As much as we genealogists love to look to the past, we have to swivel our necks frequently to keep an eye toward the future. That’s why I like the new Genealogy Gems Premium Podcast Episode 119!
In this episode, Lisa talks to us about why capturing the past in genealogy blogging is actually an investment in the future. Fire up your enthusiasm for beginning or continuing a genealogy blog with her 5 Reasons You Should Have a Genealogy Blog. Then check out her quick and practical how-to advice–and a link to a fantastic FREE in-depth resource for genealogy blogging.
Then a special guest joins Lisa to talk about the future of genealogy. I always enjoy chatting with Maureen Taylor, best known as “The Photo Detective.” Of course, Maureen has a lot to say about technologies for archiving pictures. Check out the links she recommends in this episode!
You’ll also hear about our next featured title for the Genealogy Gems Book Club: international bestseller Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline. You won’t want to miss this riveting read. It actually fits the podcast theme, too: the narrative goes back and forth between the life of a young orphan train raider in the early 1900s and the unfolding life of a teenager in foster care today.
