George and Drew discuss how to find out about our ancestors' occupations. [Note: The correct URL for the USGenWeb page giving explanations of old occupation names is http://www.usgenweb.org/research/occupations.shtml]
Drew shares an interview with Maureen Taylor (the Photo Detective) and David Lambert (of the New England Historic Genealogical Society) and their project involving photographs of individuals associated with the American Revolutionary War.

Other topics include the results of the NARA access petition drive, the availability of FGS 2006 conference recordings at http://stores.lulu.com/fgs2006. The Genealogy Guys also recommend a visit to fellow genealogist Steve Danko's blog (www.stephendanko.com).
