HSP's Senior Director of the Library and Collections Lee Arnold and Assistant Director of Research Services Sarah Heim were recently interviewed by Philadelphia's WHYY TV in support of the PBS show, "Finding Your Roots with Henry Louis Gates, Jr."

Lee discusses the importance of original documents, and what to do if you hit a dead end, while Sarah gives some tips for deciphering old handwriting, among other topics.

WHYY also filmed genealogist Brian Geverd as he researched his family's history here at HSP. Geverd's experience, as well as the interviews with HSP's Arnold and Heim, are all available for viewing here.
