PBS has announced their line up for 2012. (Not sure how I missed this announcement.) It is exciting to see that genealogy stays in the forefront of television networks. Finding Your Roots begins March 25 at 8 p.m., Henry Louis Gates, Jr. will dig into the genetics and genealogy in a 10 part series. According to the PBS announcement, “Kevin Bacon, Tyra Banks, Robert Downey, Jr., Sanjay Gupta, John Legend, Martha Stewart, Barbara Walters and Rick Warren” will be lucky enough to have their genealogy completed for them. To read more about Finding Your Roots, please go to the PBS website.
