Episode 3 – The Family History Center

A couple of months back I had the pleasure of interviewing the former, and current directors of the Nashua, NH Family History Center.  It took some time for us to connect and on the day of taping here in the studio – we had a power outage.

Well, not wanting to be held back by this Brick Wall – we grabbed a location kit and drove across town to the Family History Center itself and had a chat about the resources that they have to offer, research tips, and stories to help inspire you.

The Family History Center in Nashua is located at:
110 Concord Street
Nashua NH 03064

Editing Away on Episode 3

Just a quick follow up tonight.  A while back I had the pleasure of interviewing four wonderful people involved with Nashua’s Family History Center.  We had scheduled to do this in the studio and with about 5 minutes prior to them arriving, we lost power throughout the area due to an accident.  Not letting that get us down, we quickly packed a location kit and drove across town to the Family History Center itself to shoot what I am sure, is a much stronger piece than had we done it at the station.  Everything for a reason.

Well life got in the way but tonight I was able to make significant headway on the project and soon I will be happy to announce that this episode will be ready.

In the meantime, be sure to check out the Nashua Family History Center on their Facebook page [Link] or their page on the Family Search Wiki [Link]

Discovering Your Past – A long overdue update

It has been some time since my last post but it has not been for a lack of trying.  The long and short of it boils down to my busy work schedule during the holiday season in the shipping industry followed by the need to catch up at my second job with the television station once it is all over.

What is great however is that now I can continue on this genealogical journey and bring more episodes to air.

Coming soon (and in no particular order,) Sue and I will be talking about our adventures in Southern Maine searching for one of her ancestors graves and how Maps, a bit of ‘Geocaching’, talking with the locals, and a wee spot of luck all helped in our hunt.

We will have a chat with the director of Nashua’s LDS Family History Center and find out how valuable this resource is in today’s digital age.  We will also take a tour of the center and perhaps take a peek into some Hungarian records.

The American Canadian Genealogical Society in Manchester, NH will join us to discuss their resources, the Drouin collection, and talk about their most recent publication.

Lastly, in the works is an exciting interview with a Woman who has been tracing her ancestors into Nova Scotia and has discovered a special connection they share with a song of the sea.

So keep an eye out for all of the exciting things in the near future on Discovering Your Past!
