Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and  They talk about the news of the discovery of the very spot in Salem, Massachusetts where the accused witches were executed in the 17th Century.  Hear where you can see it!  David then explains how the 5,300 year old Ice Man continues to make headlines.  He apparently left a prehistoric GPS of his movements. Hear how scientists can now tell where he traveled in his life. And, the guys then talk about how the last survivor of the San Francisco Earthquake of 1906 has passed.  Catch his survival story.

Next, Fisher talks with guest Brent Ashworth, a Provo, Utah man who collects items related to his family history.  He offers great advice on how you might do the same.  He also shares how he, as a Mayflower descendant, was excited to obtain one of the two Bibles carried by Gov. William Bradford to the New World on the Mayflower! (Are you kidding me?!)

Then, Fisher visits with Ken Krogue, founder of, who will be a keynote speaker during the Innovator Summit on the first day of the Roots Tech Family History Conference in Salt Lake City, Utah on February 3.  Ken offers sound advice on helping seniors get comfortable with technology to advance your family history efforts.

In the final segments, Tom Perry from, the Preservation Authority, returns with thoughts on how to get the most out of the Innovator Summit, whether you're there in person or following the events on line.

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