This week on Extreme Genes, America's Family History Show,
Fisher opens the program with David Allen Lambert, Chief
Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and
AmericanAncestors.org. Fisher found a mug shot of a third
cousin in San Quentin from 1928 and David reveals his own
grandfather's life outside the lines. What did these guys
do? They'll tell you. Then, in keeping with the salute to our
veterans of the past week, David reveals the identity of America's
oldest living soldier. You won't believe how old he is!
David then talks about how to preserve your veterans' stories with
the National Archives' "Project Vets." As part of "Family Histoire"
news, David talks about the latest DNA test results from the
remains of Czar Nicholas and his family from 1917. Was it
really them, or did they survive? David also shares an
exciting boon to New England researchers now available through a
Harvard web site, along with this week's Tech Tip, and free NEHGS
Fisher then visits with Janet Hovorka from FamilyChartMasters.com. Janet is a national speaker and shares some great insight in how to manage your data across multiple platforms. There's no "one button" solution, but she has some great ideas for reducing duplicated efforts.
Then Illinois resident Debra Bruns talks about her genealogical journey, sharing stories of her Carver family down through the years. Yes... there's another grandpa gone bad in there! What can you learn from Debra's research?
Finally, Tom Perry of TMCPlace.com, the Preservation Authority shares his professional tips for creating better videos as you and your clan make family history. A few simple suggestions will change the way you look through a viewer forever.
That's all this week on Extreme Genes, America's Family History Show!
