Fisher and David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and AmericanAncestors.org, open the show with a warning about posting your child’s photos on line. Wait ‘til you hear why! David then shares the story of a woman who has worked at the same job since the Roosevelt Administration. (The FIRST term!) Then, it’s BIG news for Irish researchers. Ireland has released their most important records for free. Find out how to access them. MyHeritage has also announced a large release… over 33,000,000 Finish records going back over 350 years. David will tell you more. Also, there’s a new study that tells us who gives you your intelligence, and the result might surprise you. David then shares his weekly tip, and another NEHGS free guest user database.
Next Fisher visits with Paul Woodbury, DNA analyist with LegacyTree.com of Salt Lake City, Utah, talking about “endogamy.” (Don’t worry, Fisher has never heard of it either.) What does it mean, and why might it play a role in your DNA results? Paul will (attempt to) explain!
Then, listener Dayna Jacobs, a former missionary to Samoa, shares her incredible story of finding the grave of a member of her own family on the island nation! (She had no idea he was there.) And with a post from the other side of the world, she discovered a whole lot more. You'll love the whole story.
In Preservation Time, Fisher and Tom Perry from TMCPlace.com fill your head with ideas on preparing to interview your family’s seniors to create the ultimate family history gift for this holiday season.
That’s all this week on Extreme Genes, America’s Family History Show!
