Host Scott Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert,
Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society
and AmericanAncestors.org. The guys begin with a warning
about a new free genealogical site that may make you very
uncomfortable. But there is something you can do about it. They'll
tell you what that is. Next there's news about the upcoming
2020 census. It won't be done as it's been done in years past.
Found out about the changes and why they're being done. Then,
David shares the bizarre story of a place in Mexico that stores
well preserved 19th century bodies. He'll tell you why they're
there. Then it's good news for people with ties to Cuba.
Records long thought to have been lost are being rediscovered now
that US-Cuban relations have changed. David is hoping to find a
mention of his sea captain ancestor who sailed there. The
guys talk about the science behind why adults are constantly
confusing the names of their own children.
Fisher next (starts at 10:39) visits with Paul
Woodbury, the DNA guru of LegacyTree.com. Paul explains a
new program that will tell you which grandparent gave you certain
traits and which traits your grandchildren received from you. And
best of all? it's all FREE!
Dan Debenham then (starts at
24:16) drops by to talk about the upcoming season
of Relative Race of BYU-TV. The national
hit begins its second season soon, with casting for the third
season coming up as well. (Hint: It's very lucrative to be on this
show!) Dan shares everything you'll need to know to be part of this
television reality show adventure.
Tom Perry then talks more about the Consumer Electronics Show
in Las Vegas that recently wrapped up. What are the new toys you
could use as you pursue discovering, preserving, and sharing your
family's history? Tom has some answers.
That's all this week on Extreme Genes, America's Family
