“What Made America?” on PBS in February

A potentially powerful short series on PBS next month explores “What Made America?” through a look at the family trees of a number of Americans.

Thanks to Diane Haddad on her Family Tree Magazine blog for bringing this to our attention.

The program will be on Wednesdays from Feb. 10 to March 3 at 7.p.m. CST.

An excellent video preview is available at http://www.pbs.org/wnet/facesofamerica/.

This is one of the programs PBS is presenting about the heightened interest in genealogy in this country. It might present opportunities for local tie-in activities by our society.
