Identity Quest genealogy reveals

With the help of the Topeka Genealogical Society and FamilySearch we delved into the past of seven community members to uncover information about their families. These seven people were selected from more than 25 applicants. KTWU filmed the reveals of these chosen guests and now it’s time to view those interviews!

Watch the reveals


Register to join our guests and researchers for pre-screenings of the reveals each Sunday before the public airings: April 16, May 14 and June 11.

The Identity Quest Genealogy Conference & Heritage Celebration was held November 2022. The event provided the Midwest with a host of heritage society exhibitors, genealogy speakers, and heritage music, dance and art.

As a veteran genealogist, I love teaching and sharing digital family history and genealogy techniques and helping people solve genealogy problems. Being the Genealogy Librarian at the Topeka and Shawnee County Public Library is so much fun! I work to promote a greater knowledge of family, history, and heritage.
