Genea-blogger colleague Bill West chimed in on the scheduling delay in the US-version of "Who Do You Think You Are?" and provided ideas for additional genealogy-related shows.
Here are Bill's ideas, followed by mine. Anyone else have gen-related program ideas?
1. "I'm a Genealogist, Get Me Out of Here? - The adventures of five researchers stranded in the Library of Congress. [Note from Schelly: But would we really want to leave? This takes it from the reality genre to the fantasy. Don't we all want to be locked into a library? Or is it just me?]
2. "Genealogy Medium" - Examines the genealogy of the ghosts that Alison DuBois talks with.
3. "Last Gedcom Standing" - Teams of genealogists examine family trees looking for errors.
I'm adding these:
4. "Lost" - Drop teams of genealogists (without language skills) in an unknown international location and ask them to find the family history of a certain family from that location within a set time frame. The first team to complete the task wins either a lot of cash or subscriptions to all the paid-access databases!
And for kids:
5. "Where in the World is Waldo's Family?" - Kids find clues to family history in this animated show.
Okay, time for your ideas!
