Talk about timing being everything!
I hope that many of you have viewed the recent episode on NBC’s “Who Do You think You Are?” that featured the ancestral search by Jason Sudeikis of Saturday Night Live fame.
I had to do a double-take as I was watching the show because during the show who did I see make an onscreen appearance as one of the leading genealogy experts guiding Jason Sudeikis in his ancestral quest?
None other than our speaker for our own upcoming genealogy program on July 10, 2012, Jeanne Larzalere Bloom! How do you like that for a now famous on-screen genealogy star advisor! Look for Jeanne at about the 5 minute mark of the show meeting with Jason Sudeikis at the Chicago History Museum. She also has another meeting with Jason Sudeikis later in the program.
Jeanne will be making an appearance at our own library this upcoming July 10, 2012 to present her program titled “Hiring A Professional Genealogist”.
I did mention to Jeanne that I wished I had known of her upcoming appearance on the famous show so that I could have shared it with all of you in advance of the airing. However, Jeanne did indicate that she was under the strictest of a “confidentiality agreement” with NBC and was precluded from making it known to anyone that she would be on the show. And boy did Jeanne hold fast to that agreement by not sharing she would be seen on the show.
If you missed the original airing of the show with Jeanne and Jason Sudeikis, you can always see the show online via the NBC website. You can get to this show via the following link:
I feel so honored that we will have such a TV personality as Jeanne Larzalere Bloom make a presentation at our library. Again, timing is everything to have Jeanne at our library just a couple of months after her making such a memorable appearance on “Who Do You Think You Are?
Take a look at the show if you have not already seen it or even if you have revisit it again prior to seeing Jeanne in person at our own library on Tuesday evening, July 10, 2012.
I look forward to having our own star in person on that day!
