Many of these reviews are older but if anything, this podcast has just gotten better and better. It's a potporri of information with something for anyone interested in the Northeast US. Guest interviews are well managed and reflect both Ms. Pierre-Louis' interest in and knowledge of the topics that she brings to the table. This is one of the GREAT reasons to listen to podcasts!
My Favorite Podcast
I love listening to these interviews. I've listened to many twice. Both Marian and her guests are informative and inspiring!
Find of the Summer!
I was caught up on all previous episodes of what I thought were the only two genealogy podcasts there were. I half heartedly searched in the iTunes store thinking I would have to "settle" for something. When I found Fieldstone Common I first went through the catalog and hand picked only certain episodes. However, Marion's quality interviews of interesting guests have caused me to go back and listen to ALL previous episodes, not just the ones I thought I might like. These podcasts are a great source of entertainment and information! I'm so glad to have discovered this show!
