Host Scott Fisher opens up the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and AmericanAncestors.org. The guys first pay tribute to affiliate WRKO in Boston that recently raised some $230,000 for veterans on Veterans Day. David then tells of the recent passing of what may be the last Massachusetts vet of one particular major World War II engagement. Hear how old he was and what he was a part of. Next, the guys talk about a man who always thought his birth parents were long deceased in a foreign land, and how his spit showed him he had bad information. An incredible piece of family history has come back to one family some 75 years after it was created in the harshest of circumstances. Fisher has the details. Next, a Japanese ghost town has been located deep in a Canadian forest. The guys explain why it was there. David then talks about the “gift” of Ground Penetrating Radar that is now searching a high school football field. And you won’t believe why!
Fisher next visits with Paul Woodbury, a DNA specialist with Legacy Tree Genealogists. In two segments, Paul amazes as he explains all the steps involved to take a DNA kit “From Spit To Screen!”
Team Green, DeShae and Chris, from BYUtv’s Relative Race then talk about their journey so far on a very emotional Season 6. DeShae believes (and she’s probably right!) that she has had something happen on the show that has never happened before.
Then, it’s another “Ask Us Anything” segment with Fisher and David. They answer an important question about a listener’s recent haul of family history documents.
That’s all this week on Extreme Genes, America’s Family History Show!
