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!
Fisher then 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 efforts!
That's all this week on Extreme Genes, America's Family History Show!
