The success of Who Do You Think You Are was hammered home last week when I saw a story on the Library of Virginia from NBC12, our local affliate. They did a short sequence on a local politician who was trying to trace a slave ancestor and how she used the repository. All in all, I thought it was a decent, very short introduction to the genealogical resources at the Library of Virginia. I was happy that they mentioned this politician has been tracing her family tree for almost 30 years and that it can be a long and frustrating process. My one quibble with WDYTYA is that they make the process look so “easy”. I type in a name and ‘boom’ your whole tree is there and a professional pops out of your screen and takes you to the right place. But I digress… The link to the story is here.
