Fisher opens the show with the Chief Genealogist of the New
England Historic Genealogical Society and AmericanAncestors.org,
David Allen Lambert. David tells us about a baby recently born in
Mexico that has three genetic parents! Hear why the new procedure
was considered necessary. Speaking of DNA, the boys will fill you
in on a new deal from 23andMe on autosomal tests for genealogy. Who
knew that there would still be new finds to made concerning "Otsi,"
the Ice Man found 25 years ago? Listen to hear what is now known
about this fascinating ancient man. Next, David tells us about a
park ranger at Ellis Island and a recent find that is impacting her
job. Troops from Tennessee may soon be coming home from the
Mexican-American War, which took place some 170 years ago. David
will have some details and an idea on a great way to honor your
military ancestors. Plus, listen up for another free guest user
database from NEHGS!
Fisher next visits with British author Nathan Dylan Goodwin about his latest genealogical crime novel, "The Spyglass File," which is set in Britain during World War II and the present day. As usual, Nathan has done a brilliant job. Nathan then stays on to share with listeners ideas on British databases and sources you might not be familiar with.
Then it's Preservation Time with Tom Perry from TMCPlace.com. Tom answers a listener question about restoring a saucer with a photo on it. He then shares some ideas on displaying photos on other interesting items, including a backsplash!
That's all this week on Extreme Genes, America's Family History Show!
