Storytellers Nancy McDonald and Laurence Overmire, actors and educators who explore genealogy, joined us to discuss how you can find gold in your family tree.
Laurence’s multi-faceted career includes roles as a poet, actor, director, educator, and genealogist. He is the author of 11 books, and Scottish historian Ted Cowan calls him “a true sennachie, genealogist as well as bard.” Laurence is joined by his lifelong soulmate, Nancy McDonald of Juggling Feathers, also a poet, actor, director, and educator. Together they earn the title, “Two most interesting people in the world.” Today they talked about how you can explore your family history. Our conversation will be guided by Laurence’s book, “Digging for Ancestral Gold.” #Portland
