Last week I wrote about Genealogy Roadshow’s search for New Orleans-area residents who want to explore their family history on national TV. Today, I learned the program’s producers are also looking for Philadelphia area residents for the same purpose.
The following is an extract from the WHYY-TV’s web page:
