We’ve been proclaiming the cool-factor of genealogy for a long time. So we were really excited to hear that we’d be airing A Celebration of Family History in November. (Click here for airtimes or watch the full program on-demand below.)

This is an incredible night of music, stories, and celebrity guest speeches, all celebrating the way family history is an important and inspiring practice.

In particular, look out for an address by David McCullough, the Pulitzer Prize–winning author (he wrote the incredibly successful John Adams biography), and President Henry B. Eyring. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir will be the musical backdrop to the night, singing original pieces and fan favorites.

This broadcast event is part of the National Genealogical Society Conference, an annual gathering that highlights the way that family history is impacting lives for good. A DVD of the show is available for around $5 through FamilySearch.

Get inspired by joining BYUtv for this once-in-a-lifetime genealogical event starting.

And while we’re on the topic of great family history programs, have you seen the reality/genealogy series The Generations Project? It follows regular people as they start the investigative process of understanding their ancestors, with the aid of genealogy pros. It’s a really interesting and emotional show, and we’d love to hear what you think of it. Watch episodes here.
