Podcasts are an interesting way to learn more about sources, methodology, and what’s new in the field. The longest running podcast in genealogy is run by the Genealogy Guys, Drew Smith and George Morgan. Drew and George are longtime genealogists and both currently serve on the board of the Federation of Genealogical Societies. I have had the pleasure of knowing them for many years, and find their podcasts to be friendly, and full of valuable discussions and news.


They are always interesting and informative. Recent podcasts have included new of a new live radio program from the Federation of Genealogical Societies, a review of the new genealogy-specific search engine, and an interview with Audrey Collins, Family History Specialist at The National Archives of England and the United Kingdom.


George and Drew were in Boston for an NEHGS education program the weekend of the Society’s annual meeting. That Saturday they recorded a podcast before a live audience, answering questions and talking to people in the audience, including myself and D. Joshua Taylor. You can listen to that podcast, and previous podcasts, at
