Host Scott Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and AmericanAncestors.org. David talks about the beginning of the celebration of the Mayflower400. Hear what is happening. Then, DNA has brought another World War II soldier home. Find out the background of this long lost soldier. Next, it’s a “super centenarian” who is inspiring his great grandson, a junior high schooler, to learn about his family. Ancestry has announced another new feature is on the way. Catch what it is. (You’re going to like it!) Then, it’s another cold case solved by genetic genealogy. Find out what the suspect allegedly did. David then shines his “Blogger Spotlight” on another outstanding genealogical blogger.
Segment two begins with Fisher sharing a remarkable newspaper article he found concerning a relative in 1892. You’ll be surprised what this relative was sentenced to jail for! Fisher then lets you in on his RootsTech visit with Nick Barratt, host of Britain’s version of “Who Do You Think You Are?” Hear how Nick got started and some of the highlights of his long tenure on the show.
Fisher then talks via Skype with another Brit, genie John Archer, who took a tip he learned from Extreme Genes and turned it into an incredible family history discovery that friends and family cannot believe.
Then, it’s Fisher’s first edition of “Ask Us Anything.” Using experts from across the family history spectrum, this is where many of your questions can be answered. First up: Maureen Taylor, the Photo Detective!
That’s all this week on Extreme Genes, America’s Family History Show!
