Host Scott Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and AmericanAncestors.org. David begins by sharing news that he has been featured in an article about his witch ancestor in London’s Guardian newspaper. In Family Histoire News, an Englishman has learned he descends from some Bidens. Those Bidens! Now he wants an invitation to the White House! Then, another metal detectorist in the UK has made quite a find… in his own backyard. Catch what he discovered. Then, another member of the famous Von Trapp family has passed away. David next talks about a unique type of DNA analysis that has proven the descendancy of the great grandson of Sitting Bull. And finally… a World War I ammunition shell has been found to be loaded… with many things other than powder and weaponry. Find out what was in it!

Next, Paul Woodbury of Legacy Tree Genealogists visits with Fisher for two segments. The first talks about mitochondrial DNA. What can you use it for in your research? And what might be expecting too much? Paul explains.

In part two, Paul Woodbury discusses “confirmation bias.” Are you guilty of confirming your researching by an incorrect analysis? Paul explains what NOT to do as you begin your genetic genealogy.

Then, David returns for two rounds of Ask Us Anything.

That’s all this week on Extreme Genes, America’s Family History Show!
