Fisher opens this week's show with David Allen Lambert, Chief
Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and
American Ancestors. David shares a great way to get kids
interested in family research... the very fun lineage of Harry
Potter! He'll tell you what that is all about.
FamilySearch releases another great new database. Learn what
it is and if it relates to your research. Then listen to
David's awesome "Tech Tip" concerning Facebook, and NEHGS has
another free database for you to check out.
In the second segment, Fisher visits again with Thomas MacEntee of High-Definition Genealogy in Chicago. Thomas is ramping up for another "Genealogy Do Over." It's an on line opportunity for you to fix mistakes you made when you were just starting out, or to begin your efforts on the right foot. You can participate on line from anywhere. Thomas will tell you what it's all about.
Then, Fisher visits with Crystal Johnson, a woman who stumbled on a record that told her that her husband's grandparents divorced in the 1970s. Only the living grandparents knew nothing of it! Fisher also brings in grandmother Aloha Bennett, who explains how this happened and what they had to do about it. The discovery saved the Bennetts a lot of potential problems. It's a story you don't want to miss!
Then, Tom Perry from TMCPlace.com, the Preservation Authority, handles a listener question about transferring and editing video from cell phones to computers to DVDs. It's tricky stuff, but Tom has some important thoughts for you.
That's all this week on Extreme Genes, America's Family History Show!
