Thanks for listening to Extreme Genes Family History Radio!

Jan 9, 2023

Host Scott Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and The guys talk about holiday break projects they undertook, and a super remarkable find of Fisher’s that will lead to next week’s show. David then shares a fun formula for determining your “Royal” name. (Perfect for parties!) He then talks about a pair of twin sisters, each adopted out separately, who recently found one another after 36 years and wound up on a TV game show together! Catch the details. Then, a 500-year-old family tree has been discovered in China. David has more. Next, imagine learning that your housekeeper is also your cousin. It has happened, thanks to DNA!

In the first interview of the year, Fisher visits with Kristen Winger from sponsor Legacy Tree Genealogists. Kristen recently revisited an old family story with “fresh eyes” and even more experience to uncover a remarkable story of reunion, long before DNA.

Next, old friend of the show Maureen Taylor, the Photo Detective, comes on. The two talk about how, while it’s difficult to know who will get original photos, it shouldn’t be difficult to share the images themselves. Maureen talks about creating ancestral (even pet!) photo albums, and some of the best places to do it.

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

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