Go Behind the Scenes As Genealogist Searches for Next-of-Kin
Posted by Diane
has launched a new show about the role genealogists can play in finding the families of unclaimed bodies at morgues across the United States.
“Unclaimed Persons” is a genealogical "CSI." It follows professional researcher Megan Smolenyak Smolenyak’s work on the case of one deceased man, presenting clues through interviews with his acquaintances and coroner’s office staff. No plot spoilers here; you’ll have to see for yourself how it ends.
A separate video gives more information on Smolenyak’s research.
"Unclaimed Persons" also shows you the beginning of another case you might be able to help solve—and maybe we’ll see how that one ends in a future episode.
