Host Scott Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and AmericanAncestors.org. David opens congratulating Fisher on his new ExtremeGenes.com website and course offerings. The guys then dive into an amazing collection of 1860s era handwritten genealogies currently on eBay. They were created in response to an author’s request and were later used to create a book on descendants of the Hart and Andrews families. They are a great example of what might be found on your family!
Next, Fisher visits with Anthony Redgrave of the DNA Doe Project. Anthony and his team were able to identify murder victim… one that was found in a cave and dates back to 1916! Hear how they got the job done!
Then Fisher chats with Robert Cushing of Legacy Tree Genealogists. A Georgia native, Robert talks about the records of the South which are forever lost, as well as others that survived the Civil War that can help you in your Southern research. There’s often more out there than you think!
Then, David returns for more of your questions on Ask Us Anything.
That’s all this week on Extreme Genes, America’s Family History Show!
