Host Scott Fisher opens the show with Lisa Louise Cooke, a podcast pioneer and host of the Genealogy Gems Podcast. (David Allen Lambert returns next week.) Family Histoire News begins with a discussion about a lawsuit over slave photos taken by Harvard in 1850. Might the dispute have further ramifications? Then Lisa Louise sees a warning to all of us in what recently happened with former internet king MySpace.com. Hear the story and why it should get us thinking. Then, why should be looking to YouTube for genealogy? Lisa Louise explains. Lisa Louise wraps up the segment with an update on what’s happening at Genealogy Gems.
Next, Fisher visits with archaeologist Julie Schablitsky. Julie has created a whole new line of research involving DNA through the study of clay tobacco pipes. Common from the 1600s through the 1800s, these pipes have become DNA kits just waiting to be processed. Hear Julie explain the significance.
Fisher then visits multiple Grammy Winner and Mirror Ball Trophy champion, Derek Hough, of Dancing With The Stars. Derek recently performed at RootsTech and shares some of his family background and the impact it has on his life.
As Season 5 continues on BYUtv’s Relative Race, Fisher visits with Maria from Team Red. Maria’s recent experience left many viewers in tears (including “manly” Fisher). Hear about how she is feeling about her time on the show.
Tom Perry from TransferDuplication.com, our Preservation Authority, then talks about preservation in terms of the recent “bomb cyclone.” There are ways to reclaim your photos and documents, even if they have been damaged in a natural disaster.
That’s all this week on Extreme Genes, America’s Family History Show!
