The Forget-Me-Not Hour: Your Ancestors Want Their Stories to Be Told

Jane hosted The Forget-Me-Not Hour: Your Ancestors Want Their Stories To Be Told podcast on for 6+ years. Begun on 950 AM radio in Poughkeepsie in November 2010, Jane’s show featured interviews with local, regional and national genealogy and history guests, a little music, and lots of genealogy tips. The show went on an indefinite hiatus in June 2017. All episodes are archived.
