Keeping up with my Tejana roots all the way in Maryland

“I started getting into genealogy about 2 years ago. I don’t remember how I stumbled across the “We Are Cousins” blog, but I am glad I stumbled upon it. Moises has started to accompany his blog by adding podcasts. His introductory music theme had me hooked from the beginning. He lays out his podcast what he is going to discuss and sticks to it. I only listen to two podcasts (We Are Cousins and another podcast) and take turns listening to the podcasts when I get ready for work in the morning. Make sure to subscribe to his blog newsletter and become a member of the We Are Cousins Facebook group too!” – Tejana Librarian
