Nov 2, 2015

This week on Extreme Genes, America's Family History Show, you'll meet John Vitale of Buffalo, New York.  Orphaned at ten, he never imagined what DNA would bring him!  Then, Susan Hale talks about what it's like to learn that patriot spy Nathan Hale is on her family tree, as well as several other notable early Americans.  Hear how it has affected her life.

In segment one, Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and  In "Family Histoire News," David talks about the unlikely reunion of a pair of World War II vets from Utah.  Coincidence?  You decide!  David then talks about French painters who, at the beginning of the last century painted images of what they thought the year 2000 would look like.  (Hint: Some of it wasn't bad at all!)  Then, a few bucks at an antique store scored a man a multi million dollar historic photo.  Who was it of?  You'll have to listen.  Plus David has another Tech Tip of the Week, and another Free Database from NEHGS.

Next, Fisher visits with John Vitale of Buffalo, New York.  John was orphaned at age ten.  Now, decades later, John is no longer alone... or anywhere close to it!  Catch the details of John's journey and meet a special guest John brings to the discussion.

Then (in keeping with this week's New York guest slant), Susan Hale, an artist from near Albany, New York, talks about the impact her ancestors have had on her life and art.  Her family tree includes patriot spy Nathan Hale, and the "Man Without A Country," Edward Everett Hale.  (See her works at

Then Tom Perry, the Preservation Authority at talks about sorting out the "alphabet soup" of technology so you can begin to learn how to preserve and edit materials on your own and save a ton of money.

It's all this week on Extreme Genes, America's Family History Show!
