Extreme Genes: Family History Radio

    Quakers Leave Long Record


    Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert and they talk about Virginia’s ongoing challenge to Massachusetts’ claim of having the first Thanksgiving. Next, Fisher visits with Anita and her half-brother, John, who only learned about one another a few months ago after their daughters took DNA tests and discovered they were close cousins. It’s another fascinating DNA adventure that begins with World War II and a Polish girl forced to do labor for the Nazis.

    Then, Fisher visits with LegacyTree.com researcher Katy Barnes about the amazing records of the “Society of Friends,” more commonly called “Quakers.” Perhaps no early religious organization or society left better records than this English Separatist group.
