Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and AmericanAncestors.org. Fisher speaks briefly about his recent trip to Germany. David then addresses a 109-year-old Englishman who doesn’t want a card from the Queen. Hear why! Then, a Swiss Court has disallowed the naming of a baby. Hear what the name was supposed to be and why they nixed it. Then, David talks about making a company that is making a beer to match a DNA test. Also, a 16-year-old got the gift of a lifetime from her grandfather. Catch what it is. David then spotlights blogger Amie Bowser Tennant. Read her blog about the War of 1812 records at TheGenealogyReporter.com.
Next, Fisher talks with Steve Waters from FamilySearch.org. Steve is giving you the opportunity to point FamilySearch in the right direction in finding important genealogical records that have not yet been digitized.

Fisher then visits with a Brigham City, Utah man, Barr Cannon, about a genealogical find that took him and his wife, literally, around the world! And it all began in New Zealand with an antique book case.
Finally, Tom Perry from TMCPlace.com, the Preservation Authority, answers another listener question about how to affordably digitize a massive quantity of materials, as well as how you may want to preserve the originals.
That’s all this week on Extreme Genes, America’s Family History Show.
