Host Scott Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and American Ancestors.org. David opens with disturbing news about the New York City Department of Health, which is attempting to limit access to certain vital records. Find out what they are. Then, a World War I submarine has been found in 100 feet of water. Find out where, and what happens next. Then, a pair of twins who served in World War II have just turned 99 years old! What’s their story? David will tell you. Then, it’s a wedding day miracle. Find out what happened months after a couple’s camera, with all their wedding day, pix was swept away by a rogue wave in California. David then shines his blogger spotlight on Mags Gaulden and her GrandmasGenes.com/blog.
Then, Fisher visits with Jim Power from the NEHGS. Jim learned some time ago that his family is apparently connected to the notorious Dalton Gang! Jim’s been researching this for some time now. Hear the puzzle pieces he has picked up and you decide!
Then, Janet Hovorko from FamilyChartmasters.com and Genealogy.coach talks about what to do when you get stuck. It’s not truly a brick wall until you’ve done many of the things that Janet shares.
Then, Preservation Authority Tom Perry continues his ongoing education on how to recover photos and documents that have been damaged (especially by water) in natural disasters such as the recent string of hurricanes. Even if you have material damaged by a washing machine overflow, you’ll want to hear what Tom has to say!
That’s all this week on Extreme Genes, America’s Family History Show!
