NBC has announced that Ashley Judd, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kim Cattrall, Lionel Richie, Rosie O'Donnell, Steve Buscemi, Tim McGraw and Vanessa Williams will be featured in the 2011 season of Who Do You Think You Are (WDYTYA). In case you missed the 2010 inaugural season, each week a celebrity is featured. The person goes on a journey back in time as his or her family history is discovered. More information can be found at NBC News.
The second season will begin airing on Friday, February 4th at 8:00 PM (7:00 PM Central). To review the shows from season one go to the show's website. Much of the research for the stories of the stars is provided by principal corporate sponsor Ancestry.com. As many of you know, family histories are not uncovered as easily as it may seem on TV. Ancestry has estimated that that each episode in the 2010 season required from 400 to 700 hours of researcher time.
