PBS’ "Genealogy Roadshow" Season Two Premieres 13 January 2015

Last week we talked about the upcoming season of WDYTYA and this week we do the same for Genealogy Roadshow. Genealogy Roadshow fans will be happy to hear that the next season will start on 13 January 2015, 8ET on PBS.

From descendants of the infamous pirate Blackbeard to heroes of the Holocaust, PBS’ Genealogy Roadshow uncovers family secrets in the series’ second season, which premieres Tuesday, January 13, 2015, at 8:00 p.m. ETand airs every Tuesdaythrough February 24 (check local listings). Part detective story, part emotional journey, Genealogy Roadshow combines history and science to uncover fascinating stories of diverse Americans in and around St. Louis, Philadelphia and New Orleans.  Each individual’s story links to a larger community (and in some cases, national) history, to become part of America’s rich cultural tapestry.
