Fisher opens this week's show with David Allen Lambert, Chief
Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and
AmericanAncestors.org. David congratulates Fisher on a
special award he recently received. Listen to the podcast to
hear what it's about. David also talks about his ancestral
discovery linking Moby Dick author Herman Melville with historian
Nathaniel Philbrick, as well as Fisher's wife and David
himself! It all ties into the newly released movie, "In the
Heart of the Sea." David notes that a new Revolutionary
museum will be opening in 2017. Listen to find out
where! David also notes the discontinuation of Family Tree
Maker by Ancestry.com, and clues you in on another free user
database from NEHGS.
David then returns for segment two to talk to Fisher about how genealogy hooked him as a seven-year-old. Both then provide insight on how you can get your children and grandchildren on fire about family history, and history in general. Better listen up, because some of these tips have to do with the holidays!
Then, self-proclaimed "Jersey Girl," Sue Wynne, talks about an astounding find she made concerning her fourth great grandmother, also from New Jersey. She'll reveal the sources and how it came to be that her ancestor was viewed upon her death in 1845, and then again four years later! Only in family history!
Tom Perry, the Preservation Authority from TMCPlace.com returns to talk about audio problems after a video digital transfer. It's a common problem, and Tom has several ideas on things you can do, and things that only professionals can do to save your overall video. Tom also talks about a "wowy" new 3D printer you'll want to hear about!
That's all this week on Extreme Genes, America's Family History Show!
