Genealogy Guys

Doing some ego surfing earlier tonight, I came across a podcast about genealogy that mentions my other (largely dormant since we bought the house) blog about genealogy. One of the podcast's hosts, Drew Smith, wrote a nice column about my genealogy blog (and how to start your own) for Genealogical Computing magazine a few years ago. He says some very nice things about me and my site in the podcast. The rest of the podcast (the parts that aren't about me) is pretty interesting, too. :-) The stuff about me me me begins about 13:30 into the show.

I haven't been completely inactive with my genealogy in the past couple of years, but most of my genealogy files are still in boxes, and the few things that aren't in boxes are not as organized as they should be. But I've got a couple of interesting stories I haven't told on the site yet, so I should be able to add them, hopefully in the next couple of weeks. And the house is really starting to come together lately, so I'm hopeful that I'll be getting the genealogy files in shape in the coming weeks and can restart my research.

In the meantime, I've added The Genealogy Guys Podcast to my subscription list in iTunes.

A very interesting and professionally executed podcast. Lots of nice things about your site makes it even better.

What do you mean there is no cat?

"You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat."

- Albert Einstein, explaining radio
