I recently had a chance to interview professional genealogist Megan Smolenyak Smolenyak when we were both on a cruise ship in the Caribbean, along with 350+ other genealogists. Megan is well known in the genealogy community for her many activities: she is the Chief Family Historian at Ancestry.com, runs a DNA search service, researches the ancestry of notable people and is the author or co-author of several books on the same topics. What many people do not know is that Megan is also one of the people who created Roots Television.
Megan and I discussed a number of the number of topics, even including what life is like on a genealogy cruise. A Roots Television cameraman was available (naturally!) and recorded our conversation. If you are interested in any of her many topics, you can watch the video right now at http://rootstelevision.com/players/player_conferences.php?bctid=1323280470.
