Host Scott Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and AmericanAncestors.org. David is fresh back from Scotland where he made an incredible genealogical discovery. Hear what it is. The guys then exchange stories about their Revolutionary ancestors in anticipation of Independence Day. Then, it is a major announcement from FamilySearch.org that has everybody talking. It’s an important one. Next, David reveals the historic, genealogical document that recently sold at auction for what might buy you a lovely home for in some places! Hint: It has to do with witchcraft.
Then, Fisher visits with Mary Ann Kester of Topeka, Kansas about her recently developed skill… grave witching. She used it to accomplish a feat that attracted a lot of attention. Hear what she did, how she did it, and how you may be able to do the same thing.
In segment three, Fisher talks with Donya “Papoose” Williams and Brian Sheffey, two “southern cousins” who are hard at work trying to identify all 45 CHILDREN of one ancestor! It’s an amazing story of a long-lived man whose life spanned from the colonial era to long past the Civil War. Hear how their project is going and, as they say… “the rest of the story!”
Then it’s Tom Perry talking preservation. Tom uses a listener question about a scratched X-Box DVD to illustrate what you need to know about recovering and storing your digitized disks.
That’s all this week on Extreme Genes, America’s Family History Show and Extreme Genes.com.
