Saturday, November 16 from 10:30 am to noon. 

Guest Speaker: Dave Lossos, a St. Louis genealogist, will present a slide show of "behind the scenes" on Who Do You Think You Are? The shots that he took during the filming, and an airing of about twenty-five minutes of the TV show itself, that being the part shot in St. Louis. An episode of “Who Do You Think You Are?” was filmed in St. Louis in 2009.

Lossos was recruited by the Irish affiliate of WDYTYA to perform research on a set of brothers that had emigrated from Ireland and settled here in St. Louis, Missouri. With a relatively common Irish name, there were a few false starts until the correct family was found. The final outcome was that all the requisite details needed to get a go-ahead for filming of this particular one hour show was accomplished.


The event is co-sponsored by the Jefferson County Genealogical Society. Registration is not required.
