Fisher opens the show with more family history memorabilia discovered on eBay.  The 1887 ribbons of the Veteran Firemen's Association, a group to which his great-grandfather belonged, have arrived, and now he has found DVDs of old movies from the 1940s in which his mother appeared an an extra!  Fisher also answers a listeners question about doing DNA tests on bits of hair left between the pages of a family Bible.  Can it be done?  Fisher has the answer!  In Family Histoire News, Fisher informs us that the 1977 mini-series "Roots" may be making a comeback in a whole new form.  Also, Springfield, Illinois has honored hometown hero Abraham Lincoln with a recreation of his funeral, featuring pallbearers who are descendants of the originals!
Then, Jill Kirby, a native of Southampton, England, shares with us what she has learned about her great uncle, a crewman on the Titanic!  Alfred Albert White survived the disaster, but not by taking the place of a passenger.  Hear his remarkable tale of survival.
