Fisher opens with a recap of this week’s episode of Who Do You Think You Are? featuring Modern Family’s Jesse Tyler Ferguson. (Once again, an ancestor was accused of a crime!) Rachel McAdams is featured this week. In this week’s “Family Histoire News…” With the centennial of the start of World War I, a lot of new resources for researching your ancestor, as well as books about the experiences are out. Fisher talks about “Wyndham’s War,” from the diaries of a British man who was vacationing in Germany when the war began, and was held there for four years. Also, New York Mayor Bill DeBlasio is visiting his ancestral hometowns in Italy, and are they rolling out the red carpet! (If you’ve ever taken that kind of trip, you’ll be SO jealous of the treatment!)
Then (starts at 11:52), our guest for two full segments is 89-year-old Ralph Gates. Ralph’s father served in World War I and shares some of his story. Ralph himself served in World War II. As a teenager, he was assigned to work on the Manhattan Project! What was his role? How did he feel about how the war ended? We talk about it all with Ralph Gates.
Tom Perry from TMCPlace.com is back to answer your preservation questions.
