Is my cousin really my sibling? on Genealogy Publishing Coach—Ep 01
On today’s episode of Genealogy Publishing Coach, I welcome professional author and storyteller, Diana Lesire Brandmeyer, to share about how her grandmother inspired the story, A Bride’s Dilemma in Friendship, Tennessee. We also discuss her questions about Native American ancestry DNA, why she may or may not see it show up in her testing, and how to tell if cousins are really her long, lost half-siblings she hasn’t seen since babyhood. Though it seems unusual, it isn’t that out of the ordinary.
Diana’s big, scary question: “Is my cousin really my sibling?” We also discuss reasons why she may want to wait to get the information for an appropriate time to share or not share it.
Join us on the inaugural episode of Genealogy Publishing Coach, both a podcast and video show. Check the links here if you’re interested in following up on any of the discussion on DNA, writing, publishing, and helpful tools.
A Bride’s Dilemma in Friendship, Tennessee by Diana Lesire Brandmeyer is the first in a 3-book series called Frontier Legacy Brides. Be sure to listen or watch Genealogy Publishing Coach – episode 01 to find out how Diana’s grandmother inspired this story with… green beans? Yes, green beans!
