The following is an announcement from History Detectives:
January 5 - Did your family make its mark on history? Your genealogy research could land you on History Detectives, the hit PBS program, produced by OPB TV, which returns for its third season this summer.
Is your family history connected to a significant moment in America's history? Let History Detectives in on the story! If your genealogy research has turned up clues that your ancestors played a key role in a history-making event, History Detectives wants to help you piece the puzzle together. You and the ghosts of ancestors past could appear on PBS's hit series this summer!
History Detectives will also feature a school-kid History Detective this summer along with their cool case. Kids are urged to ask relatives if there is a family mystery that needs solving, then grab a parent and go to the History Detectives Web site where you can submit it together. The detectives are looking for stories about old houses, family heirlooms, or local legends that might contain a fascinating mystery from our nation's past. If your story is chosen, you'll appear on the programs and solve your mystery right alongside our detectives on TV.
Submit your mystery online at pbs.org/historydetectives or by mail:
