Celebrating 25 Years!
 
Aha! Seminars, Inc., is proud to commemorate twenty-four years of training and consulting services. Founded in 1996, we have provided continuing education to scores of libraries and library consortia across the United States. We've also presented hundreds of genealogy seminars and webinars across the U.S., Canada, England, and on genealogical cruises in the Caribbean and the Pacific. 
 
We also produce the award-winning The Genealogy Guys Podcast. It is the longest-running genealogical podcast. We published the first episode on 5 September 2005 and have since published more than 365 episodes. They have been downloaded more than 2,805,000 times by listeners around the world. We launched a new companion podcast in 2016 called Genealogy Connection which concentrates on interviews by Drew Smith with notable members of the genealogy community including speakers, authors, researchers, librarians, software developers, genetic genealogists, and others. Its episodes alternate with those of The Genealogy Guys Podcast and we have published more than 60 episodes in that format.
 
In 2019 we partnered with Blaine T. Bettinger and Cyndi Ingle to present regularly scheduled segments in The Genealogy Guys Podcast. Blaine discusses genetic genealogy research (DNA) with Drew and Cyndi (of Cyndi's List fame) presents a segment called "Cyndi Says".
 
The Genealogy Guys Blog debuted in May 2018. Its intent is to provide news and information with our fans in between our the audio podcasts. It uses written and graphical format, as well as multimedia, to share content consisting of:
  • urgent breaking news in the international genealogical community;
  • press releases and announcements that cannot wait;
  • research tips and methodologies to help you improve your knowledge and success;
  • guest postings from our great sponsors and and other influential people in the field of genealogy; 
  • and some of our personal experience examples to illustrate our own investigative challenges, methodological approaches, and tools and resources that help solve research problems.
We will also share detail and document images received from our listeners that may elicidate points and show document samples. (Written permissions are required and copyright laws apply.)  
 
Both George and Drew are published authors and our books can be found under the News and Announcements and Order Our Books tabs of this site.
 
On 6 May 2019, The Guys teamed with Blaine T. Bettinger and Cyndi Ingle to launch a new Facebook group called The Genealogy SquadYou can join the new group at  https://www.facebook.com/groups/genealogysquad/ and enjoy the best advice and referrals to resources to extend your genealogical research.
