Just wanted to let you all know that the CBC T.V.
is going to run a 13 part series starting Thursday, October 11 at 7:30 p.m.
entitled "Who Do You Think You Are?" The series will be following Canadian
celebrities as they discover the truth behind a family legend. Each show
will be one half hour in length. The show was designed to give people a
different look at Canadian history and to inspire Canadians to delve into their
own genealogical backgrounds. The series will have a webiste where fans
can explore the ancestry of the Canadians show-cased in the series. Each
celebrity will have their own page, with a summary of the shows findings, the
research methods and documents used, as well as any links to other websites that
may prove helpful to interested genealogists. There are also plans to
provide a suite of easy-to-use tools that will allow people to research and
build their own genealogical collections.
This was noted in Family Chronicle magazine
(October issue) which I get.
