PBS’ ‘Genealogy Roadshow’ Plans New Orleans Tapings Saturday and Sunday (Sept. 6-7)
The following announcement was written by PBS:
PBS’ “Genealogy Roadshow” will record episodes in New Orleans on Saturday and Sunday (Sept. 6-7), and the public is invited to attend. The tapings, at which pre-selected locals will have their family mysteries explored by show genealogists Kenyatta D. Berry, Joshua Taylor and Mary Tedesco, are free.
Attendees can meet with representatives of local historical and genealogical societies during the tapings, which will be held at the New Orleans Board of Trade and The Cabildo.
The tapings will take place from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day (lines form at 8 a.m.). Attendees may stay for the whole day, but will not be required to. No pre-registration is necessary.
“New Orleans is a natural fit for ‘Genealogy Roadshow,'” said Stuart Krasnow, executive producer, in a news release. “The city’s southern hospitality and rich historical roots date back to its dominance as a shipping port, and to the oil refining and petrochemical production industry that brought newcomers to the city.”
