Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief
Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and
AmericanAncestors.org. The guys talk first a remarkable event at
Arlington National Cemetery, honoring the deceased vets for the
holidays. Then, a more than century-old document has been found in
Germany concerning the grandfather of President-Elect Donald Trump.
And yes, it will be blamed by some for his election. Hear what it
is. Next, catch the story about a Michigan man’s remarkable
discovery… two secret rooms in the house his family had owned for
decades. Naturally the family history finds… for the previous
family… made headlines. Next, it was just an exhibit displaying
World War II bomber “nose art” right? Not for one man from
Milwaukee. Wait til you hear about his incredible discovery. David
then shares his tip of the week.
Next, Fisher visits with Kim Running of LegacyTree.com. Kim
talks about the details of her recent blog on tips you can use to
decipher old handwriting, both in English and foreign languages. If
you’ve ever been baffled by a document in front of you, you’ll want
to hear what Kim has to say.
Then, Justin Crowe of CremationDesigns.com talks about the
inspiration for his company, which takes the cremains of your loved
ones and turns them into everyday items, including coffee mugs and
jewelry. You know you’re curious, right?
Then, Tom Perry from TMCPlace.com, in an encore visit with
Fisher, talks preservation. This week it’s about making your family
heirlooms, records, etc., more interesting and appealing so the
next generation will keep them and keep passing them down.
That’s all this week on Extreme Genes, America’s Family
