The Genealogy Roadshow is a four-part Irish genealogy television series which aired on RTÉ One on Sunday evenings at 6:30pm. It was created by Big Mountain Productions and presented by Derek Mooney. Each episode was recorded on the road in Kildare, Meath, Limerick and Galway in May and June 2011, before broadcasting commenced that August.
The Genealogy Roadshow put three questions to viewers and then set out to answer them.
Do you believe you are related to someone famous? Is your family connected to a major historical event? Do you need to solve a family mystery?
