Then, a wallet has been found that went missing 75 years ago. Hear the unique story of this time capsule keepsake. Next, some special records are being released… by Russia! Those who have Soviet-era family members will want to know about this. David then shares word that Ireland is adding a first time feature to their upcoming 2021 census that has never been done before. Catch what it is. Also, the guys have word that a new study shows that Europeans aren’t necessarily Europeans. Hear what has recently been learned.
Then, over two segments, Fisher visits with Paul Woodbury, DNA Specialist with Legacy Tree Genealogists. Paul talks about his techniques for using DNA matches to open brick walls. He also explains when a match isn’t really a match and why.
In Ask Us Anything this week, Fisher talks with Ron Fox, whom he calls the “finder of all finders.” Ron talks about how he uses old records to identify special family items and then finds out where they are today with hopes of obtaining them.
