Host Scott Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and AmericanAncestors.org. The guys open the show talking about the 75th anniversary of the D-Day invasion. You’ll be amazed to hear what some of the old veterans are doing as part of the commemoration. Then, David talks about the loss of another key player from the Pacific Theater of World War II. The guys will tell you what made this late Marine especially significant. Next, it’s good news from the New York State Senate for adoptees. Catch the latest. If you’re into Irish genealogy, David has some great news for you out of the Emerald Isle. (Note this address: irishgenealogy.ie.) Then, who would have imagined that Blackbeard would be part of a case coming before the Supreme Court. Catch some of the details. Then, it has happened for real this time… the “Clotilda,” considered the last slave ship in the US, has been found. Catch some of the details.
Next, author, TV host, and genealogist Kenyatta Berry visits with Fisher about a host of things. They start with Kenyatta’s reaction to the find of the slave ship “Clotilda,” and its potential impact on the African-American community. Kenyatta then talks about African-American DNA testing and some great advice for anyone seeking to write a family history. It’s two parts of genealogy goodness!
Then on “Ask Us Anything,” Fisher visits with Janet Hovorka, co-founder of FamilyChartMasters.com. This is the time of year a lot of people look to make family charts for reunions. Catch some of Janet’s advice.
