Hey cousins! So...barring any breaking news, Good Morning America will run its piece on the GFR tomorrow/today (Tuesday), along with an online article.
The producers have assured me that there is a link to WikiTree online, so that's good! I haven't seen the video piece, so I don't know how much coverage there is of WikiTree in the actual segment.
I'll send a link to the video and online piece as soon as I get em!
GMA is also putting the image that Niels made up on the ABC site. I believe it is going to be credited to "Niels Hansen and the researchers at WikiTree and Geni." (Since some of the info came from Geni, I felt I should include them).
As for how much of the image they will put up, well, that's a mystery to me. The producer called me this afternoon and said some anchors, like George Stephanopolous, like the idea of having their tree up.
BUT...the producers apparently didn't check with the other anchors until today. Oy! As my people say, oy oy oy. Turns out a couple of the women are worried about privacy issues. She wouldn't tell me which ones.
The producer working on them, but she said, very apologetically, that she may have to cut a couple of the anchors out of the image.
She was very sorry and appreciative of all the hard work you guys did. And I'm sorry too! I wish they had checked with the anchors earlier.
In any case, I'm crossing my all ten of my fingers that it'll be a good segment and get a whole host of new people interested in genealogy. I think it will!
Thanks and thanks again for everything
Your cousin, AJ
