Fisher opens the
show with the story of a man who the government refuses to allow to
pay his taxes. Why? It has everything to do with a
record family historians are more than a little familiar with.
Listen to the first segment to hear what it is. Fisher
then reviews a list recently published by MyHeritage.com about
surnames that have or are going extinct! Is one of your
family names on the list?
Stan Lindaas of
HeritageConsulting.com then joins the show with a remarkable
illustration of how knowledge of an ancestor's occupation can
change your entire perception of what his or her life was like.
It will take your breath away. Stan then goes through a
remarkable list of now-extinct occupations. His runs Fisher
through the wringer seeing what he knows of these things.
What do you know? Give it a listen! And by the
way, this is the website he refers to: http://rmhh.co.uk/occup/
visits with North Carolina's Connie Fowler. Connie recently
played detective to track down a remarkable family Bible. The
discovery has since led to her development of an vibrant family
organization, complete with committees for family history, cemetery
restoration, reunions, and who knows what else. Connie's got
something for all of us to learn from... check it out!
Then Tom Perry
from TMCPlace.com, our Preservation Authority, talks about recorded
music performances that are now in the public domain for our free
use. When putting together a wedding or anniversary video,
this is great stuff to know. That's this week on Extreme
Genes, America's Family History Show.
