The Genealogy Roadshow

Turtle Bunbury is heading on the road this summer as part of the Genealogy Roadshow‘s historical swat team. This pioneering new series is to be aired on Ireland’s RTE1 television channel in July and August. Every week, Turtle and his fellow sleuths, genealogists Nicola Morris and John Grenham, will meet members of the public at Roadshow events across Ireland and endeavour to work out who is related to someone famous or connected to a historical event. Perhaps they might even solve a family mystery or two along the way. The series will be hosted by Derek Mooney.
