GENEALOGIST, JOSHUA TAYLOR - PBS’ “GENEALOGY ROADSHOW” SEASON THREE UNCOVERS FAMILY SECRETS ACROSS THE U.S.
Six New Cities Featured as Local Citizens’ Lineage is Traced to the Past
Part detective story, part emotional journey, Genealogy Roadshow combines history and science to uncover fascinating stories of diverse Americans this season in and around Albuquerque, Miami, Houston, Boston, Providence and Los Angeles. Each story links to the larger regional and often, national history, to become part of America’s rich cultural tapestry.
Genealogy Roadshow brings together genealogists Kenyatta Berry, Joshua Taylor and Mary Tedesco with everyday people whose unique family claims form the basis for significant ROADSHOW stories. Among this season’s mysteries: A man seeks to find out if he is descended from Boston’s key founders; a woman explores connections to an ancestor’s participation in the Manhattan Project; a couple hopes to recover the true story of their family pharmacy during Hollywood’s Golden Age; and a woman learns of her family’s involvement in the Trail of Tears.
The genealogists used resources in history and DNA as well as family heirlooms, letters, pictures, historical documents and other clues to hunt down the truth behind the familial myths. In each episode, Genealogy Roadshow reaches out to help Americans who are interested in their family heritage and their community history. It proves that no matter one’s culture and background, everyone is part of the American story.
