If you love watching this new show, Who Do You Think You Are, as much as I do, you might be interested in starting to research your family tree. But first, if you missed an episode or just want to rewatch a favorite, don’t forget that you can watch them online at NBC.com or Hulu.com.
Finished? There are many places online that can help you get started with your research. Cyndi’s List is one place to bookmark because she has done a lot of bookmarking for you already. There is a beginner section to get you started, but spend some time exploring while you are there. Family Tree Magazine also has great information for someone starting out.
Of course there is information related to the show. I saw this great blog posting from Ancestry.com with Seven Great Lessons from the show. And Megan Smolenyak, who was one of the genealogy researchers for the show, has published a book for beginners, which is available at the library! Of course, the library is also a great place to find more books on genealogy as well as using the Library Edition of Ancestry.com, who sponsored the show.
If you have already started your family tree, go ahead and leave a comment mentioning your favorite genealogy site!
