Join Nancy J. Reid and Lisa D. Smith, the mother-daughter travel team and publishers of Big Blend Magazines, for Big Blend Radio’s Way Back When History show with Glynn Burrows, family history expert and owner of Norfolk Tours in England.

On this episode, Glynn talks about Captain George Vancouver’s historic ties between King’s Lynn in Norfolk, England and the West Coast of North America. A British officer of the Royal Navy, Captain Vancouver is best known for his 1791–95 expedition, which explored and charted North America's northwestern Pacific Coast regions, including the coasts of contemporary Alaska, British Columbia, Washington, and Oregon. He also explored the Hawaiian Islands and the southwest coast of Australia. See Glynn's article on Captain Vancouver on NationalParkTraveling.com

Featured music on this episode is “Seafaring” from The Madison’s album, ‘Greener’.
