GeneaBloggers radio - The CSI Show - Forensic Genealogy

At 10pm on Friday evening, instead of watching the Canada Day fireworks on Parliament Hill I tuned in to a fascinating episode of Geneabloggers Radio, hosted by the indefatigable Thomas MacEntee.
Thomas spoke to three people on the topic "The CSI Show - Forensic Genealogy" and threw in news items along the way.
Colleen Fitzpatrick, who has given some of the most memorable genealogy presentations I've heard, discussed the three techniques she relies on most: photo-analysis, database mining and DNA analysis.  http://www.forensicgenealogy.info/
Janis Martin spoke about the Unclaimed Persons project which has had remarkable success over the past three years in tracing relatives of deceased persons where officials had not been able to do so.
Not a scheduled guest, but a welcome caller in was Sharon Sergeant who discussed forensic cases she has worked on.

In recognition of it being Canada Day Thomas gave a shoutout to Elizabeth Lapointe's GenealogyCanada blog.
