BioADay2022 - Wiley Franklin Odom

Here's another biography I developed on my quest to achieve one biography per day on my platform of choice, FamilySearch. With each ancestor, I always start with the auto-generated Life Story on Ancestry, copy it and paste it in the LifeStory field on FamilySearch. Then, I augment it with facts from census, vital, and other records, along with a little logical deduction thrown in for good measure. As I did before, I will read you the original from Ancestry and the final product on FamilySearch, complete with a list of sources. I hope that this inspires you to write a few biographies every month. It's the best way to come to understand the lives of our ancestors.

Also, I'm no longer on Spotify. I explain that in the episode.

Last, but absolutely not least, HAPPY BLACK HISTORY MONTH!
