Host Scott Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical  Society. The guys begin with a brief look at how the new EU privacy law, “GDPR,” is affecting the genealogy world. Next, most genealogists have found connections to royalty, which has increased interest in the recent royal wedding. As such, the guys delve into the sacrifices Meghan Markle is having to make to become a member of the Royal Family. (It suddenly doesn’t sound so glamorous!)  Then a shipwreck off the coast of Colombia is being called “The Holy Grail” of shipwrecks and may contain some $17 billion in treasure. Hear how it was found and how it got there. David then fills us in on the latest that he has learned about his distant cousin, Douglas Lambert, who died in World War II. David’s blogger spotlight this week shines on Jana Iverson Last. Go to janasgenealogyand  Jana talks about the various cultures in her background and how they weave together.

Next, Fisher visits with “Your Genetic Genealogist” CeCe Moore about how her DNA research recently led police to an arrest in a three-decade-old cold case. It’s a first for CeCe who felt she had to consider the ethics and legality of such an action, and the feelings of the genealogy community. In the end, though, as she explains, it came down to one important factor. Hear what she had to say about it.

In a second segment, Fisher and CeCe discuss the controversy surrounding the use of in the genealogy world. She addresses some of the concerns discussed with Paul Woodbury last week. It’s a fascinating discussion you need to hear.
