Host Scott Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and AmericanAncestors.org. The guys begin by talking about Fisher’s latest find that took a family ancestor from a Social Security card to a top security World War II Munitions plant. He explains the trail. Not to be outdone, David shares his find of a slew of pictures of ancestral gravestones that he was unable capture due to conditions on a visit to this Canadian cemetery several years ago. David then shares the news of the passing of what may have been the oldest living person ever! Then, if you ever thought about exploring your Irish ancestors in their home country, wait until you hear the job opening available right now in Ireland!
Next, Jim Ericson from FamilySearch.org visits to talk about the soon-to-be-released 1950 US Census. He’ll explain when you can see the images, when indexing is likely to be completed, and how you may be able to help in the effort. Jim also talks about the remarkable handwriting interpreting computer indexing effort happening right now in Central and South America.
Maureen Taylor, the Photo Detective, then hops on to visit with Fisher about holiday photos of the past and how they can enhance this year’s celebration.
David then returns for Ask Us Anything, taking questions on the reliability of family trees as well as using ancestral signatures to illustrate a history.
That’s all this week on Extreme Genes, America’s Family History Show!
If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.
