Denys Allen started the podcast in the fall of 2019. The motivation was a desire to fill in the gaps on Pennsylvania history and available records for genealogists. Much of Denys’s own ancestral research was stuck due to lack of knowledge of available records and historical events. By sharing what she learns the hope is everyone can have the knowledge and skills to find their ancestors and complete their family history.
