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 by talking about the participation of dead people in the recent Eagles Superbowl victory parade. Hear what that was all about! Then, “Cheddarman,” an ancient Brit, has had a DNA test which reveals something previously unknown about the early English. The guys then discuss the 2020 Census questions that are now emerging. Some delve into Caucasian ethnicity. Plus adoptees in New Jersey can finally obtain their original birth certificates. Hear how that new law is changing lives. David then spotlights blogger Melissa Barker, our friend “The Archive Lady.” Read her latest at agenealogistinthearchives.blogspot.com .
Next, Fisher visits with LegacyTree.com’s Carolyn Tolman. Carolyn shares a recent success story of an African-American client. She explains the breakthrough to pre-1870 days and some of the great new tools that are aiding African-American research.
Then, Fisher talks with author Loren Rhoads. She discusses research into her book “199 Cemeteries To See Before You Die.” What genie doesn’t want to know about this?!
Then, Tom Perry, the Preservation Authority, takes on several great listener questions.
That’s all this week on Extreme Genes, America’s Family History Show!
