Then, Ancestry has bought up a company overseas with huge numbers of British military records. A new society has been created to recognize African ancestors who were present in British Colonial America. David will share more about the new group and how you might join it. A lot of people help salvage ancient records, but David has the story of an American monk who has gone above and beyond to salvage records around the world. Finally, happy 100th birthday to “Cheese-It!” It’s a classic snack that generations of ancestors have enjoyed.

Next, Don Milne of Stories Behind The Stars joins Fisher for an update on his project to write biographies for every American service person killed in World War 2. One state has already completed all of theirs! Hear who it is and what you can do to help where you are.

Then, Crista Cowan joins the show from sponsor to discuss your free access to through the Memorial Day Weekend to mine the stories of your military ancestors. Crista will then share an update on newly released Ancestry databases.

David then rejoins Fisher for Ask Us Anything. First up… a question on jewelry heirlooms. Then, a DNA match seems to be a… um… mistake? (Not so fast!)
