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!)."
