The End of Roots TV

Hello All -

Just read on Dick Eastman's blog that Roots Television is coming to an end. You can read his post here: http://blog.eogn.com/eastmans_online_genealogy/2010/02/the-end-of-rootstelevisioncom.html#more

It will be very sad to have it come to an end. It provided many great videos for genealogy. I enjoyed watching the interviews that folks like Dick Eastman would provide during the various genealogy conferences and other events. Even with the up tick in tv programs involving family history such as Who Do You Think You Are and Faces of America, etc. there is still a need for a place for people to put their own video creations online for other to learn and enjoy.

However, on the positive side, there are still places like You Tube that can sort of fill the gap in the loss of Roots TV. I hope that those who have been posting videos to Roots TV in the past will not give up on doing so. Roots TV was a great idea, and it will be greatly missed.
