New Pod Cast on preserving family history

Below is a new podcast that I did which discusses the potential of the loss of family history. It is a brief segment of a thirty minute lecture I gave to a Civil War reenactment group in Jacksonville, Onslow County, North Carolina on 14 August 2006.

More segments will follow in the near future on various other historical related topics.
