Nov 26, 2018

Host Scott Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and The guys kick it off with word about some new World War I souvenirs David was recently gifted. Then, they open Family Histoire News with the story of an article in which English family members write about loved ones who were killed in World War I. Then, it’s another cold case solved by genetic genealogy. Hear the details on this most recent case. Speaking of DNA, how much does heredity have to do with longevity? A new study reveals the reality. David explains. Then, some 73 years after the end of World War II, a pair of Russian sisters, one in the US and the other in Finland have finally found each other. Their story is fit for a movie! David’s Blogger Spotlight shines this week on John Grenham of Ireland. John’s blog,  covers all things Irish. If you have Irish ancestors, he’d be a great one to follow.

Then, Fisher visits with genealogist Jim Beidler of Legacy Tree Genealogists. Jim recently blogged about the challenges of having ancestors with common names, or an ancestor who shares the same name with someone else in the same area. Jim talks about how you can be sure that you’re looking at the records of the right person.

Next, it’s another “ordinary person with an extraordinary find.” It’s Kathy Hudson of Salt Lake City, Utah, who uncovered the fact that her ancestor was New York State’s first hired killer! Kathy explains the man’s story, how she found it, and her family’s reaction.

Tom Perry, the Preservation Authority, returns this week talking about the importance of password protection even on photo preservation sites.  In his second segment, Tom shares some thoughts on storage as your databases grow.

That’s all this week on, America’s Family History Show!
