Manage episode 273681247 series 38524
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 with news of a great new database from the Library of Congress that allows you to search the captions in newspaper photos to find pictures tied to your family or area of interest. Then the Russian State Public History Library has now made public a huge number of genealogical documents, largely covering the Soviet Union era. Next, the USS Constitution, America’s oldest commissioned ship, now has a database to help us learn about the crew of the ship in the War of 1812. Then, Places of Pride, an Australian site, has now made available online their national registration of every war memorial in the country. Might your ancestor’s name be on one?
Renowed genetic genealogist CeCe Moore returns to the show to talk about many things. She and Fisher begin with a discussion of a legal request by the grandson of President Warren G. Harding to have his remains exhumed so their DNA might be compared. It’s a strange case with many ramifications. CeCe then talks about her television show and the latest in the use of genetic genealogy in identifying suspects in cold cases and violent crimes.
David then returns for Ask Us Anything as he and Fisher tackle questions about old license plates and related databases and Crown Land records in Nova Scotia.
That’s all this week on Extreme Genes, America’s Family History Show!
