NBC’s genealogy-reality TV series “Who Do You Think You Are?” will now premiere this fall, according to Genealogy Gems blogger and podcast host Lisa Louise Cooke.

Reports about the show surfaced last year (we covered it in the September 2008 Family Tree Magazine). Genealogists were thrilled when it was finally scheduled to begin in April, but the premiere was postponed. Let’s hope this new date sticks.

The US version of “Who Do You Think You Are?”, hosted by Lisa Kudrow of “Friends” fame, is based on Britain’s successful show of the same name, which traces celebrities’ family trees.

NBC’s Web site for the show also says the network has partnered with Ancestry.com to produce a microsite where users can start their own family trees and learn more about the featured celebrities’ trees.
