I know I’m not the only one excited to watch Genealogy Roadshow on PBS this fall. The network just announced the on-air talent for the show, which includes Los Angeles-based broadcaster Emmett Miller as host, along with genealogy experts Joshua Taylor and Kenyatta Berry.
The show will shoot in four cities: Austin, Nashville, Detroit and San Francisco, each episode shot in a historical location. Participants in the show will “explore unverified genealogical claims, passed down through their family history, which may (or may not) connect them to an event of historical figure,” according to the PBS website page linked above. Does it make me a true genealogy nerd that I think that sounds like a fun and fascinating idea for a show?
The show will air Monday nights on PBS September 23 through October 14, 2013.
