Host Scott Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society. David begins “Family Histoire News” with a story from Germany that should serve as a warning to anybody who buys military related memorabilia at a flea market. Then, it’s the story of a group of guys who posed for a picture in 1966, only to recreate it five decades later. Hear all about it. Then, it’s been a remarkable journey for an 88-year-old Holocaust survivor who has belatedly (for obvious reasons) completed an important life milestone. David next talks about a unique Connecticut cemetery… one that was made for slaves, with many of the tombstones created by slaves. David then puts the blogger spotlight on John Grenham’s Irish Roots, johngrenham.com.blog, a great place to interact regularly on Irish history and genealogy.

Next, Fisher catches up with writer Audrey Brasich who recently published a great article in Realtor.com on adult children buying or moving into their childhood homes or ancestral homes. Audrey’s got some great stories and advice if you’re considering such a move.

Then, Photo Detective Maureen Taylor rejoins the show with advice on spring cleaning your photo collection. Looking to “declutter?” Maureen will tell you what you should and shouldn’t eliminate, and how to maximize the family value of your ancestral photographs.

Tom Perry from TMCPlace, the Preservation Authority, drops in to talk about the latest equipment and software that has him “geeked” up! If you’re thinking “Do It Yourself” or even about starting your own preservation business, you’ll want to hear what Tom has to say.

That’s all this week on Extreme Genes, America’s Family History Show!
