Thanks for listening to Extreme Genes Family History Radio!

Sep 7, 2015

Not many genies are passionate enough to buy their own cemetery, but Roy Schreffler of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania did!  Also, expert Karen Clifford gives us an overview on what it takes to research your southern ancestors.
Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and American Ancestors, who talks about the latest scientific analysis of an ancient 9 foot idol found in Siberia in 1890.  You will not believe how old it is!  Midwesterners will be interested to hear the latest on the upgrade to Indiana's iconic Allen County Genealogy Library.  David also shares his plans to test what we hope to be an awesome new app for photos, and he gives us another free database to check out.
Fisher then visits with Karen Clifford, President of Genealogy Research Associates, who shares her ideas on researching ancestors in the challenging 19th century southern states.  Yes, she says, it can be done!
Roy Schreffler, a passionate genie from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, then joins the show and talks with Fisher about just why he bought an old cemetery.  In serious disrepair.  As a hobby!
And Tom Perry, the Preservation Authority from, answers another listener question about preservation.  Are you using the right kind of microphone to record your grandparent interviews?
That's all this week on Extreme Genes, America's Family History Show!
