Thanks for listening to Extreme Genes Family History Radio!

Dec 20, 2021

Host Scott Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and The guys begin this last show of 2021 with a heartwarming story. Adopted siblings have found each other using DNA and are spending their first Christmas season together in over 50 years. Then, David talks about 68 Acadian families who were in Maine in 1790, but were passed over by the census taker. Those families have now been reconstructed through other records and published in a new book. Next, hear about the remarkable flight of a photo from the disastrous tornados in Kentucky to a window in Indiana, and BACK to its owner! Also hear about new finds including children playing with old human bones that led to a historic discovery and a billionaire turning in his ill gotten bounty from the black market.

Next, Fisher visits with Barbara Clements from Lombard, Illinois. Barbara’s family had a longstanding family legend about their Native American ancestry.  She has learned now how that story came to be and the “why” behind it.

Then, Crista Cowan from sponsor comes on to talk about changes coming to the super-site and new assets coming our way soon!

David then returns for two more listener questions on Ask Us Anything.

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