It’s a great time to be a genealogist who watches TV. The latest genealogy television series to announce its season premiere is Genealogy Roadshow, whose season 3, episode 1, airs Tuesday, May 17, 2016, on PBS.
The series, sponsored by Ancestry.com, visits Boston, Miami, Houston and Los Angeles in its four episodes. In each one, sleuths D. Joshua Taylor, Kenyatta Berry and Mary Tedesco help everyday people (some of whom have done a little genealogy) investigate family stories and learn more about their roots.
Other television series featuring genealogy research to look for:
- Finding Your Roots With Henry Louis Gates Jr., airing Tuesdays at 8/7 Central on PBS (you can watch many full episodes on the show’s website)
- Relative Race, airing Sundays at 6 p.m. on BYUtv (available through many cable networks, or you can watch online)
- Long Lost Family, airing Sundays at 10/9 central on TLC
- Who Do You Think You Are?, premiering Sunday, April 3 at 9/8 Central on TLC (see the celebrity guest lineup here)
