And with that we’ve lined up quite a panel of guest stars to discuss how genealogy is making an impact on television as well as what is involved in searching for those rogues, rapscallions and rebels lurking in your own family tree. In addition, listeners will be asked to call in with their own stories of black sheep ancestors. First up will be popular writer, speaker and TV guest Megan Smolenyak2 to share with us some of her insights as to why genealogy has suddenly become popular among a variety of television programs.
