Every genealogy enthusiast is eagerly awaiting the return of the television series, Who Do You Think You Are?
The show features celebrities who, with the help of professional researchers, discover fascinating things about their ancestors. This year’s celebrities are Christina Applegate, Kelly Clarkson, Cindy Crawford, Zooey Deschanel, Chelsea Handler, Chris O’Donnell, Jim Parson and Trisha Yearwood.
Once aired by NBC and picked up by The Learning Channel, the eight new episodes will begin on Tuesday, July 23. Hopefully, TLC will air complete online episodes — as did NBC — for those who do not have cable.
In previous years the Georgia Archives has hosted Spike Lee and Paula Deen. In preparation for the upcoming season singers Kelly Clarkson and Trisha Yearwood spent time at the Archives. Yearwood, a Monticello native, discovered records at the Archives proving that she has Georgia ancestors dating back to the 1700s.
