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 with a crazy tale Fisher unearthed in his recent research that forced a marriage date to be pushed up! David starts “Family Histoire News” with the story about a man whose DNA led him to discover he was, in fact, an African prince. Catch the details. Then, a story was recently published about the history of grave robbers and Native American grave sites. David gives an overview. Then, no one ever expects a man to crawl out of a tomb, but it happened in South America. Hear the crazy details!
Fisher then visits with Richard Weiss of the non-profit DNAAdoption.org. Richard and Fisher talk about the unique issues facing adoptees as well as those who have unexpected DNA test results. Richard explains how his organization helps these people and how you can support the group.
At RootsTech, Fisher visited with actress Patricia Heaton, best known for her roles in “The Middle” and “Everybody Loves Raymond.” Patricia got the “big reveal” from FamilySearch following her keynote speech at the conference. She talks with Fisher about that family background, as well as the challenges of having more than 100 first cousins!
Next, it’s Team Black from BYUtv’s Relative Race! The incredible first episode has already aired, and the twins Kaley and Kristen talk to Fisher about being part of the show and some of their experiences.
Finally, Tom Perry from TMCPlace.com talks about things you can do to further protect your old magnetic recordings as your attic begins to heat up.
That’s all this week on Extreme Genes, America’s Family History Show!
