orking for a living is a reality. Genealogy is a hobby. Those are the rules.
Lunchtime is my time, so I use it wisely. I walk (good for mental and physical health) and I listen to genealogy podcasts.
These are some of my favorites:
Fieldstone Common with Marian Pierre-Louis. This podcast/radio show focuses on New England and Northeast history and genealogy. Marian conducts excellent interviews of authors who have written historical or genealogical books concerning the Northeast portion of the U.S. Since I am from the Northeast, this podcast is especially interesting to me, and I find myself buying quite a few of the books she features.
The Genealogy Gems Podcast with Lisa Louise Cooke – Your Family History Show. This podcast is more of a general nature. It is not location specific. Lisa is upbeat and full of genealogical knowledge and clever ideas. She is also technically proficient and gives helpful tips for conducting Internet searches.
The Genealogy Guys Podcast (Drew Smith and George Morgan). This podcast will keep you up to date on genealogy events, searching techniques, new publications and more.
Genealogy podcasts are also great when your eyes are tired and you just want to relax and listen to someone talk about your favorite subject. Give them a try—you’ll be glad you did!
