    New tv show-genealogy related

    There is a new tv show on NBC that traces the genealogy of celebrities. It started last Friday night but I missed it. Since many here are into genealogy, I thought I would post a link:

    http://www.nbc.com/who-do-you-think-you-are/

    Last week was Sarah Jessica Parker. This week is Emmitt Smith.

    You can watch the video of the first one at the link.

    Going to check it out now...

    Thank you for posting this, it's the first that i have heard of it. Maybe it will get more people interested in genealogy. It's habit forming once you get into it. 35 years for me and still going. Happy Hunting as they say.

    Polly,

    Emmitt Smith's story was very touching. I was surprised that he appeared to not realize that slavery is still ongoing in Africa (but maybe it just looked that way to make the show interesting).


    Here is another show I was unaware of that aired in February on PBS. You can watch all the episodes online. Different format (I like the NBC format better) but just as interesting.

    I'm making strides on my family tree and you are right...it's addictive! If ever my stupid house that is on the market would sell, it would free up some funds so that I can do much better research, but I guess it will sell one day...sigh

    Grits
    Very Happy
