Most genealogists will tell you that every now and then, seemingly unexplainable things happen. Call it what you will. A miracle? psychic phenomena, or serendipity? Seemingly unexplainable things happen. In Kindred Voices, Geoff lays out a case to show that genealogists often receive research help from their long-deceased ancestors themselves. Many fascinating examples, taken from his own life experiences, are given. Did you ever wonder why those of the Mormon faith do genealogy? Geoff gives the best explanation for it that I've ever read.Megan Smolenyak put it this way, "If you didn't believe it before now, Geoff Rasmussen will convince you that our ancestors want to be found as much as we want to find them. Whether you're new to genealogy or struggling with a brick wall in your research, Kindred Voices will inspire you in your quest to reach out to those who came before us. C'mon, they're waiting for you!"

Genealogists hear dead people...
[…pause for dramatic effect...]
The voices of our ancestors awake when our search for them begins. Most often we feel their voices – in our minds and in our hearts – as research ideas, promptings, and intuitions on where to find them. Yet sometimes, as our hearts turn toward theirs, their heaven-sent communications can be heard with our earthly ears. These voices – those of our ancestors - are the evidence of their hearts having turned towards ours.
The serendipitous encounters with genealogical voices that Geoff Rasmussen tells in Kindred Voices are true stories. Readers will be stirred by the reality of our ancestors’ interventions in our search for them. You will be inspired to either begin your search or to receive the hope you need to continue your quest. Our ancestors speak to us; are we listening?
