Genealogy is now officially a TV genre. I felt confident in making this claim, the frequency with which I am approached by producers about forthcoming shows. I generally do my best to help because I have a conspicuous bias: I’d like to see as much genealogy on air as possible.

But yesterday I received an inquiry that made me check the calendar to be sure it was 2016.

It only took about two decades, but this genie’s wish has finally been granted: genealogy is now officially its own TV genre.
