Join hosts Nancy Reid & Lisa Smith, the mother-daughter travel team and publishers of Big Blend Radio & TV Magazine and Parks & Travel Magazine, for Big Blend Radio’s 3rd Friday Family History Show, streaming live from historic Florence, Colorado. Special guest co-host is genealogist Holly T. Hansen, Founder of Family History Expos, who will discuss unusual resources to help research your family history, such as coffin quilts, brands, Fraktur, and more.

Featured guest is historical author Sufia Giza discusses her latest book, "Moundbuilders of Ancient America: A Legacy Reclaimed." As an Amer-Indian and Gullah-Geechee woman, Sufia Giza is descended from Mississippian Moundbuilders through her mom’s McQueen line, tracing from Cofetazque, South Carolina to Talisi, Alabama. In this book she has combined 30+ years of research with the latest DNA Technology in 2017, using tools to trace her ancestor's early Migrations out of Africa and into America. The results pin-point Sufia's Ancient Amer-Indian Ancestry in Mesoamerica, linking her Heritage with the Ancient Ohlone, Serrano, Muskogee and Olmec ethnicities.

Featured music is “Prayer for the Past” by Evren Ozan, and “Kumbaya” by Carmen Lundy
