This week on Extreme Genes... more gems from newly released War of 1812 pension applications, AND talk with a woman who just learned she descends from a Cortez crew member and Jamestown!
Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and American Ancestors.  David has a story about a couple and their 60 years of wedding cake sharing... with a twist!  Also, Big Ben, now 156 years old, is having trouble keeping accurate time.  Hear what's happening to correct it!  Plus, David has your tech tip and info on where he will be in September to talk genealogy with you in person!
Fisher then visits with Fran Jensen, who, along with some colleagues, are reading nearly every new War of 1812 pension record as it comes out on Fold3.  You'll be amazed at the gems they have found, and you'll benefit from Fran's insight on what to expect when you dig in to this awesome National Archives collection.
Danielle Torres from NEHGS talks about her recent experience of learning about her ancestry... with ancestors on both sides arriving in the America's BEFORE the Mayflower!  Wait... what?!  Yes!  You'll enjoy hearing about Dani's journey of discovery.
Then Tom Perry returns talking about preservation.  One aspect of it you might not have thought about is the right way to ship your fragile, delicate, and special heirlooms.  Have a pencil and paper... or your smartphone... ready!
It's all this week on Extreme Genes, America's Family History Show!
