Podcasting with fellow bloggers

This week, DearMYRTLE invited Jasia of Creative Gene and myself to a podcast interview in which we discuss the terms genealogist and family historian.

Jasia called our segment the "Jasia and Schelly Show" in her blog post.

DearMYRTLE’s Family History Hour 21 Aug 2007 genealogy podcast is available at her website. Click here and scroll down to "download." You can listen via computer or download to an mp3 device or via iTunes.

If you're not sure how to listen to or download the podcast, click here for detailed instructions.

The one-hour podcast begins with Geoff Rasmussen of LegacyFamilyTree.com, followed at 26:30 by Pierre Cloutier of ProgenySoftware.com discussing GeneLines - our segment is at 37.22.

Geoff mentions that the new version of Legacy now sends reminders of family events such as anniversaries and birthdays. (Note: Where's the software to address, stamp and mail the card envelope?)

Pierre provides interesting information about graphically demonstrating time lines in family history, the overlap of generations, as well as related historical events.


  1. I just listened to us a second time and was even more impressed with the podcast. You were really good Schelly. Have you thought about creating regular podcasts on your blog?

  2. Hi, Jasia,

    Thank you for your kind words.

    I was delighted to be part of our adventure, and it was the first podcast in which I had participated.

    Podcasts are definitely something to consider for the future.
