Fisher opens the
show explaining the complications of having been born on Halloween.
He then gives poll results on whether or not you or a family
member have ever had a deceased family member pay a visit. It
may surprise you! In Family Histoire News... a family history
researcher in Ireland has become somewhat obsessed with
photographing graves in one particular county. You won't
believe how many he has posted. Anderson Cooper of CNN
recently did a lengthy video piece on his family history. But
not so much the Vanderbilt side as you would suspect. It was
his father's. It's a great piece that any geni can
appreciate. Check it out at ExtremeGenes.com.
talks to first guest Craig McMillan of Lindquist Mortuaries in
Utah. Craig gives a history of the industry, talks about
embalming... how long does the preservation really last... and what
records you might expect to find at your local mortuary. It's
dead on (pun intended!) for Halloween!
Sigrid Olsen from Salem, Oregon talks about how she uses Pinterest
to remember her late mother, who died when Sigrid was a young
woman. It's another great way to go for many people looking
for a way to share their memories.
Tom Perry, the
Preservation Authority returns to talk about how to repair your
damaged disks... CDs, DVDs, etc. Yes, sometimes they are
salvageable! Tom will explain. He also talks about how
you can repair damaged videotapes at your home as well.
That's this week
on Extreme Genes... America's Family History Show!
