S06 E02: Historians v. Genealogists: What is the Difference?

As researchers, Brian and Donya have learned so much about their families and their histories. They have also discovered information about the history of America that they were never taught in their K-12 education. Research allows genealogists to not only know about our families – but also helps us to understand how history impacted their lives.

So what is the difference between a genealogist and a historian?

Join us as we talk with Historian and Genealogist Andi Cumbo-Floyd about this question. Andi Cumbo-Floyd is a writer, historian, and mom who lives in Virginia’s Southwest Mountains. She has been honored with the opportunity to research several enslaved communities in the area and to get to know the descendants of those incredible, perseverant individuals.
