Those who would like an online video preview of the “Who Do You Think You Are” television series which starts March 5 at 7 p.m. on NBC, should click on the link below to go to a page with the three-minute video. A brief, G-rated commercial is played at the first. If you have a dial-up internet connection, it might be too slow, but you can go to your local library and use their computers to view it.
Among the celebrities featured are Matthew Broderick, Lisa Kudrow, Spike Lee, Sarah Jessica Parker, Susan Sarandon, Brooke Shields and Emmitt Smith.
There is likely to be a surge in interest in genealogy as this series runs perhaps like that which was generated with the now-famous Roots series. As genealogists we should be ready to answer questions of the newly interested. More on this in a later post.
