Host Scott Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and  The guys begin with a warning about a new free genealogical site that may make you very uncomfortable. But there is something you can do about it. They'll tell you what that is.  Next there's news about the upcoming 2020 census. It won't be done as it's been done in years past. Found out about the changes and why they're being done.  Then, David shares the bizarre story of a place in Mexico that stores well preserved 19th century bodies. He'll tell you why they're there.  Then it's good news for people with ties to Cuba. Records long thought to have been lost are being rediscovered now that US-Cuban relations have changed. David is hoping to find a mention of his sea captain ancestor who sailed there.  The guys talk about the science behind why adults are constantly confusing the names of their own children.
Fisher next (starts at 10:39) visits with Paul Woodbury, the DNA guru of Paul explains a new program that will tell you which grandparent gave you certain traits and which traits your grandchildren received from you. And best of all? it's all FREE!
Dan Debenham then (starts at 24:16) drops by to talk about the upcoming season of Relative Race of BYU-TV. The national hit begins its second season soon, with casting for the third season coming up as well.

Tom Perry then talks more about the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas that recently wrapped up. What are the new toys you could use as you pursue discovering, preserving, and sharing your family's history? Tom has some answers.
