Host Scott Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society. The guys first talk about Fisher’s exploration of the backwoods neighborhood he grew up in and how it was in 1867! David then tells Fisher about house that’s being sold for the first time in centuries! Hear when the last time was this American home was for sale. Next, an ancient writing system has been cracked. Hear when it was in use and where. Captain Cook’s alleged ship, resting in the ocean off Rhode Island, is being destroyed. Find out what is happening. “The USA and the Holocaust” by Ken Burns is making noise on PBS. David shares his thoughts on the show. Finally, New York has passed a law requiring art galleries to post a sign revealing a specific origin. David tells you what that origin was.
Next, Fisher visits with longtime friend Dan Debenham, host of BYU-TV's Relative Race. The show is beginning its tenth season. Dan talks about the current season and then explains his heart wrenching diagnosis.
Then, Sons of the American Revolution (S.A.R) Librarian, Cheri Daniels, comes on the show to talk about the research assets available to all (not just S.A.R. members!), including 55,000 volumes of genealogies, family histories, and location histories.
David then rejoins the show for Ask Us Anything.
That’s all this week on Extreme Genes, America’s Family History Show!
