Genealogy & History Podcasts: A Growing List

If you want to learn more about our favorite topics, GENEALOGY & HISTORY, you simply MUST download the free iTunes from and subscribe to some of the podcasts available at this time. You don't need an iPod to listen, just your computer, with the speakers turned on.

Once you have iTunes on your computer (for MAC or Windows) you merely need to subscribe to the podcast's feed by opening iTunes and:
-- clicking ADVANCED
-- then copy/paste the following mRSS code for the desired podcast (from the listing below)
-- clicking the OK button

To insert in your podcast software such as iTunes
The mRSS codes for podcast feeds are as follows:
-- DearMYRTLE's Family History Hour (new podcast every Tuesday night)

-- Genealogy Guys Podcast (new podcast every Sunday night)

-- History According to Bob

-- HistoryPodcast

-- Nuestra Familia Unida(new podcast periodically)

-- Port of Entry

-- Sparkletack

-- Talking History

YOU ONLY HAVE TO ENTER THE CODE ONCE. From then on, when you open iTunes, click the update button to automatically see what new podcasts have been added recently by any of these three podcast groups! Its easy, and you may listen to the podcasts as many times as you wish 24/7.

I sure hope more folks get into producing these genealogy and history .mp3 audio files. What a wonderful learning tool! If you'd like to learn more about the producers of these podcasts see
