TODAY Show News and a Big Reveal

Well, it's been an amazing week! On Monday, Today show co-host Meredith Vieira said a big thank you for the research I did on her family. Each day of this week, the co-hosts explored their roots. Today, the show touched on how folks can pursue their own roots search. The producers asked me to the guest for that segment! If you missed my briefly explaining how you can use Ancestry.com, Footnote.com, FamilySearch.com and DeadFred.com don't worry, you should be able to see it this afternoon on the web. The genealogy features were so popular that the TODAY show asked for emails from viewers and had me stay for a second segment in the third hour. How fun! At the end of the first segment I told my big secret...I'm working on a Photo Detective project with the History Channel. It's a dream come true! It will air later this year on History.com. Watch that site and this blog for further details.

Maureen, I enjoyed your segment on the Today Show this morning. Very informative for those just getting in to genealogy. I love the fact that you are a picture detective. I am a photographer and also do genealogy, so I get where you come from! I have rescued portraits through the years and have wondered who they are. Maybe I will get motivated some day and do some detective work of my own!
