On this week’s show, Fisher shares the latest family history news, including a shocking story involving a 1964 kidnap victim and what DNA has told him. He also talk about a firefighter whose family lost all the memorabilia of his firefighting grandfather then later received an amazing gift that neither he nor his family sought.
Progenealogists.com researcher Gordon Remington fills us in on the history of the “line back to Adam,” and why you just might need to hit the delete button on that one. (Sorry!) He also tells us about family crests. If you have one or are thinking about getting one, you might want to hear this first! Plus… coats of arms. What do they mean? How did they start? Is yours the real deal? Hear all about it from Gordon. Read the story behind them here: http://www.progenealogists.com/coatofarms.htm
And Tom Perry from TMC: The MultiMedia Centers, talks about restoring the unrestorable. Tom has restored all kinds of materials that have been through all kinds of disasters.
Fisher also follows up on a question about last week’s issue… lawmakers limiting access to birth, death, and marriage records.
