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 Family Histoire News with the horrifying story of a mix up at a funeral home. Listen to hear what happened. Then, it’s an interesting list of misconceptions about the 1918 flu pandemic. David, who lost a relative in this world wide event, shares a few items on the list. Then, it appears that the last ship to bring slaves to America (1860) may have been located near Mobile, Alabama. Find out about the discovery. David then features GenealogyGirl.com, Melissa Dickerson, whose recent blog on World War I vets caught David’s eye.

Then, Fisher visits with Abundant Genealogy’s Thomas MacEntee. Thomas made the Genealogy Do Over famous and is now touting something new for 2018… the DNA Do Over. Hear what he has to say about making sure you’re using your pricey tests in the right way.

David Allen Lambert then returns to talk to Fisher about “Runaway Ads.” Fisher recently found one concerning a 3rd great grandfather who left his family in 1818. These amazing ads, many of which are now digitized, often have great detail about various family members. Hear some examples of what you might want to look for.

Next, Tom Perry, the Preservation Authority from TMCPlace.com, returns to answer two more listener questions. Email your questions to AskTom@TMCPlace.com, or post it to his Twitter page at @askTomP.

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

The Genealogy Do-Over for 2018 with Thomas MacEntee

Research at the National Archives and Beyond!

The Genealogy Do-Over (https://genealogydo-over.com) is an online educational initiative to improve genealogical and family history research skills. The Facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/genealogydoover/) has over 15,000 members working through the monthly topics provided by genealogy author and educator Thomas MacEntee.

The goal of The Genealogy Do-Over is not to wallow in regrets over the mistakes we've made with our genealogy in the past. Do-Over members are willing to set aside years of research and start over - from scratch! 

And finally, a NEW FEATURE  is added for 2018 - the DNA Do-Over! This group targets genealogists and family historians who have taken DNA tests but really haven't put their DNA data to work! Patterned after The Genealogy Do-Over, we cover one topic each month and improve our genetic genealogy education in a supportive atmosphere.

What happens when a “tech guy” with a love for history gets laid off during The Great Recession of 2008? You get Thomas MacEntee, a genealogy professional based in the United States who is also a blogger, educator, author, social media connector, online community builder and more.

Thomas was laid off after a 25-year career in the information technology field, so he started his own genealogy-related business called High Definition Genealogy. 

Thomas describes himself as a lifelong learner with a background in a multitude of topics who has finally figured out what he does best: teach, inspire, instigate, and serve as a curator and go-to-guy for concept nurturing and inspiration. Thomas is a big believer in success, and that we all succeed when we help each other find success.
