We have just finished taping our first season but would like to hear from you if you are interested in being part of the next season of GENEALOGY ROADSHOW.
Follow a diverse cast of participants on an emotional journey that uses history and science to uncover their fascinating family stories. Each individual’s past will link to a larger community history, revealing the rich cultural tapestry of America. The programs feature participants from four American cities — Nashville (Sept. 23), Detroit (Sept. 30), San Francisco (Oct. 7) and Austin (Oct. 14) — who want to explore a genealogical mystery. Emmett Miller hosts the series.
ROADSHOW genealogists investigate cases of two people who claim they’re descendants of American folk hero and Tennessee legend Davy Crockett, and another who thinks she may be a member of the famed Hatfield clan.
A Nashville resident seeks to untangle her family history, which may include a former president, a famous singer and a notorious criminal. And a heart-wrenching story about an unknown father becomes a heartwarming reunion for two long-lost cousins.
