In honor of Johnny Appleseed Day (September 26th), Gena and Jean discuss the importance of apples and apple trees in early America (along with a couple of recipes), his life, the truths and fictions about John Chapman, his genealogy (in the second half), and provide some hints about researching Colonial ancestors. They also discuss some of the problems with online trees, particularly for well-known figures in history. Access the resource materials at http://genaandjean.blogspot.com for 24 September 2017.
