Oct 21, 2019

Host Scott Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and Fisher notes another family history “score” on eBay, and David begins Family Histoire News with the story of autumn… why American’s call it “fall.” Then, it’s the remarkable tale of a hitchhiker who was carrying an ancient book that no one knew existed. Hear how it wound up back where it belonged and why it is so significant. Then, DNA has solved a news making story that happened during World War II.  DNA has also raised some eyebrows in the case of a boy who disappeared in a Louisiana bayou in 1912.

Next, Fisher visits with Dr. Henry Louis Gates, host of the hit PBS series, Finding Your Roots. Dr. Gates explains the history of the show and how it has evolved. Then in a second segment, Dr. Gates talks about a program he developed to get Jr. High kids into genealogy.

Then, Anitra and Paul from BYUtv’s Relative Race, join the show. “Team Blue” talks about the experience as well as the emotional moments they’ve already felt through Episode 3.

At the back end of the show, David returns for another Ask Us Anything segment.

That’s all this week on Extreme Genes- America’s Family History Show.
