Gen blogger Randy Seaver's newest posting asks about genealogist characters in film.
One reader noted a recent Simpsons' episode that had Lisa doing a family tree homework assignment.
-James Bond (George Lazenby) in On Her Majesties Secret Service (1969) played a stuffy genealogist who was overwhelmed by the ladies in the villain's Swiss chalet.
-Strega in Amore (Italian, DVD in 2005). A romantic horror movie, in which a family hires a genealogist to help them assemble the late patriarch's papers. While there, the researcher falls in love with the daughter.
Seaver also points to an Ancestry article on movies and TV shows covering family history in some ways. Click here for some lists which, of course, include Yentl, Fiddler on the Roof and more general titles.
Of course, Tracing the Tribe could add Everything is Illuminated and others. Post your favorites for our own Jewish genealogy short list.
