When I’m not watching, NBC’s “Who Do You Think You Are?” or PBS’s “Finding Your Roots” with Henry Louis Gates, Jr., I enjoy watching the local show Houston 8 that airs on Fridays at 8 PM. The May 4th show titled – Genealogy Today – will feature Bennett Greenspan, President and CEO, Family Tree DNA, George Allen, Afro-American Historical & Genealogical Society, Houston, and Susan Kaufman, Clayton Library for Genealogical Research, Houston Public Library.
So check out the show; enjoy!
On Houston 8 — RE-BUILDING OUR PAST — Genealogy Today
Now more than ever, we as a community are interested, and often fascinated, with our own past — who are we, where we come from, and finding our personal history. Books, documentaries and even shows like PBS’ “Finding Our Roots”, are capturing our attention. And now we can find these answers more easily than at any other time in our history — through the use of dedicated libraries, the internet and even with the use of science and DNA testing. This week on Houston 8, a look at how we can trace our family histories.
