The Family History Show Podcast

Hello All:

There is a new podcast on Youtube about genealogy and family history called "Family History Show."
I have just watched the four videos of the first episode and it is really good and informative.  This new
podcast is by none other than Dr. Nick Barratt and "Your Family History" magazine Editor Laura Berry.  The show has really just gotten started and is very new.  I am hoping that it will be a great success.

One of the things that I like about it is that it is a video podcast so you can see and hear what's happening.
In this first episode Dr. Barratt interviews the last surviving Titanic passanger, who had since died in 2009.  There is also letters from viewers regarding royal ancestry, as well as the latest news in genealogy and family history in UK. 

This first podcast is a bit short (about 30 minutes or less), but hopefully once things get rolling there will be more content.  However, at the same time you don't want something that is too long.  I think an hour is a good amount of time without losing the viewer/listener.  Again, I wish this new podcast all the success.  It is great to see something such as this and one that focuses on British genealogy/family history.  But, I am a bit of a fan of anything genealogically on video and podcast.

I can't really say when the next programme will be on, but just keep an eye out.  I am sure
it shouldn't be too long to wait.

Until Next Time . . .
