Radio Show Announcement–October 25, 2012

BTR FlyerWell, it’s official.  I received the October Line-Up for Blog Talk Radio’s Research at the National Archives and Beyond. I will be appearing on the show on Thursday, October 25, 2012 to discuss my Island Research. 

The show is on Internet Radio.  It will be broadcast live and archived for later listening, either from the web or by podcast through iTunes.  Research at the National Archives and Beyond is structured as an interview program, with the host, Bernice Bennett, asking questions and opening lines of discussion.  For those who listen live, there will be a chat facility that allows listeners to ask questions or make comments live.  Bernice usually makes time in the show to read and respond to the listeners’ questions.

If you haven’t listened to this program before, you’re missing out.  Go to and listen to some episodes.  And be sure to mark your calendar for October 25, at 9pm Eastern Time for the entry of the Virgin Islands into the consciousness of mainstream genealogy.  It’s about time.


  1. Oh my gosh this is so coooooool!!!!! Way to go Dave! Make the presentation totally personal, about how you visited there as a kid, how you slowly discovered your distant island ancestors, how you started researching their journeys, and how this journey of discovery affected you. Like "Kon Tiki", but within the halls of NARA. Totally awesome!!!

    Looking forward to listening in, David! Hopefully the slow local internet service will cooperate.
