Host Scott Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and AmericanAncestors.org. David begins with an interesting find he just made concerning the property his family has lived on for generations. It came from a census substitute from 1871. He’ll explain. Fisher then talks about a recently acquired century old photo of his uncle and a boyhood friend, and the crazy story that goes along with it! Then, how did birth certificates come to be? David will explain. A 4,000 year old board game has been unearthed… sadly, without directions. David has the particulars.
Maureen Taylor, the Photo Detective, hops on with Fisher to talk about how to help your photos survive those 1970s era “sticky” photo albums. Fisher has already suffered a loss to one of these monstrosities. Catch Maureen’s tips. She’ll also share a discovery she recently made concerning family photos and an early 20th century scam. Also, hear about a great contest that Maureen and several other female heavyweights in genealogy are offering. Enter at YourDNA Guide.com/valentine.https://www.yourdnaguide.com/valentine
Paul Woodbury of sponsor Legacy Tree Genealogists visits next to talk about the Centimorgan Estimator Tool on DNA Painter. It’s a little advanced, but still fascinating for the average genetic genealogist.
David then returns for more of your questions on Ask Us Anything.
That’s all this week on Extreme Genes, America’s Family History Show!
