Diane Rapaport on the BBC’s Who Do You Think You Are?.

Recently Diane appeared on the BBC series, Who Do You Think You Are? , with British television celebrity Richard Madeley. As a research consultant for the show, Diane was filmed with Madeley at the Massachusetts Archives in Boston, where she told him the surprising news that he had colonial American roots, back to the earliest settlers of 17th-century New England. Diane showed Madeley a petition signed in 1650 by his ancestor Anne Beamsley Woodward with nearly 200 other Massachusetts women—the first organized women’s political protest in American history—which obtained the release from prison of a midwife they believed had been wrongly convicted. Madeley also learned that Anne’s husband, Ezekiel Woodward, was a sergeant in the colonial militia during King Philip’s War at the Great Swamp Fight of 1675. This television episode, which aired in the UK on September 28, 2011, is not scheduled for release in the U.S., but a DVD of the series should be available for purchase from the BBC in a few months.
