Fisher and David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and open the show with a question about politics.  Do you know how your ancestors voted?  Fisher learned about how his great grandfather voted in New York City in 1880 in a unique way.  Hear how he figured it out.  David then talks about a medieval ship that has been rescued from the bottom of a river in the Netherlands.  Plus, the 8th century Viking treasure trove found in England last year has been given a new status.  Find out more about both of these incredible discoveries.  David then shares his weekly Tech Tip, and another free NEHGS guest user database.

Fisher then visits with Richard Boston from the Loveland, Colorado area about how he and a third cousin in California discovered one another, and the adventure they are now on together.  They are researching a quilt made by their common great-great grandmother, stitched with 320 names from the Civil War period, some common, some famous.  What are they learning about the mystery of the quilt?  Check out the podcast!

Then, Fisher welcomes Henry Z. Jones back to Extreme Genes, author of the book series “Psychic Roots.”  “Hank” has been working on this series since the ‘90s, and he’ll share three Twilight Zone-type stories from the genealogy trail that will blow your mind!  (Visit

Tom Perry, the Preservation Authority, wraps up the show visiting with Fisher about the various damaged and partially destroyed items he gave advice on at the Roots Tech Conference a few weeks ago.  His thoughts just may revive a few of your treasures that you thought were toast!
