See the Results of the Annie Moore Contest on RootsTelevision

Most of you may recall a while back we ran a blurb about a contest, sponsored by Megan Smolenyak Smolenyak, seeking the identity of the real Annie Moore of Ellis Island fame.  Early in September they announced that she had been found.  The success was announced at a press conference in New York City, attended by some of Annie’s descendants. Now you can watch how they uncovered her real story and view the press conference online at RootsTelevision. Just go to the RootsTelevision website ( and it’s currently on the home page. (If it’s been bumped from the home page by the time you read this, click on the Homeland tab and you’ll find it there.) 

Oh, and a word to the sentimental folks like me out there, keep a box of tissues handy!

Also, for those who like to check in on Megan’s Roots World blog, she’s moving it to the RootsTelevision website and you can read her at:

Enjoy your weekend!
