Information about the new show to air was found on the blog at SFGate.com. The new PBS show will begin filming and airing in San Fransico. Here is and excerpt from the articles:
PBS and KQED, the Bay Area’s public media outlet, are teaming up to create a new TV series combining the proven popularity of “Antiques Roadshow” with the ongoing interest in family history. “Genealogy Roadshow” will begin filming in the Bay Area on July 21, and premier nationally this fall on PBS.
The series will focus initially on families in four U.S. cities— San Francisco, Detroit, Nashville and Austin. Residents who think they have “a historically significant story in their family” will bring the story to the producers. If chosen, the stories will then be researched by local experts in history and genealogy, much like the antiques experts who evaluate everything from Tiffany lamps to yard sale junk on “Antiques Roadshow.”
The results of the research, which may include previously unknown secrets and details, will be revealed to the participating families live on camera before local audiences.
