Live Stream, Podcast & More

Live streams, podcasts, and more are now part of Piedmont Trails. Each of these formats contain a priceless amount of data, resources, and information pertaining to genealogy and history. Subjects range from early migration roads to specific family histories detailing the individuals and their lives. Sources range from books, maps, state and colony records, various church records and diaries collected and filed during the past forty years. A brief list of these would include journals, land deeds, oral history, videos, recorded verbal conversations, copies of census records, copies of tax records, letters, newspaper articles, estate records, obituaries, and much more. It is not possible to list every collected source, but of the most valuable sources in the collection are the various church records dating from the 17th-century to the mid-19th-century in the states of North Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee, South Carolina, Illinois, Kentucky, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Indiana. Church histories contain a vast amount of genealogy and local history.

Several options are available with each of these formats, and joining the journey is as easy as saving the date on your calendar. The live streams are promoted on the Piedmont Trails YouTube channel the last Sunday of each month beginning @ 7:30 pm eastern time. The podcast features several platforms such as Anchor, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Breaker, Overcasts, Pocket Casts, Spotify, and RadioPublic. The show airs once a month, and details about each episode can be found on our monthly events section. We have recently added a new group page on Genealogy Wise. This social media platform focuses only on family history and is the perfect place to gather with friends and family members. The Piedmont Trails Group is free to join, and we discuss our projects, current research and genealogy tips.

Choose one, two or all three. It’s your choice. The Piedmont Trails YouTube channel features Live from The Attic with live Q&A during each session. The Piedmont Trails Podcast just recently celebrated the third anniversary of broadcasting episodes of genealogy and history. Resources are given for each show to entice further study. The Piedmont Trails Group is brand new but has already covered a great amount of data with links, photos and much more.
