NBC Television in conjunction with Ancestry.com will air an interesting 7-part series on Family History, beginning Friday March 5, 2010, at 8pm. The series is entitled Who Do You Think You Are? and will feature a heartwarming journey through family history, designed to show the importance of this pursuit and to inspire people to discover their family stories.
Featuring actors Sarah Jessica Parker, Emmitt Smith, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Broderick, Brooke Shields, Susan Sarandon, and Spike Lee, the series shows each of them being given insights into their own actual families--with some poignant moments.
Dave Martin saw a preview of the program at a February 20 genealogy workshop in Boston, and reports that it definitely rates watching. For details on the program, click on www.ancestry.com/spreadtheword.
