The Genealogy Roadshow is about to release season 3! The brand new episodes will air beginning on May 17, 2016. Episodes from season one and season two are available on the Genealogy Roadshow website. The Genealogy Roadshow has been described as “part detective story, part emotional journey”. It combines history and science to uncover fascinating stories of diverse Americans.
The Genealogy Roadshow is similar in format to the Antiques Roadshow. Both shows are on PBS. Both shows feature people who have a special antique or heirloom that they want to know more about. Those that bring items to the Antiques Roadshow are typically trying to find out how much their item is worth. People bring items to the Genealogy Roadshow in an effort to learn more about the family member who owned that item.
