"Who Do You Think You Are?" with a Missouri Connection Debuts Wednesday

In the last issue of News 'n Notes, we mentioned that the new season of Who Do You Think You Are? starts on Wednesday, 23 July on TLC. What we did not know at the time is this season debut also features the Missouri State Archives and actress Cynthia Nixon's connection to Missouri.

In a press release last week, the Archives shared, "The Friends of the Missouri State Archives are excited to announce the Archives’ involvement in the season premiere of TLC’s Who Do You Think You Are? The episode features Cynthia Nixon, best known for her role as Miranda Hobbes in Sex in the City, as she 'meets an ancestor forced to use the most extreme measures to stay alive.' Archives staff helped gather historic records and provided a venue for the episode’s filming."

You can watch this hour-long look into Ms. Nixon's ancestry on TLC, Wednesday, 23 July, from 8 to 9 p.m. Or check out http://www.tlc.com/tv-shows/who-do-you-think-you-are for online viewing.
