Host Scott Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and The guys cover a lot of ground this week on Family Histoire News.  Up first… a man who recently bought a photo of Queen Consort Camilla’s great great grandmother and gifted it to her. He has since received a letter back! Hear what she had to say. Then, a massive collection of letters from Chicago in the 19th century is heading to eBay. David explains. Next, a box full of photos of a family murdered during the Holocaust has been returned to surviving descendants. Catch how it happened. Then, AI is now about to translate handwritten letters. Written in Japanese! Dave has particulars. A rookie metal detectorist has uncovered a gem that will likely change his life. Hear about the genuine treasure he has dug up in England. Finally, New England Quaker records…. thousands of them… are being digitized. Find out who’s doing it and when you may be able to see them.

Next, Fisher interviews Katie Chrichton from sponsor Legacy Tree Genealogists. Katie talks about the often underused Mortality Schedules. What are they? What can they tell you? Where can you find them? Katie will share all of that, along with some great stories.

Fisher then chats with Dustin Axe of the New England Historic Genealogical Society. Dustin is a Youth Genealogy Curriculum Coordinator and, through NEHGS, is making their course for kids available for FREE to schools, organizations, and home schooling parents everywhere.

David then returns for Ask Us Anything, answering your questions.

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