Roots Television to Continue

Here's more good news for genealogists. Roots Television, which had been scheduled to close on March 10th, will continue.

According to Megan Smolenyek, the person behind the Roots Televison website, a flood of e-mail and tweet messages have persuaded her to keep the site going. She will be soliciting advertising support to help cover costs, but will continue to host the site. Here's a snippet of the comments that Megan has posted on the Roots Televison page:

"I honestly had no clue how valued it was by the genealogical community, and I agree with the many of you who pointed out that it serves a somewhat different purpose than the prime time programming that’s on TV at present (much as I’ve been enjoying that!)."
