Terrific introductory series on genealogy!

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!
