Sunday, October 4 was an exciting day at the Providence Public Library, which hosted the taping of an episode of PBS’ Genealogy Roadshow, to be aired in 2016. Kenyatta D. Berry, Joshua Taylor and Mary Tedesco are the inspiring genealogists hosting the show.
Genealogy societies and local historical societies were welcome to exhibit in the main hall where the taping was done. So I represented the Federation of Genealogical Societies, an umbrella organization for the hundreds of genealogy societies around the country that do excellent work and are ready to help with questions. The FGS “Society Hall” webpage can help you find a local society in an area that you are currently researching.
The day began at 8:00 a.m. for set up. The crowds started moving in around 9 a.m. and never really stopped. Here are some pictures from this amazing day.
We talked genealogy all day long, and it was a blast!
