      Hi everyone,

      Don't Miss WDYTYA tonight with Emmit Smith!

      I hope you all have your tv sets tuned to Who Do You Think
      You Are. It starts in just less than 2 hours for me and I
      can't wait!

      The tune-in numbers for the first episode of Who Do You
      Think You Are? are in, and they look promising! More than
      6.85 million viewers tuned in to watch the show making it
      the No. 2-rated show that hour.

      This Friday Emmitt Smith This week's episode is one you
      don't want to miss. Tune into NBC this Friday at 8/7c as
      former NFL football player Emmitt Smith sets out to
      discover his slavery roots. In this episode, look for the
      Monroe County Courthouse in Monroe County, Alabama, and the
      Mecklenburg County Courthouse in Mecklenburg County,
      Virginia. Lisa Kudrow calls Emmitt's episode "unbelievable"
      and the most compelling of the seven.

      Last Week's Episode featured Sarah Jessica Parker, who
      learns that her 4th great-grandfather John S. Hodge was
      among the hundreds of thousands who tried to strike it rich
      by heading West during the 1849 California Gold Rush.

      Check out the teaser to the episode featuring Emmitt or
      last week's episode with Sarah Jessica Parker at NBC unless
      you live in Canada in which case you cannot view these
      online NBC videos.

      Carnival of African-American Genealogy: Slaves & Slave


      I wanted to join in this first Carnival for African-
      American genealogy for two reasons. First, I am the
      descendant of slave owners. My husband is almost certainly
      the descendant of slaves. It's an uncomfortable position
      for me even though I know logically and intellectually that
      I am not responsible for my ancestors actions.
