Nick Barratt - author, broadcaster, historian and genealogist - is best known for his work on the "Who Do You Think You Are?" television series in the United Kingdom. He is seen frequently on television and is a popular speaker at genealogy conferences. Now he is providing video programming on the Internet.
The first two episodes of the Show are now available free of charge at www.familyhistoryshow.net where you will see Nick discuss - with Laura Berry, editor at Your Family History Magazine - the latest happenings in the UK genealogy community, including record releases, helpful genealogy courses, new online resources and more.
Episode 1 provides an introduction to the new program, a list of Top Ten Tips, a story about Royal Relations-So You Think You Are Related?, an interview of Millvina Dean (the last living survivor of the Titanic), and an interview with Dan Cruickshank, an historian who has a famously-recognized historic interest of buildings and lifestyles from past periods.
Episode 2 of The Family History Show is about searching civil registration documents. It shows the latest case study, tours Stowe House and highlights a rare, antique find.
The web site also hosts Nick Barratt’s blog, where he is happy to share his thoughts on the industry and how government policy and social change is altering the face of genealogy.
The Family History Show is available worldwide on the Internet at http://www.familyhistoryshow.net/.
