Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and AmericanAncestors.org. David and Fisher open the show with news about an acknowledgement that George Washington’s family was indeed biracial. David has the details. Then, David fills us in on when the oldest library in the world reopens. He’ll tell you where it is and just how ridiculously old it is! And, if you have an ancestor who fought for Canada in World War I, David has good news for you! And, of course, he’ll have another tip of the week and NEHGS free guest-user database.
Next, Fisher visits with Christy Fillerup from LegacyTree.com in Salt Lake City, Utah. Christy talks about the “FAN Club Principal,” or “cluster searching.” If you’ve got an ancestor that seemed to drop into some place from out of the sky, the FAN Club Principal might be exactly what you need to break down your brick wall.
Janet Hovorka from FamilyChartmasters.com joins Fisher for the third segment to announce the launch of “Genealogy.coach.” (No “dot com” necessary!) If you’re a Do-It-Yourselfer, here’s an inexpensive way to access coaches from around the world!
Then, Preservation Authority Tom Perry from TMCPlace.com joins Fisher to talk preservation. Remember that photo box Tom talked about that you could build yourself? It’s now an affordable product! He’ll tell you about it, and who’s offering it. Tom also has more information on his coming Scanning Party, as well as a new, high tech family history board game!
That’s all this week on Extreme Genes, America’s Family History Show!
