Do You Live in the Philly Area? Have an Interesting Genealogy Story? Genealogy Roadshow is Currently Casting for Philadelphia

We often talk about Who Do You Think You Are (see Related Articles below) and that is not the only genealogically-themed TV show for us to view.  We have previously also mentioned Genealogy Roadshow, History Detectives, Finding Your Roots with Henry Louis Gates, Jr, and others.

You can currently catch this season’s episodes of Genealogy Roadshow – Austin, San Francisco, Nashville, and Detroitonline

If you live in the Philadelphia area, you still have a chance to participate in that episode (taping in October), since the show is currently casting there.  Watch the same website for any future casting notices.

Is there a family legend you would like to explore? Is there a missing piece or person in your family tree you’ve always wondered about?

Do you believe you might be connected to our nation's rich history and folklore?

Have you discovered an ancestral link to a founding father or an American icon?

Is there a family story passed down for generations you would like investigated and finally answered?

If so, we’d love to hear from you! To apply to have your story told on national television, please complete the application form. Please note our casting staff will contact you if your information is being considered.

The neat element of Genealogy Roadshow is that the stories are all the stories of readers like you and I.  Not to say that “our” readers are not famous in their own right !

If you have previously participated in a Genealogy Roadshow program, tell us what you thought about the experience (the not just what was shown on TV elements!).
