"Who Do You Think Are?" Returns Friday
Posted by jamie

The second season of "Who Do You Think You Are?" debuts Friday, and the first episode features Vanessa Williams exploring her father's ancestry.

Gwyneth Paltrow, Tim McGraw, Rosie O'Donnell, Steve Buscemi, Kim Cattrall, Lionel Richie and Ashley Judd will also add new branches to their family tree this season. Through these celebrities' ancestries, "WDYTYA?" will tell the stories of a slave liberator, a colonist, a bigamist, a miracle baby and a Civil War prisoner, to name a few.

Before you watch the show, check out our "WDYTYA?" episode one sneak peek, and our Q&A with Williams and show producer Lisa Kudrow. After the episodes, join the discussion on our "WDYTYA?" forum.

"WDYTYA?" premieres Friday, Feb. 4, at 8 p.m. EST on NBC. Check the Genealogy Insider blog for a brief recap of each episode.

Someone should educate Lisa Kudrow about genealogy research before she appears on TV shows hyping the show. Recently, on the Today show, she said that if you're Jewish and Polish, forget about getting records from Poland before WWII! That's ridiculous. There's a ton of records available from Poland. I have some myself. She also advised beginners to start with Ancestry (understandable since they're her sponsor) but that's not REALLY where to start - start with building a tree and interviewing relatives. Because she's so high profile, her misinformation will spread to newbies and we'll have to work hard to undo it.
