African Roots Podcast released a new episode on November 25, 2011. Host Angela Walton-Raji hopes that all of you had a great Thanksgiving holiday. She is spending time with someone who is a “genea-mentor” to her, Dr. Agnes Kane Callum.

She talks about StoryCorps, and says it is a good place to find inspiration.

The National Archives has an episode that was released on November 29, 2011. This episode is called “Making Geographical Sense of the Census”.

Create Your Life Story has an episode that was released on November 28, 2011. This episode is number 63, and it is called “Help with Your Life Story”.

This episode talks about the many reasons why you might need someone to help you record your life story, (or your family history). You might need help transcribing the audio from an interview with a relative, or help with technology once an interview has been recorded. You may need an editor to improve the audio you recorded. You could need help from someone who knows more about publishing than you do.
