Fisher opens the show talking about the huge response to last week's program about DNA triangulation used to assist listener Shelley Smith identify her birth father, after more traditional means, including DNA, helped her identify her birth mother.  Fisher provides an update on what has since happened to Shelley, who has contacted both a half-sister (from the birth mother's side) and a half-brother (from the birth father's side.)  Interestingly, another listener has come along to talk about using the same technique to identify ancestors born in the late 1700s.  Jeanne Nicholson talks about her experience later in the show.  In Family Histoire News, Flooding in Oklahoma has reveal the body of a 40-year-old man.  Fisher will tell you what makes him so unusual.  Fisher then reveals that yet another British monarch may be hidden beneath yet another parking lot!  Who is it, and what is the likelihood we'll have another Richard III on our hands? Fisher will tell you about it.

Bill Harten, creator of Puzzilla then joins Fisher.  Puzzilla is a remarkable free tool that can help you identify descendants of your ancestors.  It's almost like flying over a forest to see where all the campgrounds are!  Where and how can you use this amazing tool?  Find out in Segment Two.
Jeanne Nicholson of Tennessee is new to Extreme Genes, and checks in to talk about how she used DNA triangulation to identify the parents of an ancestor that she has been searching for for years.  Yes, triangulation isn't just for tying in to the living!
Then Tom Perry, the Preservation Authority from, answers a listener question about why her videos and pictures are suddenly coming out "blue!" 
That's all this week on Extreme Genes, America's Family History Show!
