WDYTYA is not just a US or UK Phenomenon ....

Tomorrow is a night that many have been waiting for, the start of the 5th season of Who Do You Think You Are?

I’ve always known about the UK version of the show, upon which the US version is based, and it got me curious to know if there are other versions.

The answer is YES.  The Wikipedia page for the UK version, has a list of international versions.  Who knows, maybe one of your ancestral lines has been a subject presented on one of these other verions.
