Episode III: Getting Started
Hello, my name is Mike DeBacker, and welcome to another episode of Gathering More Leaves. Please join me on my journey as I reflect on the exploration of my family history for the past 45 years.  After making the trek to the National Archives and the LDS Library in 1985, my family history research effort search pretty much dried up, and I settled into trying to make my documentation readable and understandable by future generations. Being a computer programmer and interested in databases, I tried my hand at a couple of different methods of maintaining the information I had collected. As I went along, it was very much a learning process. For more information, please visit https://gatheringleaves.blog/

Episode II: Allow me to introduce myself
In many books there is usually a one-page section titled “About the Author” that presents some biographical information on the book’s author in the back pages of many books. I thought it best that I provide these details upfront because, in one sense, this is “all about me.” Along with my two brothers, one sister, and our descendants, no one else can claim a complete affinity with all of the family branches presented in my book, Gathering Leaves. Also, it would be a disservice to the listener for me not to reveal who I am and what my connection is to the material presented in this podcast.  For more information, please visit https://gatheringleaves.blog/
