'WDYTYA?" Will Return to TLC in 2014
Posted by Diane

"Who Do You Think You Are?" watchers, rejoice—the genealogy series has been renewed for a second season TLC. The network has ordered 10 episodes, an increase over this season's eight.

The celebrities haven't been announced. Which celebrities would you like to see on "Who Do You Think You Are?" in 2014?

Last night's WDYTYA? season finale showed "Big Bang Theory" star Jim Parsons' search for his French roots in Louisiana and in France. Among his ancestors were a Medical College of Louisiana-trained physician and an architect to King Louis XV.

Don't be sad—your genealogy TV-watching isn't over for the year. We still have four episodes of the new series "Genealogy Roadshow" coming up on PBS, starting Monday, Sept. 23 at 9 p.m. It'll explore noncelebrities' family history claims and reveal the answers before a live audience.

As a suggestion for next year, Ben Roethlesberger, quarterback for the Pittsburg Steelers. His Swiss ancestors came from the same area of Switzerland as my wife's Burghalter ancestors, and two Roethlesberger girls married into the Burghalter line in the 1500s, according to research by Sue's recently deceased cousin in Atlanta. In the post-Super Bowl publicity about Ben his first year in the NFL, it was mentioned that he had spent some time researching his family and had gone to the Emmenthaller area to find more.

His family settled in Findlay, Ohio, and the Burghalters just across the Ohio-Indiana line between Berne and Geneva, Indiana.

It would be interesting to us, and possibly to a lot of football fans, to know more about that Swiss-American line.
