The show was started in order to share information with others who are interested in doing genealogy. We try to bring experts in various specialities to share their knowledge. Since most of us came from various parts of the world, a large number at the start of the last century, we share different difficulties in finding our ancestors. We discuss how to gather information from many of the countries of origin.
We started to place the video of some of the shows on the
internet. The shows that can be seen in their
entirely are marked with "VIEW NOW " symbols.
if you want us to email you when we add another show to the internet or
if you would like to get a show in DVD format.
(Notice: The server where these shows are now housed has added advertisements to the shows at the beginning of the show and in the middle. These are not endorsed by anyone having anything to do with the shows. We apologize for your need to be bothered with them.)
