Interview with Coffee with Cleo in two parts

I love it when I get the chance to speak about my passion. It is always my hope something I say sparks an interest in someone to start researching their family history.

I had the opportunity to do an interview with Cleophus (Cleo) Franklin, Jr. the author of "Coffee with Cleo." Full disclosure we previously worked together at John Deere Financial several years ago. In Cleo's book, he shares stories he has learned in his business career and from his father. We share the knowledge of each of our families and separately are passing that information down to the next generation.

Read what Cleo says about myself and women entrepreneurs.

Have a listen to the two-part interview Cleo did with me talking about genealogy, how I got started, and more.
