It's 2016 and we decided to do a few new things with the Gena and Jean Genealogy Journey. Aside from the great presentations, tours, and cruises we decided to add something that can be used by everyone...a podcast.
In this first podcast, Gena and Jean provide some introductions and talk about what to expect in future podcasts.
Welcome to the Gena and Jean Genealogy Journey's Podcast
