Host Scott Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and David begins Family Histoire News with new information on the pirate ship Whydah, discovered some years ago in the waters of Massachusetts. Could this story tie you to this ship? Find out. Then, it’s another attic archive discovery that we can all only dream of. Hear what was found and how. Here’s a strange one. Was Stonehenge moved? One researcher says yes! And you won’t believe from where it may have come! The oldest-ever-found brewery has been dug up in Egypt. Hear some of the details. And finally, an indigenous fort in Alaska has been found. Find out about its history.

Next, Carolyn Tolman of Legacy Tree Genealogists joins Fisher to talk about towns known as “Gretna Greens.” Hear the history of the name, what it means, and how knowing about such places near where your ancestors lived might help your research.

Brandon Beckstead of FamilySearch is next up on the show. Brandon fills us in on this year’s edition of RootsTech, called “RootsTech Connect,” an all-virtual version of the world’s largest genealogical conference. And there are some fabulous features!

Then, Crista Cowan of visits with Fisher in two segments discussing Ancestry’s offerings at RootsTech Connect as well as new releases now available at Ancestry.

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