Genealogy Roadshow featuring Detroit airs Tomorrow, Monday September 30

Hi Everyone

I just wanted to remind you that the newest genealogy television show, Genealogy Roadshow, airs its second episode tomorrow, September 30. It features people from the Detroit area.

This episode was filmed at the Daley Rhea Mansion in the Indian Village area of Detroit. I found that the website for KPBS (the PBS station for San Diego, California) gives quite a bit more information on the Detroit episode; including some video clips from the episode. It also has a link to submit your "mystery" for the next season of the show. (If a second season is picked up, I do not know if they will continue the one-city approach to each episode. If they do continue that format, they probably will not return to Detroit for a while. We'll have to wait and see.)

A sneak peak of the Detroit episode was held at the Detroit Public Library last Tuesday, Sep. 24. I don't know if anyone from our group managed to attend.

Everyone has different television delivery/provider systems. So listed here are a few for your convenience. If yours is not listed below, use your television provider's schedule system or PBS Detroit's schedule system to find the PBS channel number on your provider system and to learn when the show will be re-aired again. (On PBS Detroit's schedule system you can customize the listing to your service provider by edit or change provider so the schedule generated reflects your television provider's channels and schedule.)

If you haven't worked on your genealogy in a while, choose some aspect of it and work on it. Review what you have, organize it, scan some photos, pick up a brick wall, work on a neglected ancestor, talk to an older relative, attend a new meeting -- do something!
