Roots TV: Jewish content

Og of the Roots Television blog says he's getting in the mood for Chicago 2008 and is pointing to the Jewish Roots Channel.

I met up with those "two chicks and a channel" - Megan Smolyanek Smolyanek and Marcy Brown of Roots Television - at the Southern California Jamboree in June.

Matthew Poe - a young man who stopped by the booth to ask some questions - was immediately put to work interviewing attendees and speakers. Marcy and Megan should put him on the permanent staff - he's a natural. I really enjoyed my little interview with him about Tracing the Tribe, blogging and how I got started.

Other Jewish content includes some video interviews from last year's Salt Lake City 2007 Jewish genealogy conference: Elise Friedman on Family Tree DNA, and Alexander Avraham, Yad Vashem's Hall of Names director.

There's more: interviews with Ron Arons, author of The Jews of Sing Sing, and Joyce Antler, with the history of the Jewish mother in You Never Call, You Never Write.
