The following is extracted from an announcement concerning Danish Television’s Who Do You Think You Are?:
Danish Broadcasting Company’s recently aired Who Do You Think You Are? with Danish celebrity Anne Marie Helger, featured the work of two Rhode Island genealogists, Cherry Fletcher Bamberg and Shellee Morehead. Cherry Fletcher Bamberg, a fellow of the American Society of Genealogists and editor of the Rhode Island Genealogical Society’s quarterly magazine Rhode Island Roots, and Shellee Morehead, PhD, a professional genealogist specializing in RI and Italian immigrant family history, researched Ms. Helger’s immigrant relatives in Boston and Providence. Dr. Morehead was involved in the filming this summer, when the Who Do You Think You Are? crew from Denmark and Miss Helger were in the U.S. She appears in segments filmed at the Rhode Island School of Design and the Old North Burial Ground, in Providence, describing the lives of Otto Sonne, his wife Harriet Rothe and their children.
The U.S. version of Who Do You Think You Are? had an amazing first season, and another season is in the works. Many European countries have their own versions of the popular series, and there will be an international conference of Who Do You Think You Are?, The National History Show, sponsored by Ancestry.co.uk in February, 2011 in London, England.
