Lisa's interview on the Change Nation podcast.

 The show is all about making improvements and changes in your life and I got a chance to share what genealogy has meant in my life and how it can be a positive journey for everyone regardless of their background.  

Jim Mowatt over at the Historyzine podcast invited Lisa to be a part of the show.  Jim has always been a macro history guy, but he has finally caught the genealogy bug and he invited me to come on and give a pitch to his listeners about why researching their own family history can be fascinating and actually dove tail into their love of world history.   Historyzine Episode 14.  

Genealogy Gems was featured in the March 20, 2009 World Vital Records Newsletter.  I recently interviewed Steve Nickle the President and Chief Operating Officer for familylink about their brand new website that will be launched here in the next few months called GenSeek. Genealogy Gems Podcast episode #61.    

In today's episode it's time to shake off Winter and we're going to do some Genealogical Channel Surfing!

GEM: Who Do You Think You Are TV Series Scheduled   Bloggers are reporting that the new Who Do You Think You Are TV series which is coming to America from the UK has won it's spot back on the Spring calendar.   It's great to see this wave of genealogy shows hitting the airwaves, and my hope is that it will bring genealogy to the forefront of the television viewers minds as a fun and challenging endeavor.
