Michelle Obama's Roots

I know that Michelle Obama has nothing to do with New Mexico genealogy, but as genealogists, I feel that we often have an interest in the roots of famous people - especially that of the First Family.

The author of this video, (or as she calls it, "a glorified Power Point presentation") Megan Smolenyak Smolenyak is a genealogist who works for Ancestry.com. Her research is very thorough, and always very interesting.

To see Smolenyak briefly discussing Michelle Obama's ancestry on the CBS Early Show, click on this link.
