Treasures Livestreaminar: D-Day and Our 20th Century Vets

YouTube Live

Part 2 of 2 about how to learn about our military heritage. I'll share some stories and tips on researching our ancestors who gave all in service of their country during the 20th century on June 6th, the anniversary of D-Day. I'll play a song or two from the new project, share a little advice from what I learned, and take a few questions too.

"The Gifts in Our Genes" Workshop

YouTube Live

Drawing on his extensive experience researching his own family through records and DNA testing, Andrew weaves music about - and by! - his ancestors into an interactive, enlightening and highly entertaining 1-hour program. He melds his unique gifts as a musician and storyteller together with his scientific background to take a unique approach to finding, recording and sharing one's vital family "ancestories". While he shares useful basic techniques and tips about using DNA that anyone interested in family research will find valuable, he also imparts a deeper appreciation for the unique miracle of each person and their genetic blueprint with warmth and humor.
