Doug McCabe talks with Eric Burke

On this edition of Conversations from Studio B, host Doug McCabe talks with Honors Tutorial College (HTC) junior Eric Burke about techniques used in tracing genealogy.

Burke, a veteran, focuses his HTC studies on the Civil War and often utilizes various genealogical methods to conduct his research.

McCabe and Burke discuss where to start a genealogical search, tools to utilize and documents to keep an eye out for.

Burke was previously featured on Conversations from Studio B to discuss his work in transcribing hundreds of Civil War-era letters of the Brown Family of Albany, Ohio.
