Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief
Genealogist for the New England Historic Genealogical Society and
AmericanAncestors.org. The two talk about using the
"Skywalker" family tree as a great teaching moment for
children. Fisher & Lambert then talk about the Christmas
traditions of England's Royal Family. (Just what do
you give the Queen?!) David then discusses the oldest remains
found showing evidence of tattoos. You won't believe how far
back we're talking! Plus, hear the value of those ancient
coins found on British farmland this past October. David will
also have another Tech Tip and the NEHGS free database.
Next up, Fisher visits with renowned genealogical blogger, "The Legal Genealogist," Judy Russell. Judy has some terrific year end observations on dealing with various views of the same documents and how you can avoid misinterpretations. She'll also discuss the genealogical trap best known as an "obituary!"
Fisher's next guest is a Connecticut woman named Marjorie Adams, a descendant of Daniel Lucius "Doc" Adams, a baseball pioneer who played for the New York Knickerbockers in the mid-1800s. Most importantly, Doc was the man who led the way to standardizing rules by which we know the game today. Listen to hear which rules Marjorie's great-grandfather fought to standardize, and why she thinks he should now be part of the Baseball Hall of Fame.
Tom Perry of TMCPlace.com, the Preservation Authority, then talks about the challenges of conversion of digital video files. What do you need to know to save, view, or edit your files? Tom's got the answer... as usual!
It's all this week on Extreme Genes- America's Family History Show!
