Fisher opens the
show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist with the New
England Historic Genealogical Society and American Ancestors.
David has an assignment for everyone concerning one story in
their history. Listen to hear what it is. He also
shares a fascinating tip about pages of information that likely
exist for your immigrant ancestor, held by the government beginning
in 1940. What is this record and how can you get it?
David explains. He also shares his Tech Tip of the Week
and another free database from NEHGS and American Ancestors.
Then, Dr. Kasia
Bryc of 23andMe.com visits with Fisher about DNA genealogy.
It can reveal so much information now... but where is it
going in the future? Dr. Bryc will give you some insight.
In the second segment with Dr. Bryc, she answers some of the
most common questions about the use of DNA in your research.
23andMe will now be regularly supplying experts to answer
your questions in this growing and exciting field! If you
have a question... or a DNA story of discovery... email
Fisher@ExtremeGenes.com, and you could wind up on the show!
Then, Tom Perry
from TMCPlace.com, the Preservation Authority, talks about
salvaging warbly audio and mismatched video from a wedding, found
on two different types of tape. Tom talks about matching up
colors from both tapes, and digitally salvaging and blending scenes
from each, and how best to use the surviving audio. He also
has a great tip on filling in the gaps of both audio and video to
make the story better than it was when the tapes were new! A
lot of what Tom shares may well be of benefit to you as you deal
with preserving great memories on old deteriorating
It's all this
