If you think there are only two genealogy-related television programs available or soon-to-be available, then put down your clicker and listen up!
The Generations Project is a series produced by BYU Television and each episdoe profiles the ancestry of everyday folks like you and me. I just watched my first episode this week and it was excellent!
In the episode, Danielle Jones, a young African-American woman studying to become a lawyer is able to connect across the generations with an ancestor who was an emancipated slave. The journey starts with her great-grandfather in Ohio and then travels to the Jamestown Plantation area in Virginia.
Below is a link to the full episode which will remain online until Monday, February 22, 2010. Also, you can catch the Danielle Jones episode rebroadcast at 6pm MST this coming Monday and a new episode will be broadcast that same evening at 8pm MST.
