Host Scott Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and AmericanAncestors.org. David first talks about his significant finds in the newly released 1921 England and Wales Census. He needed to use a little trick to find his ancestor, but he did! He’ll explain what this trick is and how you might use it. Then, the guys talk about the complicated story of the removal of a statue of a Confederate leader with his own remains beneath it. What til you hear exactly where this man’s final resting ground is! Then, it’s an odd story about a man’s DNA test that shows he has no past! How can this be? You’ll find out! Next, it’s the season for suing over DNA test results, and one organization in Utah has double trouble.
Fisher then visits with Gary Clark, author of the newly released Grand Army of the Republic and Union Veteran Research. Gary talks about the founding of the organization, what their aims were, and what records they left.
Next, Fisher catches up with Crista Cowan over at sponsor Ancestry.com. Crista talks new newspaper databases, genie education opportunities in the New Year and more!
Then, David returns for Ask Us Anything, as the guys tackle a pair of listener questions.
That’s all this week on Extreme Genes, America’s Family History Show!
