The weekly history show with a genealogy twist!
Anne Lister, a diarist, shot to fame when she became the subject of the brilliant BBC Drama Gentleman Jack. But who was the real Anne Lister? What can her diaries, which famously recorded her intimate relationships with women, tell us? What else did she record and why are her diaries so important?
Historian Sarah Murden takes us back in time to explore our Georgian ancestors. What was life like for our working ancestors? Why was there such a big divide between poor and rich? How long did they live and why was everyone so obsessed with getting married? Sarah answers all this and more!
Historian Julia Laite joins me to explore the lives of our late 19th Century and early 20th Century working class female ancestors. Julia explains what life was like as a domestic servant. We delve into the aspirations and exploitations of those female ancestors.
About the show
Hi, I’m Natalie and I started #TwiceRemoved because I love history and I think everyone should get a chance to enjoy all the subject has to offer. Without requiring prior knowledge. Without the jargon or the fear of asking a ‘stupid question’. So, I sat down (over Zoom) with a host of historical experts from all different disciplines, to quiz them about their area of expertise. Of course, as a family historian each episode has at least a few genealogy questions too! So, come listen in, learning something new and enjoy the fun.
New episodes are published fortnightly on Tuesdays
