Fisher’s family history news coverage begins with a story about a
new science, targeted for police work, where DNA can be used to
create a “predicted” face of the suspect! Could there be
applications for “genies” everywhere? Also, Yale has
discovered that the man they thought was the first African-American
to graduate from Yale wasn’t. How was the real “first”
found? Genies everywhere will appreciate the story.
Cemeteries are going GREEN! (Aren’t they already?)
We’ll tell you just what that means. And… Abe Lincoln’s
cryptic letter of 1860 has been “decoded.” Find out how

Guest Gary Boyd Roberts, a colorful and
renowned family history researcher and writer makes his first
appearance on the show, talking about “Gateway Ancestors,”
ancestors most of us have that have proven lines to royalty.
Gary says there’s more than just “snob appeal” to have royal

few generations. You won’t want to miss it!
