases almost on a daily basis, but I have learned to use their information as a guide. Well-meaning people post incorrect information, and we must only post to our trees as fact if there is documentation. I will go so far to say to even be cautious on using information gleaned from a tombstone. The information is only as good as the informant, or even the person doing the work on the tombstone. Errors are made, and we must be careful. It is extremely important to document everything using several different types or records to ensure accuracy. We can cut back on these issues if we upload data that we know is correct and support with facts and documentation.

*(From Tennessee. She is the genealogy editor for BellaOnline.com and is a board member for the Association of Professional Genealogist, and serves as President for their virtual Second Life – APG Chapter. She is the SE Editor for the International Society of Family History Writers & Editors and is the coordinator for their “Excellence in Writing” competition. She is a past board member for Tennessee Genealogical Society and now assists with their social media. Tina is a member of the Council for the Advancement of Forensic Genealogy and a GeneaBlogger. One of her proudest moments was working on “Who Do You Think You Are? – Vanessa Williams” show. Tina enjoys helping others break down their brick walls and is excited about teaming up with ResearchDNAwriters.com and LATalkRadio.com. She is a wife, mother and grandmother.

DNA SPOTLIGHT

DNA Spotlight – Melvin Collier, a genealogist and friend, recently wrote some great tips on his blog, “Roots Revealed”; it is entitled, 20 Do’s and Don’ts of DNA. The last one he mentions reads, “Read, read, read! Once you have taken the DNA test, please continue to educate yourself about DNA. Many informative articles and blog posts can be read online. This will certainly help to understand how DNA is passed down and how certain matches are related, especially if you share DNA on the X chromosome with a DNA match.” This is so true…so many of us get the DNA testing done and then when the testing arrives, it reads like a foreign language. It is important to know what your results mean by either reading about it, or asking for assistance. Sheri McNeil Savory offers her services to analyze and help in your DNA understanding should you need it. Visit Research DNA Writers for more information.
