“The Descendants” and Family History

Last week I had the privilege of promoting of the DVD/Blu-Ray release of “The Descendants” starring George Clooney. It is a movie that has a thread of family history that connects the ancestors of the past with the future descendants of the King family. There is another story that brings it all together. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie.

My promotional tour began with an interview by Matthew Wright of the National Post. On Monday morning it was Sun News Network with Alex Mihailovich. On Wednesday I was at CHCH television in Hamilton with Bob Cowan and on Friday it was Rogers TV Daytime Peel series with Brigitte Truong and Jason Marshall.

The process was fun and it was great to see how many people were interested in their family history.

An Interview with Lisa Alzo

Lisa Alzo was my last interview at the FGS conference in Springfield Illinois. Many people will know Lisa from her articles in genealogy magazines such as Family Chronicle. She has a very interesting family history and her family could be considered recent immigrants to the United States since they arrived in the early 1900s.

I asked Lisa ten questions relating to her family history.
