Host Scott Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and David talks about his recent lecture that gave him the opportunity to shoot World War II era guns with World War II vets. Family Histoire News begins with a summary of Olivia Coleman’s recent experience on “Who Do You Think You Are?” in England. Hear what ethnicity makes her now feel a little less “ordinary.” Then, it’s the story of a food truck. But not like the one that visits your office on Wednesdays. This one collects family recipes and gives people the opportunity to cook them up! A woman whose DNA results devastated her with news that her father wasn’t her father has started an on line organization for people in her situation. And it turns out that there are a lot more than she imagined. David then talks about a tale from the Titanic that has not received a lot of attention. You’ll know more about it soon. David then shines his “blogger spotlight” on Kenneth R. Marks. Ken blogs about helpful techniques to make your journey less “bumpy.” Visit his blog at
Next, in two segments, Fisher visits with Dr. David Sloane, an English professor at the University of New Haven in Connecticut. Dr. Sloane is a great grandson of Thomas Edison. He talks about how that relationship has influenced his life, the challenge of living up to the legacy, and challenges to the Edison legacy. In segment two, Dr. Sloane shares some family stories and memories of his mother and great grandmother, Edison’s wife.
Then, Tom Perry, the Preservation Authority from, talks with Fisher about attics in the summertime. If you ever imaged there were monsters in the attic, you were right! Especially when it comes to your family photos, home movies, and videos, and the heat and critters of summer.
That’s all this week on Extreme Genes, America’s Family History Show!
