Thanks for listening to Extreme Genes Family History Radio!

Feb 18, 2019

Host Scott Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and  Family “Histoire” News this week is really one huge story in the family history world… the story about FamilyTreeDNA. The company is said to be “working with” law enforcement. The guys share the story along with founder Bennett Greenspan’s rebuttal to the report. The report is resulting in mixed response by those supportive of the use of public DNA bases to solve criminal cases, and those concerned about privacy.

Fisher then visits with Jenny Hawran of Connecticut for two segments. Jenny describes her DNA surprise results which revealed to her that her late father was not her biological father. She explains how she sought possible explanations for her results other than the one she knew was most likely. She talks about her emotional challenges since the revelation, and gives advice to people who may struggle to know what to say to someone like herself who receives a surprise DNA result.

Then, Tom Perry reveals a great new audio software to help you with your old cassette recordings. Tom says the best outcome begins with a proper digitization. He explains what that means and what you should demand from whomever digitizes your old cassette recordings.

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