History and science come together for the premiere of Genealogy Roadshow. The four-part program airs at 9pm Mondays from Sept. 23 through Oct. 14 on ThinkTV16 and CET.
Genealogy Roadshow’s premiere season will include people from Nashville, Austin, Detroit and San Francisco out to explore genealogical claims passed down through family history that may or may not connect them to an event or historical figure. Experts use genealogy, history and DNA along with family heirlooms, letters, pictures, historical documents and other clues to hunt down more information. They also chat with local historians to add color and context to the investigations and family stories.
The first city featured is Nashville, a cultural crossroad in the American South – famous for country music, Civil War history, architecture, arts and much more. Check out the preview here: http://video.thinktv.org/video/2365079400/ or http://watch.cetconnect.org/video/2365079400/.
