Professional Genealogist in the News

I found it interesting in light of my more recent posts that there are other professional genealogists out there, who are actually called such and respected by the mainstream media.

Megan Smolenyak (her website), was on the NewsHour last night interviewing about Mrs. Obama’s slave ancestor. What was interesting was that the Obama family did not have anything much to say on the matter. I suppose there is the privacy issue of delving into the lives of high-profile people.
