More Prime Time Genealogy!


NGS predicts that genealogy will soon be the new black. Right on the heels of an all-new season of Who Do You Think You Are? comes a brand new genealogy series brought to you by the Queen of Media herself. Searching For... premieres Feb. 14 on OWN, the Oprah Winfrey Network. The docu-series focuses on Pam Slaton, a real-life professional investigative genealogist, as she helps clients track down their loved ones. Pam's commitment to helping others is anchored by the devastating experience she had in her own search for her birth mother 20 years ago.


There's no doubt about it: with Oprah's name behind this project, genealogy will be catapulted into the mainstream with more energy than ever. See more at the show's homepage. Then, weigh in with your thoughts on the NGS Facebook page.
