|The San Francisco "studio" was in the Old Mint.|
I scored a ticket to the taping of the new PBS series Genealogy Roadshow in San Francisco this summer at the Old Mint (thank you, Wendy!) and was able to watch two segments being filmed – one hosted by Kenyatta Berry and one with Josh Taylor.

The American version of Roadshow was taped in four cities on four consecutive Sundays. Participants were selected in advance from applicants who submitted their questions using an online form. This gave researchers time to do the digging necessary to answer the questions posed by the "winning" applicants.

The series will air on Monday nights on following schedule:
- September 23, 2013 – Nashville
- September 30, 2013 – Detroit
- October 7, 2013 – San Francisco
- October 14, 2013 – Austin
Much more about the taping was revealed in the July 25, 2013, San Francisco Chronicle article by Katharine Schwab. [Access may be limited to subscription holders.]
