Drew shares his interview with Amy Johnson Crow, where they discuss the International Society of Family History Writers and Editors, as well as Amy's fascinating new website devoted to Deaf Americans, deafbiographies.com. George discusses congregational histories plus the U.S. Soldiers Home in Washington, DC (www.defenselink.mil/specials/heroes/history1.html and www.archives.gov/research/guide-fed-records/groups/231.html). Meanwhile, Drew enjoys a magazine from his hometown in upstate South Carolina. George and Drew announce upcoming conferences in Provo, Utah; Lansing, Michigan; Morrow, Georgia; and Tampa, Florida.
Drew reads from podcast listener mail with tips about software for saving and organizing webpages (www.netsnippets.com) and keeping a folder to organize pending requests for information. And Drew points out the idea of using Google Earth to view cemeteries from satellite photos.
