On this weeks show Fisher talks about how someone’s ancestor just made one couple’s lives… by leaving them $10,000,000 in gold. Of course, he didn’t know he was doing it at the time. Plus, it was a 200 year old Dutch family Bible that somehow was “misplaced…” around 1910! Hear how it got back into the proper hands.
Rhonda McClure, researcher of the stars from the New England Historical and Genealogical Society talks about some of her interesting discoveries involving movie stars and the somewhat arduous process of finding out if you’re related to one. (Hey, they can’t put you in their will if you can’t prove you’re related!) Rhonda also talks about the NEHGS “Great Migration” project. If you even suspect you have New England blood, you’ll want to know about this.
