He is the chief genealogist of the New England historic genealogical society and American ancestors dot org, and he's got your family. He store news. Hi, david. How are you? I'm doing good fish. How about yourself? Awesome. Where do we begin today, my friend, well smoking is hazardous Jerry health but pipe smoking from long ago may be beneficial to your genealogy recent findings with DNA inside pipe stems isn't this incredible? They're actually finding the pipes were porous people who smoke these pipes years ago left. Their saliva inside them, and we're talking like from the seventeenth century the eighteenth century the nineteenth century, and they're actually getting some DNA samples that are viable out of these clay pipes on extreme genes. Some of the pipe stems that are discussing the article online include those that were from slave quarters down in Maryland and one of them they find that genetic ancestry was back to Sierra Leone, and they're even talking about excavating a local cemetery there that may contain the remains of some of these slaves and see if they could match that up with the permission of the descendants. So it's a very interesting story. That's still developing. It really isn't. Speaking of interesting stories going across the pond, we've all heard the greatest cold-case story as Jack the ripper. Now, they're saying that they may have DNA evidence from shawl, but hopes before we go with that as a positive green light. There were people like Dr Adam Rutherford over in the UK. And it says that the shawl the providence is not certain and that it's been handled by too many descendants. So it may have corrupted the DNA, so there's a whole controversy on social media on the software. Staying tuned on this story. Yeah. Wouldn't that be something though, if they could determine for sure the identity of Jack the ripper through DNA? It would be amazing to finally put closure on that after one hundred and thirty plus years. It's amazing. Incredible. Well, we are digging into the past and lake George while they were putting it some new houses they found a cemetery not Metairie from recently. But from the revolutionary war at least eighteen skeletons have been found, and they found the revolutionary war buttons. And they believe it may come from a nearby smallpox hospital. Wow. So you may have an ancestor that died out lake George New York. They may have found him. You know, a veterans are definitely in our news a lot and one I think really touch us home. And it's a great story on extreme jeans. Gary Mark what out of Minnesota? He didn't serve in Vietnam. But he wants to honor those that did and other wars in he is now planning on doing at least a hundred funerals. He's not an undertaker. He's a bugler imagine this. He couldn't play the bugle just a few years ago, he realized playing recordings of taps at these military funerals. And he said no somebody needs to be playing live. So we started taking lessons. So he could be that guy that plays at the military funerals. And he says, you know, I'm I'm okay, he said, I don't always play perfect. But it always comes from the heart. Unbelievable while he's part of bugles across America. And they're only five thousand of these guys and they do over one hundred thirty thousand veterans funerals year while you don't want extreme jeans. I like to share with you the popular tweets that I put out there. And I just put a strange one out there on baby names, and the fun thing about baby names, we know that we have them. But where did they come from have you ever done the genealogy where you got your name? Yes. Absolutely. Not only my name. But my daughter I've got a daughter Anna whose name her daughter, Anna named after my grandmother, Ana and it goes back into the seventeen hundreds in Sweden. My name is kind of weird because I was named after my uncle Winfield. Scott Hancock, Fisher junior who is named for my grandfather. Who was the same senior who is name. Named after Winfield. Scott Hancock who lost the presidential race in eighteen eighty the year. My grandfather was born who was then in turn named after Winfield Scott, the general in the war of eighteen twelve and he was born in seventeen eighty six is that what you're talking about. I'm trying to write this all down. I need a. Interesting thing in my family. The name Henry is still around with some of the descendants of my great grandfather's brother, and I did the backwards story on that. And it goes back to a fifth grade grandfather who was born in sixteen ninety five name Henry dole Newbury never know the name came from. Well, I would like to share with you a blogger spotlight shines on McCall Aaron rule. She is out of Utah. And she has a blog called making their stories known, and she wants to tell the stories of people places and things as a family historian the touchable. Her own research engineer allergy in general for recent one which was for Saint Paddy's day was my luck of the Irish where she goes on and talks about researching the Irish and touching on her own family as well as her roots tech summary. So kind of a person who is out there at root second. This is truly the next generation of Genealogists. And I'm glad they're out there blogging. Absolutely. All right.
