From what I can tell, the concept is that the show is “Antiques Roadshow” meets “Who Do You Think You Are?” On the show, advertisers help average people explore unverified genealogical claims (stories passed down through the generations). I don’t know about you, but that sounds like a good time to me! According to the show’s website, “Genealogy Roadshow will unearth family and community secrets, reveal notable relatives and discover unexpected stories that connect the past to the present.”
I’m not able to watch live, since I’m out of town, but thanks to the miracle of the PBS Roku channel, I’ll be able to watch it on demand when I get home. Or, I’m sure, I can watch it on my computer at PBS’ website.
I can’t wait! Will you be tuning in?
