Welcome to the first podcast in this series. In this episode, I go back to basics to ease us all in gently. To get the ball rolling, I talk about the things that I really wish I knew before I embarked on my family history journey.
If, like I did, you are thinking ‘how hard can it be?’, or you’ve seen how easy it looks on genealogy shows on TV, this is the episode for you. Not that I’m trying to put you off, but it’s definitely worth knowing what you’re letting yourself in for before you tie yourself in the knots that I did when I first started out!
Handily, and coincidentally, my list of ‘things that I wish I knew before I started’ forms a nice neat list of ten – so here we have a ‘top ten’ nuggets of wisdom from my few years of experience of getting stuck into the rewarding, but frustrating, world of genealogy.
Recommended drinks to accompany this episode: Earl Grey tea (relaxing, yet historic)
Recommended biscuits to accompany this episode: Jaffa cakes (ten in a box, you get to eat one per item!)
