Disney Gets in on Genealogy with My Family Tree Series

disney channel

It appears that the Disney Channel has been taping for a new show entitled “My Family Tree” which hopes to combine geography and genealogy by having children from around the world report on their ancestors and family roots.

The series is set to premiere in November 2010 and one of the first episodes will depict Elbridge Gerry, a signer of the Declaration of Independence and the fifth Vice President of the United States as reported by one of his descendants, 12-year old Noah Gerry.

Stay tuned, as they say, because this may be just the first in a variety of media offerings for children that involve genealogy.
