Thanks for listening to Extreme Genes Family History Radio!

Nov 22, 2021

Host Scott Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and The guys begin with some Thanksgiving thanks for the 400th episode of the show! Fisher then thanks for featuring him on the blog section. David then shares some stories he picked up on his recent visit to Utah, including a woman with a bizarre tale about Extreme Genes as she listened to it in Florida. In her shower. Then, in Family Histoire News, David talks about some relicts that were recently found in Utah tied to the Chinese workers who played a large role in the construction of the Trans-Continental Railroad. In the east, the Washington Post reports that the Wampanoags are not looking forward to the recognition of the 400th anniversary of the first Thanksgiving. Hear why. Then, the BBC has come up with a great story about the general populace and their likely ties to royalty.

Next, Fisher visits with Wendell Affield, the author of a series of books on his family history called the Chickenhouse Chronicles. They’ve been created with a large assist from 200 years worth of family history records found in his mother’s chicken house in Minnesota! Catch his remarkable story.

The conversation then turns to genealogical societies. Shannon Combs Bennett has been researching the history of these organizations and has learned about the timeline, and attitudes within and toward these groups over the years. She even has a count of how many have existed and still exist in the United States.

David then returns for Ask Us Anything, including a question of foster children’s inheritance rights, and FBI records.

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