Thanks for listening to Extreme Genes Family History Radio!

Jul 7, 2015

Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of NEHGS and American Ancestors.  Fisher talks about how liquor consumption increased during and after the Revolution to absurd amounts in the 1830s.  Exactly how much per person?  Fisher will tell you.  Then David talks about various heritage organizations you may be eligible for because of your ancestor's contributions to the cause of liberty.  There are more than you think!  David also shares another terrific Technical Tip of the Week.
Then, Fisher visits with Sarah Hermans, Regent for Daughters of the American Revolution in Rhinebeck, New York.  Sarah explains how many ways your ancestor can qualify for "patriot" status, aside from carrying a rifle.  Fisher was surprised to learn that one of the ancestors he previous hadn't considered could make his female family members eligible for DAR, and him eligible for SAR.  (His fifth patriot.)  Who have you not considered?
Rhonda McClure, Genealogist for the New England Historic Genealogical Society then reviews her recent research trip to Italy, with great tips and dos and don'ts for your next trip preparation.  What were her biggest mistakes?  Rhonda opens up about that as well!  Her advice can apply to planning for research trips to many countries.
Tom Perry from, the Preservation Authority, then answers a listener question about Taiyo Yuden disks and which kind you need... CD, DVD, how many X?  It can get confusing, but Tom is there to make sure you know what you're doing with your next disk purchase.
