Genealogy Roadshow: Season 2 continues tonight at 8 p.m. on PBS stations.
The program stars genealogists Kenyatta D. Berry, Joshua Taylor and Mary Tedesco and features participants from New Orleans, St. Louis and Philadelphia. Over the course of the series, Berry, Taylor and Tedesco work with participants’ anecdotal clues, documents and family heirlooms to unite them with histories and people they never knew existed.
Tonight’s episode takes place in Philadelphia. A man learns that the event that drove his family to the City of Brotherly Love changed the course of history; a man may be a Viking descendant; another’s family could have part of one of history’s biggest scams; a young man hopes to confirm his relation to a signer of the Declaration of Independence; and two sisters learn their ancestors were part of the great Irish migration.
