Host Scott Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and AmericanAncestors.org. David opens “Family Histoire News” with a story that Oregon is looking at reversing an 1845 law that outlaws dueling! Then, the Duchess of Cornwall is looking at buying back an ancestral home. Next, there’s woman who is apparently still receiving her father’s war pension… from the CIVIL War! And finally, David discusses his plans to honor those World War I vets who died in the “War to End All Wars.” Listen to find out how you can be a part of his special tribute during this centennial year of the US entering the War.
Next, Fisher visits with Karen Batchelor, a Detroit woman, best known as the first African-American to join the DAR back in 1977. Karen is still a passionate genie and is on to a new project. Wait until you hear what it is and why she is doing it!
Then, Thomas MacEntee from High Definition Genealogy in Chicago joins Fisher to talk DNA. National DNA Day is upon us, and Thomas talks about the latest trends in DNA, and how to take advantage of discounts on DNA tests that come at this time each year.
Then, Preservation Authority Tom Perry, from TMCPlace.com, talks about how you can digitize your own photo negatives.
That’s all this week on Extreme Genes, America’s Family History Show!
