I’ve just returned from a short vacation to the sand and sun of southern Florida. While I was away, I got an email from Bernice Bennett, the host of a genealogy oriented Internet Radio Show, Research at the National Archives & Beyond. Ms. Bennett asked me if I would be a guest on her show on October 25, 2012 to discuss my research and the interesting topic of Virgin Islands genealogy. Of course, I can’t refuse such an opportunity.
The show is a live broadcast web-feed show, with listeners commenting and asking questions through on-line chat. It airs every Thursday at 8pm Central Time. The shows are available as podcast on iTunes for those, like me, who listen to the show later. The show covers virtually all aspects of genealogy and family history. I listen regularly.
Ms. Bennett asked me to send her an outline, or at least talking points, for what I want to discuss. That’s where you can help. What topics are interesting to you? Was there a post you would like me to talk more about? A topic I’ve not addressed you’ve been interested in? Records I should discuss? Island history? Let me know and I’ll see if I can talk about it on the air. What should we tell the rest of the community about our heritage? All ideas and suggestions are welcome.
Leave me a comment or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know the kind of things you want to hear about, or things you think the other listeners would be interested in. After I firm up the outline, I’ll post links to the show and information on how to get the podcast. I hope you’ll tune in.
It’s not often the Virgin Islands get mentioned in mainstream genealogy circles, much less get a whole broadcast episode devoted to them. Let’s make the most of it.
