Comment on New Genealogy Roadshow Program

Very light on substance – more or less provides conclusions to research that takes place off-show. In several cases conclusion as simple as “you are not related to this person”. Participants pre-submit information and it is generally presented at location of televised show. Show format seems to drive level of information provided. Not much opportunity for learning about genealogical research, even for beginners.
