Here, we present a connection between a sequence of polynomials generated by a linear recurrence relation of order 2 and sequences of the generalized Gegenbauer-Humbert polynomials. Many new and known transfer formulas between non-Gegenbauer-Humbert polynomials and generalized Gegenbauer-Humbert polynomials are given. The applications of the relationship to the construction of identities of polynomial sequences defined by linear recurrence relations are also discussed.
