May 24, 2021

Host Scott Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and Fisher begins with a shout out to the project team at WikiTree on the WikiTree Challenge they just completed on Fisher’s tree. He’ll explain. Then, Fisher talks about posting his discovery concerning the roots of a woman given up for adoption from a Utah maternity house in 1907. Hear about the adoptive family’s reaction.  David then tells about an accidental discovery in Egypt as well as a great new database on concerning a certain record set in Australia. Also, David tells of a recent burial of a man killed almost 80 years ago at Pearl Harbor. Then, how does an Italian Instagram influencer get to be a princess? Catch the details!

Fisher then visits with Leora Krygier of Los Angeles. Leora discovered a simple postcard from World War 2 at an antique store. And its content took her on an adventure around the world!

Paul Woodbury of sponsor Legacy Tree Genealogists visits next to talk about the Centimorgan Estimator Tool on DNA Painter. It’s a little advanced, but still fascinating for the average genetic genealogist.

Then Fisher and David team up again for Ask Us Anything.

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