"Writing Genealogical Articles" on Blogtalk Radio

Jane E. Wilcox and I talked about all kinds of writing that genealogists can (and should!) do last night on the Forget-Me-Not radio hour, which overflowed the standard 60 minutes, lasting 1:16. As she says, "Your ancestors want their stories to be told." We had fun and I hope listeners will too! (The first page of my two-part article on William Berry in the New England Historical and Genealogical Register annual American Ancestors Journal even has a cameo role.)

If your download begins with Peggy Lee singing "Fever," you do have the right audio file. Jane's point is simply that if there weren't any of what Peggy is singing about, there wouldn't be any ancestors . . . or descendants for that matter.

Thanks, Harold. I'm putting the episode on my mp3 player. I'm looking forward to hearing what you have to say on the topic because I've written a few pieces about some people in my tree. Now, I need to source everything in my stories. I just find it easier to keep my train of thought if I'm not constantly stopping to source every detail.
