The Worlds First Irish Families History and Genealogy Podcast
Run Time: 2:48

The Irish Families broadcast began in 2006, and was the very first
such weekly podcast ever produced.  Since then we have added
4 more broadcasts, including those enhanced with photos,
live web links, and video.

The First Shows

I began with 6 workshop sessions from 1984 that I recorded
around the time of St. Patricks Day celebrations.  The recordings
had been sitting for several decades, and little did I know they
would be of use in launching the Irish Families show.  These
six shows covered genealogical research at that time.  The explosion
of research on the web today has made things much easier.
The basics of Irish research remain the same however.

Guests, Interviews, Topics

We have since included interviews with DNA experts, Irish from
around the globe, authors, dancers and friends.  It’s all to help
us connect with our Ancestors and our heritage.  We cover coat of
arms, tartans, books, the family name of the week, curious news
and notes, and the website of the month, along with family history
notes throughout.

From All Nations

Our fans come from all over the world, including the U.S.A., Canada,
Australia, Ireland and England. I also get notes from South Africa,
Singapore, the Middle East, and Russia now and then!

Today
On Sept. 1, 2008 we added an enhanced version of this broadcast.
Enhanced means we add photographs and live links to the web
that you can see and use while listening to the show.  To use that
version of our Irish Families podcast, you must have Quicktime
installed on your computer (or similar).  Not to worry, the original
broadcast is still here too !

You can get all of our broadcast on our web page at www.Irishroots.com

You can also see all of our broadcasts on iTunes

Yes, I am always looking for interviews with experts and with
everday Irish.  Drop me a note from my web page anytime.
Feel free to send your Irish related book for review, or to request
an interview as an author or historian of any sort.

Our First Video:
I note the beginnings of the Irish Roots Cafe back in 1978,
and the books and podcasts we have produced to help family
researchers. The Cafe is the internet arm of the Irish
Genealogical Foundation.  I’ve published over 60 books and
100 podcasts since those beginnings.  You can find them
all on my web page of course (www.Irishroots.com).

Record Number of Firsts in Podcasting
We now have a total of 5 podcast feeds, including the first
weekly Irish genealogy podcast; the first weekly enhanced
genealogy podcast; and now the first weekly video podcast
on genealogy in iTunes.  ( That, and a dollar will get me a
cup of coffee of course ! )

on my web page, and on iTunes :

You need to call in and add your 2 cents worth !
This is still a one man operation – and I can use all the input
that you have to offer.  I also love to do interviews with
real people.  So, call or e-mail me if you have a comment or
if you want a book reviewed send in a copy for review.

More videos to come
I have the first three months of videos shot and going up
for the podcast  (I’ve also put some of them up on my
website in advance.).
We’ll get into more detail when we start the second season.
Oh yes, maybe you’ll want to contribute a video to that ?
