For the last two episodes of the Ohio Genealogy Podcast, I was invited in to record them on site and in person. One of the reasons I wanted to do an Ohio focused show was for this reason. It is the industry standard to record interviews over the internet using Skype, which I am happy to do, especially in the other show of which I speak with genealogists throughout the country. However visiting the archives and seeing the historic sites is one of my favorite apsects of researching genealogy in the first place, so it makes sense to make a day trip out of an invitation by a guest. Okay, one of them waslocal and only a fifteen minute drive, but for the other I took the opportunity to hit one of the libraries in the area for some personal research. I didn’t find anything of note, but I had a wonderful conversation with one of the librarians. Episode 2 is a trip to the Center for Holocaust & Humanity Education which houses a large collection of artifacts from the early to mid 20th century.
Episode 3 covers the infirmary turned museum in Bowling Green. That place was huge; every room filled with memorabilia, mostly local to the area. Check out the history behind these collections and the organizations that put in the time to preserve them.
