The Ohio Genealogy Podcast brings you information from around the state relating to family history research. It is an interview format where guest experts provide insight to their expertise in a niche or occupation. The theme song for the show is a computer generated rendition of Beautiful Ohio, the official song of the State of Ohio, composed by Robert King, who used the pen name Mary Earl. The song is in the public domain.
The show host, Jeff Keifling, began his experience as a radio show host on WAIF 88.3 FM in Cincinnati in 2000 with a mid-afternoon time slot taking phone-in calls about the emerging technology of the internet on his show Virtual Mentality. Since then he has learned podcasting hands-on from the most experienced talents in the industry. Jeff holds a Certificate in Genealogical Research from Boston University, and recently attended the Forensic Genealogy Institute in San Antonio, Texas, and is currently enrolled in the upcoming Advanced Genetic Genealogy course from the Genealogical Institute of Pittsburgh (GRIP). He is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists, the National Genealogical Society, and several state, local, and regional societies. Jeff spends much of his time travelling to conferences like Rootstech, Podfest, Podcast Movement, the Professional Management Conference put on by APG, the National conference put on by NGS. He is on the volunteer staff of the Hamilton County Genealogical Society as a writer for the quarterly publication, The Tracer, and a part of the Webinar Content Creation Committee.
