New Season of Who Do You Think You Are? Coming

Exciting!  TLC will be showing a new season of Who Do You Think You Are? starting next month.  The premier is scheduled for the night of Sunday, March 5, at 10/9c.  According to the announcement at Eastman’s Online Genealogy Newsletter, citing TLC, the celebrities in this season include:

  • Jessica Biel
  • Julie Bowen
  • Courteney Cox
  • Jennifer Grey
  • Smokey Robinson
  • John Stamos
  • Liv Tyler
  • Noah Wyle

I have to admit that I generally prefer the format of Finding Your Roots where a genealogist presents the celebrity with information rather than the illusion that a celebrity can easily go to a few locations and find out their most interesting family details.  That said, I appreciate seeing how the celebrities are touched by their family stories, seeing visits to archives, and I hope that the public can continue to be inspired by the stories they see here to then learn about their own families. So put it on your calendar, and happy viewing!
