Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and AmericanAncestors.org. In “Family Histoire News” Fisher and David talk about the recent story of a couple in their 70s that just welcomed a new child into the family! How and where? You’ll have to listen to the show. David then talks about a 111 year old woman with more grandchildren than years on this earth. Fisher and David will give you the math. A famous English ship has been found… right under our noses… scuttled in New England! Listen to find out whose and what ship it was. MyHeritage has come up with a new tribal history program. David fills you in on the details of this important initiative. Plus, catch David’s Tech Tip, and the NEHGS free database of the week.
In segment two, Fisher visits with Forever.com founder and CEO Glen Meakem about what he views as the important process of prioritizing what is really important to pass down and how you’re going to do it. It’s an important conversation with many points you’re going to want to consider and act on.
Fisher next visits with Joshua Arlin Collins, a Texas man and Extreme Genie in every sense of the term. Joshua has been seeking his ancestors for some time and in the process learned that he may be qualified to fill a vacant Earldom! Could he one day be the star of a reality version of Downton Abbey? Hear what Joshua found in his research and how he plans to claim his place among the aristocracy of England!
Then, Preservation Authority Tom Perry returns to talk about preserving paper. What paper should be kept and how, and what paper should be scanned and tossed? Tom will give you some great thoughts on everyone’s great challenge… how to collect without collecting too much!
It’s all this week on Extreme Genes, America’s Family History Show!
