Almost every American has colonial ancestors, and a surprising amount of biographical material is available for those intrepid pioneers. With the 400 year anniversary of the settlement of Jamestown upon us, what better way to celebrate, then to learn about all of our colonial settlers. Our guest will be Martha McCartney, an historian-archealogist-genealogist whose new book profiles 5,500 settlers. Learn about the types of sources she used, so you can find similar information about your own early ancestors.
So, be sure to tune in to the VoiceAmerica Channel on Thursday, 12 April at 1 PM Pacific Time (4 PM Eastern).
