PBS’s “Genealogy Roadshow” is looking for Philadelphia-area Residents

Want to have your family history researched by the experts at Genealogy Roadshow?

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:

Genealogy Roadshow is an exciting and groundbreaking PBS documentary series that aims to reunite people from all walks of life with their past, present and future.


Expert genealogists will uncover rich and surprising history about the people and places that make up our incredibly diverse and fascinating country.

Is there a family legend you would like to explore?Is there a missing piece or person in your family tree you’ve always wondered about?

Do you believe you might be connected to our nation’s rich history and folklore?

Have you discovered an ancestral link to a founding father or an American icon?

Is there a family story passed down for generations you would like investigated and finally answered?

If so, we’d love to hear from you! To apply to have your story told on national television, please complete the application form. Please note our casting staff will contact you if your information is being considered.

For more info, go to http://www.WHYY.org/genealogy.


I wonder what happened to all the applications that were filled out after last season? I seem to remember filling one out – was that just to find out if there was enough interest in renewing the program?
