Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief
Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and
AmericanAncestors.org, lamenting a recent study showing one in ten
young college grads believe Judge Judy sits on the Supreme Court.
But that's just the beginning! Hear what else they
believe. Then, David talks about how Indian burial mounds in
the midwest may soon be leveled to make room for development!
Hear where this could happen and who's behind it. Plus,
28,000 New England church records from 1641 to the mid-1800s are
soon to be digitized. David shares the details. Plus...
got a criminal relative back there? David tells you one way
you might be able to own his or her mug shot! David also has
another tech tip, and the free database from NEHGS.
Then, Fisher visits with Professor Emerson Baker of Salem State University, one of a committee of seven who recently confirmed the location of the execution site of the victims of the Salem witch trials. Learn the techniques they used to survey the area and how they all settled on one particular spot now found in a lovely residential neighborhood. Also, how will this area now be treated by the town, and how and should visitors get to the site? You won't want to miss this segment.
Stan Lindaas returns to the show next, from HeritageConsulting.com, to talk with Fisher about terms you'll find in old records that don't mean what you might think they mean. Fisher gets quizzed. Listen to how he does.
Tom Perry, the Preservation Authority from TMCPlace.com wraps up the last two segments of the show discussing the recent Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, and what wowy new technology is going to benefit the world of family history. Tom's got the skinny!
That's all this week on Extreme Genes, America's Family History Show!
