PBS series ‘Genealogy Roadshow’ to film in Detroit

DETROIT (AP) — A new PBS series is set to film at a home in an historic Detroit neighborhood.

The taping for “Genealogy Roadshow” is to take place Sunday in Indian Village.

The show is to premiere nationally this fall.

Described as part detective story, part emotional journey, “Genealogy Roadshow” combines history and science to uncover Americans’ family stories.

The show’s first season is to feature participants from Detroit; Nashville, Tenn.; Austin, Texas; and San Francisco.

One of the genealogists featured in the show is from Detroit.

Kenyatta Berry graduated from Cass Technical High School, Michigan State University and Thomas M. Cooley Law School. She is president of the Association of Professional Genealogists.
