It's a 2015 rewind show for the holiday weekend, with a pair of Fisher's favorite segments from the past year!
Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and AmericanAncestors.org. David talks about a nine foot idol discovered in Siberia in 1890. Only recently was it determined just how old this item really is. Listen to the podcast to find out! David also reveals some fascinating facts about his grandfather, who disappeared on the streets of Boston decades ago. He also shares a terrific "Tech Tip" that will change the way you manage your photographs.
Then, Fisher visits with Fran Jensen who is all over the War of 1812 Project. The Project is well underway, digitizing the pension records of the veterans of that war. Fran and some associates have been reviewing them and has pulled out some gems, found in the records, that she'll share in this segment.
Linda Emlee from Richmond, Missouri then talks about a night few people have ever heard of. It's referred to as "The Night the Stars Fell." It took place in 1833, and many of our ancestors were affected. Wait til you hear the details.
Then, Tom Perry, the Preservation Authority, talks equipment for Do It Yourselfers concerning digitizing and editing. It's always great advice you won't want to miss!
That's all this week on Extreme Genes, America's Family History Show!
