Guests: Bill Barrett, PhD, Professor, Computer Science, Brigham Young University; Curtis Wigington, Masters’ Student, Brigham Young University In just a few clicks online, Top of Mind producer Tennery Taylor discovered that she’s a third cousin (six times removed, that is) to Abraham Lincoln. She was starting to feel some familial pride about that when she also discovered that she had the same relationship to Benedict Arnold. Win some, lose some. She was using the Relative Finder app, which is made by The Family History Technology Lab here at BYU.  Find fun famiily history apps and games here.
