Host Scott Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogy Society. David opens Family Histoire News with the story of a World War II veteran in his 90s who has won the lottery in Ohio. Then, Fisher spins the “Wheel of Wherever,” which leads to several stories from the UK, including the passing of a 93-year-old World War II vet, and a very strange twist involving his family. Also, hear the announcement of the sale offering of UK’s smallest castle. Listen to the show to hear all the specs and how much they’re asking. Also, did an early Brit forget where he parked his Iron Age chariot? One has been found, along with a horse.
David then sticks around to discuss Fisher’s discovery on his recent European trip that, in Germany, graves are not permanent… they’re essentially rentals! Hear the terms by which most are buried and what happens when the “lease” comes to an end! And, as David will tell you, Germany is not the only place this happens.
Then, Fisher visits with Anna Swayne of Ancestry.com about their new Genetic Communities. What’s the benefit? How does it work? Anna will explain.
Then, Tom Perry, the Preservation Authority from TMCPlace.com talks the importance of saving digitized files in the proper size. How big? He’ll tell you where to find a reference chart that will be invaluable. Tom then talks about capturing images from video.
That’s all this week on Extreme Genes, America’s Family History Show.
