Who do you think you are? TV show about family history starts on NBC

I was in an airplane on Tuesday and that's how I came to be watching Oprah.

And, good thing, because that's how I found out the BBC show Who do you think you are?, which has had a British version and a Canadian one already, is now getting an American version too.

I'll be watching tonight and thinking of all the stories behind the names we see every day and never think about: names of streets, schools, hospitals; names on monuments and plaques;  names in phone books and company directories; it never ends.

Ancestry.com is all over this.  I've been using Ancestry for several years.  My Christmas present to myself is the deluxe annual membership.

I know that watching Who do you think you are? is just going to make me want to do more research.
