Listening While You Research
My hubby found a really interesting link a few weeks ago and I just had to share it. Did you know that you can listen to a radio station from your computer? Simply visit Radio Garden and you'll be live streaming radio stations anywhere in the world.
If you're thinking this has nothing to do with genealogy, think again.
I tried it while doing some research to gain a better sense of the community. I clicked on the locale from the map (any of the green dots) and was soon hearing WVLP-Valparaiso, Indiana. Sure the area has changed since the time when the person I was researching lived there but Valpo remains an agriculture center which it was in the 1920's. Sometimes, the more things change the more they remain the same!
Next time you need a little background noise give it a try.
