Among the celebrities to be featured are Matthew Broderick, Lisa Kudrow, Spike Lee, Sarah Jessica Parker, Susan Sarandon, Brooke Shields and Emmitt Smith.

  1. Lets not just do celb's. Regular people are interesting too! I have relatives that were Lt. governor of Pa. and a way back one that wrote the Declaration of Independence. This means he did the penmanship that you see on the paper. I think they called those people an engrosser.
    Thanks for listening,

  2. Gary, I absolutely agree. As I talk to people about genealogy, I tell them that EVERY family has important and interesting stories that need to be preserved and re-told!
