A new “reality” series is coming to BYU Television. The series starts on January 11, 2010 and is titled “The Generations Project.” The following description is from the website:
The Generations Project is a new reality series that helps those who have questions about their family history investigate their own identities by walking in the shoes of their ancestors. As they undertake these journeys, they often uncover the hidden identities in family pasts, and come to see that in many cases the best way to know who you are is to know who you came from.
