Tracing Your Roots

The BBC continue their excellent coverage of Genealogy and Family History with a new series of Tracing Your Roots on Radio 4 giving advice and guidance on genealogy research.

The show is presented by Sally Magnusson and Nick Barratt who "uncover personal perspectives on social history and give listeners the tools to become family history detectives."

In the first of four episodes "What's in a name?" the show investigates how family history can hit a brick wall when a name changes unexpectedly and explores stories where that change has an intriguing background.

The programme is also available through BBC iPlayer or you can download the podcast from iTunes.
