Apparently, Ancestry.com has totally missed the 18-49 demographic it was aiming for and WDYTYA? was cancelled for 2013. Am I surprised? No. I spent part of this year trying to figure out who some of these most "beloved" celebrities were.
The main problem with WDYTYA? is that they made it look too easy. Genealogy, at least for those of us who started with a roll of microfilm combing census records, vital records and newspapers, or haunting county courthouses hoping for a glimpse of great-great-great grandma and grandpa's marriage record, is truly very hard work. Most of us do not have the luxury of having someone else research for us or hopping on a plane to find our roots in Europe, Asia, or Africa.
So, I will watch the Paula Deen episode, if for no other reason to sling insults at her for ignoring her diabetes and continuing her unhealthy way of cooking!
