Fisher opens the
show with a fascinating story about how World War II bombs still
have the potential to kill people in both Britain and Germany.
Wait until you hear what happened in both countries recently
and the statistics of how often live Allied bombs are found in
Germany every day! He then talks about a New
York realtor who recently had the unusual experience of being
randomly chosen to sell a property and business that had been
started by his great grandmother 110 years ago.
visits with Shelley Smith, who recently worked with Fisher to use a
DNA test along with other information to identify both her birth
mother AND birth father! While both are deceased, she has
also learned of living birth siblings from both sides of her birth
parents' lines. In identifying the birth father, Fisher used
a technique known as "triangulation" to zero in on the family and
the correct individual. Triangulation can also work in
traditional genealogy research to identify ancestors. Under
the right circumstances, it's not that difficult to do. How
did it work in Shelley's case and how can triangulation work for
you? Fisher will explain.
Then Tom Perry
from TMCPlace.com, the Preservation Authority, talks about how to
undo the effects of humidity on old movies, photos, and negatives.
Yes, the is hope even in the worse cases. If you have a

It's all this
week on Extreme Genes, America's Family History Show!
