Genealogy Roadshow is structurally similar to Antiques Roadshow and is modeled after an Irish TV program of the same name which is in its second season in Ireland on RTE Television. San Francisco residents already mentioned as being featured in various episodes include Jamie O’Keefe, Cecilia Chen, and Lisa Gates. I think the investigation of Cecilia Chen's ancestry should be particularly interesting for those of us who have not researched Chinese ancestry.
The program will feature genealogical authors, lecturers and researchers Joshua Taylor and Kenyatta Berry as the show’s on-air experts. Los Angeles-area broadcaster Emmett Miller has been named as the host of the series.
