Extreme Genes: Family History Radio

    From Spit to Screen


    Host Scott Fisher opens up the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and AmericanAncestors.org. The guys first pay tribute to affiliate WRKO in Boston that recently raised some $230,000 for veterans on Veterans Day. David then tells of the recent passing of what may be the last Massachusetts vet of one particular major World War II engagement. Hear how old he was and what he was a part of. Next, the guys talk about a man who always thought his birth parents were long deceased in a foreign land, and how his spit showed him he had bad information. An incredible piece of family history has come back to one family some 75 years after it was created in the harshest of circumstances.
