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 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, and you could wind up on the show!
Then, Tom Perry from, 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 videotape.
It's all this week on Extreme Genes- America's Family History Show!
