Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and American Ancestors talking about naming patterns, and how they can often reveal the names of the parents’ ancestors. Are clues to your ancestor’s ancestors sitting right under your nose? Fisher and David will tell you how to break the code. David then talks about the revealing of the identities of remains from the old Jamestown settlement. Might one of them be your ancestor? David then reports on the controversial reduction of assets at the genealogy library in Phoenix, and shares another Tech Tip of the Week, and NEHGS free database!
In segment two, Ancestry’s Jennifer Utley, lead researcher for “Who Do You Think You Are?” talks about the celebrities in this season’s episodes. Who was most interesting to work with, and where did they film? Jennifer will provide the inside story.
Then, Stan Lindaas of HeritageConsulting.com returns to talk about criminal ancestors and why they shouldn’t be hidden from your children and grandchildren. Stan’s got some crazy stories from his own lines and from others.
Then, Tom Perry from TMCPlace.com, the Preservation Authority, talks about Fisher’s problem with old slides that have slipped out of their protective cardboard holders. How can those images be digitized or even viewed? As always, Tom has the solutions. (If you have a preservation question, email Tom at AskTom@tmcplace.com.)
It’s all this week on Extreme Genes- America’s Family History Show!
