Martha Stewart will be profiled this Sunday at 8pm on the PBS series “Finding Your Roots”. The host of the show, Henry Louis Gates, Jr. researches Martha’s genealogy and uncovers some interesting facts. Read more about the taping of the segment on Martha’s blog.
Says Martha on The Martha Blog:
“The Professor found it fascinating that many of my ancestors were domestic workers and craftsmen, such as ornamental ironworkers, basket makers, seamstresses, and farmers. Others were entrepreneurs, running a butcher shop, a delicatessen, and even a saloon. It’s clear to see that my genealogy has really formed who I am today.”
