Thanks for listening to Extreme Genes Family History Radio!

Dec 30, 2019

Host Scott Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and The guys begin “Family Histoire News” with the tale of a family fruitcake that has outlasted multiple generations! Then, there’s a problem with DNA and it has to do with a blood donation a man received years ago. And now that DNA is showing up in this man’s DNA test results!  Then, it’s back to the attic for another remarkable family find. This time, evidence of a bootlegger operation dating back to Prohibition.  Next, it’s skeletons under a house in Connecticut. Hear the history these remains speak to from the 18th century. Krispy Kreme has learned something about the past of their founders that has shocked them into action. Hear the story and who they are now helping as a result.

Next, Fisher visits with Debra Renard from Legacy Tree Genealogists. Debra is an DNA specialist and goes through the significance of finding DNA matches who share your X chromosome. Why might this be helpful in your research? Debra explains.

Then, Fisher chats with Janisue Rigel and Davena Liepman, founders of a brand spanking new lineage society. It was thought up over a lunch in the spring and already has over 900 members nationwide! Why? Because it celebrates ancestors (and descent from them) who were American farmers. Find out what the National Society, Descendants of American Farmers is about and how you can become a part of it.

In Ask Us Anything, Fisher and David field questions about databases of silent film actors and actresses and how you can go about determining the real relationship of a DNA match to you. (Sometimes your shared DNA can mean multiple relationships.)

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