NBC Today Show: family history of Meredith Vieira

The NBC TODAY show this morning featured a family history segment where host Meredith Vieira took a trip to her ancestral homeland - the Azores. She has Portuguese and Flemish speaking roots.

CONGRATS to Maureen Taylor, mentioned as "the genealogist" and mentioned for providing research. It was a fun segment, plutting a beautiful face on the oft mysterious world of genealogy.

Watch the video of the segment and feel inspired as Meredith locates and tours three old family homes, and suprisingly finds an old abandoned trunk with the return address of her father’s former place of business. Merideth also learns she has been mis-pronouncing her name all these years!

Happy family tree climbing!
