Fisher’s “Family Histoire” news this week covers two people who have had a struggle with their family history discoveries. The first is Barbara Haney from North Pole, Alaska (honest!). As an American she found out her ancestors were on the wrong side of things in the War of 1812. Find out why she struggled with this find and how she came to terms with it. The second is a man who calls himself “George Doe.” George took a DNA test, and like many of us, expected wonderful and interesting things to happen. The interesting things did happen… but they weren’t wonderful. Read his warning about DNA tests and find out what happened to his family as a result of his results!
In segments two and three (starts at 11:45), husband and wive team Alison Moore and Phil Lancaster tell us about the remarkable child relocation program called “The Orphan Train,” which ran out of New York City all over the country for 75 years. One in six Americans descend from a rider on these trains. Whether or not you are one of them, you will find this story amazing.
Then, Tom Perry from TMCPlace.com returns to talk about various disk types and what you must know to have the best chance of preserving your finds and one-of-a-kind photos for the long haul.
That’s this week on Extreme Genes, Family History Radio!
