If you live in Framingham, Massachusetts, you probably will be interested in the following message I received from Dave Robertson:
I wanted to let you know that I'm having a new genealogy show on cable here in Framingham called "Genealogy Today with Dave Robertson" which can be viewed by anyone in Framingham. Also you can ask you local Public Access TV to show it on your town's station.
It's not going to be a how-to show, but we will be giving advice to help people do their genealogy better and we will be commenting on Issues in the news and from time to time we will interview guests on the show. The show is in production now and they won't give me an air date till four shows are in the can. I hope to be able to complete that this month and go on-air in November. It is to be available on FPAC-TV, Framingham's Public Access Television.
We are going to ask viewers to write in and tell us what things they are researching or if something is giving them a problem. The first four shows are "The Premier;" Proof; An interview with the author of a Genealogy of the Wampanoag Tribe; and a take off from one of your columns "The Mother of all Genealogy Databases," where we examine access to records and the privacy question.
I think it's going to be great fun and I'm really excited about it.
David T. Robertson, host
Great news! That sounds like a great service for local genealogists, and I suspect you will enjoy producing it. Good luck with the show, Dave.
Question: does anyone else have a genealogy program on local cable TV, regular TV or on radio stations? If so, please let me know, and I'll make a list and publish it in this newsletter.
