Check out this show: Are You Smarter Than A Gradeschool Genealogist?.
Visit this great new site at Roots Television!
Roots Television is a great site that is excellent for genealogist. I am really excited because I can not always travel to the genealogy conferences. Some of the programs you can watch are taken from the genealogy seminars. Here is their introduction as written on their site:
“Well, now there’s a channel for us. Roots Television™ is by and for avid genealogists and family history lovers of all stripes. Whether you’re an archives hound, a scrapbooker, a cousin collector, a roots-travel enthusiast, a Civil War re-enactor, a DNA fan, a reunion instigator, a sepia-toned photos zealot, an Internet-junkie, a history buff, an old country traditions follower, a cemetery devotee, a story-teller, a multicultural food aficionado, a flea market and antiques fanatic, a family documentarian, a nostalgia nut, or a mystery-solver, Roots Television™ has something for you -- and that “something” is quality programming.”
Some of the topics they presently have are DNA, Homeland, How To, Legacy, Civil War and much more. Presently this site is FREE of charge. They may, in the future, show “special” programs that will have a charge, but for now, it is all FREE!
Roots Television also has a Blog site which will be online columns. A new aspect at this site is Vlogs. While a Blog is like an online journal, a vlog is similar but in video form. One vlog I recently watched is “Family Craft Ideas for Thanksgiving.” Another one is called “Your Ancestors Are Watching You.”
They have a cool shop to buy books, DVD or videos, and Roots gear. Their t-shirts are really great. They sell the set of Roots, Civil War and Ancestors in their shop.
