For those in the broadcast range of Ontario and are able to view TVO, there
is a special History piece on genealogy this evening Feb 1 at 9 p.m. local
time  entitled

*Data Mining the Deceased*
The description is as follows:

*More than half of North Americans are fascinated by genealogy and invested
in their family histories. The emotional impact of uncovering one's
ancestors, culture and country of origin can be profound, but there is
another side to the rise in genealogy that goes beyond human interest. This
documentary explores what may be the largest historical enterprise in the
world, and one of the largest data-mining operations, and how it is driven
by big religion, big technology and big business.*
It will be repeated at midnight (12 a.m.)

Once broadcast, it will probably be avlb in their archives on their
website   www.tvo.org
