Fisher opens the show with the story of a woman
whose personal research got sidetracked by documents that told her
the sad story of an English housekeeper who was sacked because she
became pregnant. By her husband! Tesse Boase went to
work to find out what happened to the woman after losing her job.
Then, the DNA study of the "closed" population of Iceland is
over, and some interesting discoveries have been made that could
affect our futures, and the futures of our descendants.
Fisher then talks about the great find of a Minnesota woman
who kept running into a piece of metal in her garden. That
piece led to quite an adventure, and ultimate connection with the
people she knew had to have it. What was it and what
happened? Fisher will tell you.
Then, it's a
rare interview with FamilySearch International CEO and President
Dennis Brimhall, in two segments. Dennis is one of the great
leaders in family history research, being instrumental in creating
partnerships with MyHeritage.com, Ancestry, and FindMyPast,
accelerating the pace by which we get digitized family records from
around the world. He will tell you about where we've been,
where we are now, and where we're going in the next coming years.
His answers will make your jaw drop!
Then Tom Perry
from TMCPlace.com returns to talk about what to do with documents
and videos when they're damaged by water or fire. And what
NOT to do!
It's all this
week on Extreme Genes- America's Family History Show.
