It's Friday! And that means another episode of the hit NBC genealogy show, Who Do You Think You Are (WDYTYA).
Tonight's episode features Kim Cattrall in a search for the grandfather who abandoned his family. This episode first aired in the BBC version of the series. Watch a preview here. The show airs at 8:00 p.m. EST and 7:00 p.m. Central.
You can chat along with the first airing of the show on Twitter using the hashtag #wdytya. If you live in the Mountain and Pacific time zones and don't want any spoilers, I suggest you avoid Twitter and Facebook until the show airs in your area! The tweeters get pretty excited during the online viewing party.
Live Viewing Party on Twitter
Last week, Rosie O'Donnell live tweeted throughout the broadcast, although she was not using the #wdytya hashtag. If you don't quite have the hang of Twitter (I have a love/hate relationship with the little blue bird), I recommend the free software, TweetDeck. It makes keeping track of multiple "conversations" much easier. This software also provides several shortcuts for replying, responding to and re-tweeting messages as well as providing a one-click method for inserting those hashtags.
Here's where you can find me on Twitter.
Then you will definitely want to stick around for the fourth episode of Geneablogger Radio, hosted by the chief geneablogger, Thomas MacEntee. Topics for this call-in web-based radio show will be tonight's episode of WDYTYA, webinars, genealogy news and some door prizes as Thomas divests himself of some of the conference swag he picked up at the Roots Tech conference last weekend. You can listen to the radio show and join the chat room by following this link. If you happen to miss the show, you can listen to a repeat performance later by following the same link.
See you tonight!
