If you enjoyed
the recent Perseid Meteor Shower, you would have really enjoyed
what happened in 1833... likely the most spectacular meteor shower
ever! Linda Emlee, of Ray County, Missouri tells us all about
it this week on Extreme Genes!
Fisher and David
Allen Lambert from the New England Historic Genealogical Society
open the show talking about a volunteer effort to restore a 19th
century African-American cemetery. David also tells us about
ancient English records that are now being made available on line,
including wills from the 15th century through the 19th century.
David's Tech Tips includes an incredibly doable idea for
involving your kids in family history. It's unlike anything
you've ever heard of before! David also has another free
database for you from NEHGS!
shares one of his favorite interviews from the first 100 Extreme
Genes episodes. It's a visit with the founder of
Find-A-Grave, Jim Tipton. Hear about how this iconic site
practically invented itself.
Linda Emlee of
Ray County, Missouri visits with Fisher about a remarkable night
back in November of 1833, often referred to as "The Night the Stars
Fell!" Viewed by many, if not most, as a sign from God that
the world was coming to an end, Linda shares some great accounts of
an evening many of our ancestors would have experienced.
Tom Perry then
talks scanner/copiers in answering a listener email. There's
a lot to know about what you might need for your family history
That's all this
week on Extreme Genes, America's Family History Show!
