I hope you all were able to see the initial show of the new TV series titled "Who Do You Think You Are?". Sarah Jessica Parker was the celebrity whose genealogy was traced in the series opener. An earlier post to this Blog gives you the list of other celebs to be focused on in the coming weeks. The show appears at 8 pm on Fridays.
Less publicized is another television show on PBS, Wednesdays at 8 pm, titled “Faces of America.” It has been showing for some time now and features the Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates, Jr. as he reveals the interesting ancestry of 12 renowned Americans such as comedian Steven Colbert, actress Eva Longoria, musician Yo-Yo Ma, poet Elizabeth Alexander, and others.
