Host Scott Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and Fisher begins by talking about a new, really old, heirloom he is about to receive. Find out what it is and where it’s coming from. Then, David shares the story about a woman who discovered a hidden panel in a bedroom in her house. What was found behind it turned into quite a family history adventure. Then, it’s been 75 years since V-E Day, celebrating the defeat of Nazi Germany. The guys discuss the impact World War II continues to have on the world. David then talks about a discovery he recently made. When ancestors had headaches they undertook, er, an unusual method to deal with it. Hear what David learned!

Next, genetic genealogist CeCe Moore returns to the show to visit with Fisher for two segments. She will tell you all about her new ABC-TV series, The Genetic Detective. The show debuts on Tuesday, May 26th. (At the time this interview was recorded it was set for May 19th. The date for the debut is now May 26th.)  CeCe explains the format and how the show came about and why she chose to do it. In the second segment, CeCe talks about the matches now available to her through GEDMatch and FamilyTreeDNA. And she has a request for you as well! Hear what it is.

Fisher then visits with Dr. Eurie Hong, the head of Ancestry DNA. Dr. Hong’s team is now undergoing a Covid-19 study to help scientists around the world to battle the pandemic. She’ll explain how you can be part of this important work.

Then, David returns for Ask Us Anything. In this episode, a teenager has a question about both Fisher’s and David’s ancestors. Hear what they have to say.

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