Faces of America with Henry Louis Gates, Jr. on PBS

Faces of America is a show about family histories and genealogy.  I really enjoyed the show last night.  My husband even sat down to watch it with me, and he is not a fan of my genealogy digging.  I hope everyone has a chance to watch this show.  Last night's episode is available to watch now at  www.pbs.org/wnet/facesofamerica.  The next program will be on PBS on February 17th.  I hope that everyone has a chance to see how genealogy and history help make us who we are today.

I did watch it, if the procces of how information was obtained was shown, it would have really made it more interesting and make it feel like you were watching a detective movie. But full marks to Hendry Gates Jr. for the effort, we appreciate it at least we are talking about it and having a conversation which is a good thing in my opinion

I agree for a genealogist or family historian. For a lay person it generates interest in both. Just sending a spark out to interest folks I think is great.
