WDYTYA in Brooklyn!

This morning, I got an e-mail from the Brooklyn Historical Society, which will be featured on tonight's episode of Who Do You Think You Are? Tonight's episode explores Rosie O'Donnell's history. I hadn't realized it would involve Brooklyn! Just last week, I thought to myself "I wish they'd do an episode with NYC ancestors. I bet I'd be exposed to some resources I'm unfamiliar with." Ask and ye shall receive!

According to both the e-mail and the BHS website,

BHS will be featured in an episode of the popular NBC program "Who Do You Think You Are?" this Friday, February 18 at 8:00 p.m.The episode will feature actress, singer, author and media personality Rosie O'Donnell on her quest to learnmore about her family history. Mark your calendar and set your DVR. You don't want to miss this!
Interested in doing your own family history research? BHS' Othmer Library and Archival collections contain many resources for those interested in genealogy and family history research. Click here for a detailed listing of our resources that are most frequently consulted by genealogists and family historians. You can also download a pdf guide to Brooklyn related genealogy resources at both BHS and other libraries here.

I'm so psyched! Unfortunately, I'll be in the car tonight when WDYTYA is on. Is there a protocol for the excitedly live-blogging shows while you watch them tomorrow morning on Hulu?
