It is a little different than Dr. Gates' later programs, Finding Your Roots, African American Lives 1 & 2 or the NBC show, Who Do You Think You Are? Instead of concentrating on one guest at a time, Dr. Gates weaves the commonalities of the ancestral record together to fit into themes. It might take a little getting used to if you have watched the other shows first, but it is equally interesting and engaging and you won't be able to stop to until you have watched them all. He has the most amazing array of guests and I love it when he shows them something unexpected. Understanding the lives of our ancestors really does illustrate how much we all have in common. Bravo!

Great stories about the genealogies of some of our iconic celebrities. Touching, funny, sad, fascinating tales that highlight both US and world history through these lives. Henry Louis Gates, Jr is an excellent host who leads each person through discovering their family history with humor and understanding.

Well made and informative, but also very touching when the guests learn about their ancestors. Very moving.

I always enjoy any of the programs Henry Louis Gates produces. Faces of America is very informative and worth watching!

I thought this was going to be a show about a bunch of different faces. You know, JUST faces. Surprisingly, it was a genealogy show about American immigrants...I watched it anyway.

I guess you have to be an ancestry buff to enjoy this & I am, so I loved it! I just wish it showed how hard of a process it IS to obtain the information they got for these famous people! It really isnt THAT easy unless you shell out a couple grand.. haha.

Dr. Gates' series are always engaging and informative. This one is no exception. I have been collecting the sets since watching on PBS. I look for any series Dr. Gates is doing. Excellent resource if you are interested in genealogy or history period.
