Genealogy Project for PBS Philadelphia


Do you have a unique story, question or interesting lore you want verified about your family history?

Are you related to a famous or infamous historical figure?

What have you heard? What do you want to know? What would uncovering this information mean to you, your family, your community, the Country?

Genealogy Roadshow is a detective story mixed with an emotional journey. This unique show combines history and science to uncover diverse, historical stories of the American experience.

Looking for Philadelphia residents (or within a 200 mile radius, must be willing to travel to Philadelphia for the shoot) with fascinating stories to explore and share their family’s history.

Our team of experts will reveal the cultural tapestry of the Philadelphia region. DNA experts use heirlooms, letters, pictures and historical documents to piece together clues of the past to unearth family and community secrets revealed on camera before a local audience.

The deadline for casting for the Philadelphia episode has been extended to the end of this month. So if you would like to submit your story, visit our website here: http://www.pbs.org/program/genealogy­roadshow/

This is a quick turnaround as we will probably be shooting in the beginning of October!
