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. I offer 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 hosts Janice and Cherekana for a conversation with author, Kathy Marshall: Lots of Roots investigation led Kathy Marshall on another thrilling journey into her family's tangled historical past, finding black and white ancestors she'd never known, leading to places she'd never been, and uncovering secrets that did not want to be told. The family only knew that Grandpa Austin Marshall smoked sweet-smelling cigars, sported a white linen suit, jingled coins in his pockets, and was born in Columbus, Georgia. So how did he put his son through medical school on a Pullman porter's salary? Marshall will share some of her research methodologies, which may help you find results too.
