A new series GENEALOGY ROADSHOW begins Monday, September 23rd at 9/8 Central on the PBS channel. Part detective story, part emotional journey, Genealogy Roadshow will combine history and science to uncover fascinating stories of diverse Americans. Each individual’s past will link to a larger community history, revealing the rich cultural tapestry of America.
The show will feature participants from four American cities – Nashville, Austin, Detroit and San Francisco – who want to explore unverified genealogical claims, passed down through family history, that may (or may not) connect them to an important event or a historical figure. Join some of the nation’s top genealogists as they unearth family and community secrets, reveal infamous relatives and discover unexpected stories that connect the past to the present.
