Genealogy Never Looked So Cool

Who Do You Think You Are?I admit it: I’m addicted to genealogy.  So, there was no way I was going to miss the new TV show Who Do You Think You Are?  No way!  It’s a polished, moving series of episodes featuring stars such as Sarah Jessica Parker, Spike Lee, Brooke Shields, and others discovering their heritage.  Along the way you get an inside view of American history (as well as other countries) putting faces to the stories.  If you’re new to researching your family, check out the new companion book to the series by Megan Smolenyak, the chief family historian and spokesperson for Ancestry.com.
