From the Family Tree Insider blog:
I learned a little more about PBS' upcoming Genealogy Roadshow series while at the Federation of Genealogical Societies' Conference last week.
The show, slated to air Mondays from 9 to 10 p.m. ET starting Sept. 23, 2013 will combine history and science to uncover the roots of everyday Americans. This season's participants come from four cities: Nashville, Tenn.; Austin, Texas; Detroit; and San Francisco.
Genealogy experts will explore unverified family history claims about connections to a famous event or historical figure by using family heirlooms, records, DNA and local historians.
The experts will reveal many of the answers they discover in front of a live audience in a location relevant to the participant's family history.
