Welcome to Research at the National Archives and Beyond! This show will provide individuals interested in genealogy and history an opportunity to listen, learn and take action. You can join me every Thursday at 9 pm Eastern, 8 pm Central, 7pm Mountain and 6 pm Pacific where I will have a wonderful line up of experts who will share resources, stories and answer your burning genealogy questions. All of my guests share a deep passion and knowledge of genealogy and history. My goal is to reach individuals who are thinking about tracing their family roots; beginners who have already started and others who believe that continuous learning is the key to finding answers. "Remember, your ancestors left footprints".

Upcoming Broadcasts

Join Antoinette Harrell for a discussion on Modern Day Plantations. Most people tour plantations to learn about life in early times. Antoinette Harrell has conducted research on peonage and involuntary servitude for the past twelve years and has visited several plantations throughout the Mississippi Delta where people have lived for generations without leaving. In addition, she has interviewed several people who still live on those plantations. What is life like on these plantations today? Why haven't they left the plantations? Where are these plantations located?
