New Show to Feature Tips on New England Research


MILLIS, M.A. (January 21, 2013) – Professional genealogist and house historian, Marian Pierre-Louis has developed a new genealogy show in audio (podcast) format called On-Site Research New England. Shows will be broadcast bi-weekly through the On-site Research New England website (http://www.ResearchNewEngland.com) and will made available through iTunes.

On-site Research New England is a podcast created to help all people do historical research in New England. Researchers might be genealogists, house historians, curators, collectors searching for the provenance of antiques, photo historians, authors and screen writers doing background research, freelance writers and many others.

Each podcast will contain an interview recorded on location at a New England archive, library, repository or society. The staff will provide overviews and tips for researching at their facility. To conduct successful on-site research is to “Know before you go!”

The first episode, now available online, features genealogist Rhonda McClure speaking about the Microtext Department at the New England Historic Genealogical Society. The second episode will feature the historical and genealogical resources of the Boston Public Library.

Tips will also be provided for researchers who can’t get on-site themselves by providing a list of staff or consulting researchers who can be their on-site eyes and ears.
