I had the pleasure of interviewing a longtime genealogy buddy, Melvin Collier for our second episode of Destination: Pedigree Podcasts. Part one of the interview covers his career as an archivist, how he got started doing genealogy research, and how he was able to find the last slaveholder of his maternal great grandfather. Stay tuned for the second part of the interview.
