Fisher opens the show a great question from a listener about displaying and preserving a century old passport, and who to trust with the project. Hear Fisher’s answer as it could apply to many projects. Then, in Family Histoire News, excitement is brewing in New England, where a time capsule left by Paul Revere and Samuel Adams is likely to be opened soon!
Then, Col. Gail Halvorsen, best known as “The Berlin Candy Bomber” joins the show to talk about how his one little act of kindness resulted in hope for the besieged people of West Berlin in the 1940s. It’s an intriguing story right from the mouth of the 94-year-old Halvorsen who remembers it all like it was yesterday. (This should remind you to interview your senior relatives to capture their family stories.)
Then, Tom Perry, the Preservation Authority from TMCPlace.com, talks “room deadening,” and mic technique with Fisher to help give you the technical outcome everyone hopes for when recording interviews with family members.
That’s this week on Extreme Genes, America’s Family History Show!
