Host Scott Fisher opens the show with the Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and, David Allen Lambert. The guys begin with a story from the Ukraine, where an 87-year-old man is being recognized as having, perhaps, the largest number of descendants for a living person in the world! Wait til you hear the figure! Then, a family in China is concerned. They’ve been in the taxidermy business for five generations, and they’re looking for who will take them into the sixth generation. David then shares the tale of Roland Gaines, a 97-year-old World War II veteran whose lost dog tags have been found. In Italy! Hear how the finders got them back to Roland. Next, it’s word that an 18th century “Irish Giant” (over seven feet tall!) may soon be taken off display and properly laid to rest. David’s Blogger Spotlight this week shines on Donna M. Moughty, host of Donna’s Irish Genealogy resources. As things continually improve for Irish research, Donna can point you in the right direction. Read her blog at

Next Fisher visits with a man who has gained worldwide fame as “The Good Cemeterian.” Andrew Lumish has developed a passion for cleaning up tombstones in the Tampa area, especially military figures, and especially from the Civil War. Hear Andrew’s story and how you can learn to do what he does.

Then, Tom Perry, our Preservation Authority from gives some important advice about microphones. You’ll need to know this if you are planning on interviewing your relatives at the next reunion.

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