New PBS show GENEALOGY ROADSHOW Taping in SF
Sunday, July 21, 2013 from 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, CA
Join KQED at the filming of a new PBS series in San Francisco: Part detective story, part emotional journey, Genealogy Roadshow will combine history and science to uncover the fascinating stories of diverse Americans. Each individual’s past will link to a larger community history, revealing the rich cultural tapestry of America.
This is a unique opportunity to go behind-the-scenes at a national television production at the historic Old Mint and hear inspiring and moving stories from Bay Area locals selected from thousands of submissions to be a part of the first season of this groundbreaking documentary series.
Expert genealogists will uncover rich and surprising history about the people and places that make up our incredibly diverse and fascinating country – and how San Francisco and the state of California offer unique local contributions.
The taping will be in three stages:
8:30am to 11:30am
12:30pm to 2:45pm
2:45pm to 5pm
Audience members can come and leave as they please, but we recommend staying through the end of each section. Please arrive early to be a part of the opening shot for the series.
