Fisher and David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and, open the show with news about a recently discovered World War II mess kit that has united a family.  Then David shares great new for Midwestern researchers at the Allen County Genealogical Library in Fort Wayne, Indiana.  David and Fisher then talk about finding your ancestors in the diaries of people who were involved in their lives… like ministers and doctors.  Wait til you hear what David found for someone recently in a minister’s diary!  Then David shares another Tech Tip, and this week’s NEHGS free guest user database.

Fisher then welcomes to the show, for the first time, Lisa Louise Cooke, host of the long-running “Genealogy Gems” podcast.  Lisa has written a book on Mobile Genealogy and shares some tips on how to maximize your research experiences while away from home.  You won’t want to miss what Lisa has to say!

Next, meet professional genealogist Carolyn Tolman from  Some time back, Carolyn relocated with her husband to Pennsylvania where they moved into an old house.  Wanting to know more about it, the house’s “genealogy” turned into a whole new adventure!  You’ll want to hear how Carolyn did what she did, and what the result was!

Then, Tom Perry from, our Preservation Authority, joins Fisher for the final segments.  Tom talks about a turn-of-the-last-century photo brought Tom at Roots Tech.  It’s the earliest “selfie” he’s ever seen, and he coveted it!  He’ll explain how it was done, as well as how to salvage a picture with “outlaws” (former in-laws!) in it. 

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