We can't help but compare today's media attention to that following the record-setting book and television mini-series, Roots.
Alex Haley's book was published in 1976, and the mini-series followed the next year. How did these events affect you and or your genealogical research? Tell us about your reaction in 100 words or less.
The best responses will be published in the Summer 2010 issue of The Searcher.
The Searcher will be distributed to all Jamboree attendees, including Chris Haley, Alex Haley's nephew, who will be the keynote speaker at the Jamboree banquet on Friday.
Send your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 21 in order to be considered for publication.
