Finding Your Roots, Season Three Premieres Tonight on PBS

Don't miss out, Season Three of "Finding Your Roots with Henry Louis Gates, Jr." premieres tonight on PBS (check your local listings) and will run every Tuesday night for ten weeks. The first episode features actor Ty Burrell, artist Kara Walker and author/political analyst Donna Brazile. I have written an article on some of the DNA analysis used for the show that should be posted in the next couple of days on the PBS site.

Read this great review of the series by Cal Thomas from the Washington Times. He writes, "Next to 'Downton Abbey,' which is again pulling large audiences for its sixth and final season, Mr. Gates' program (premiering Jan. 5th) is the best and most compelling television you will ever see."

I also have a new public Facebook page here. Please follow me there for more updates if you are on Facebook. 


  1. Great show,especially since it used Genetic Genealogy,DNA to back up the Genealogical records,friends.Vielen dank,mein lieber Freunden,and God blesd you,and Happy Holidays!

  2. I was deeply moved by the show last evening. I cried along with Donna Brazil regarding the suffering of her ancestors. What surprised me most of all was Ty Burrell's discovery of Black ancestors. It's amazing how family tales came to life through this show's research. The presentation of the ancestry findings is a touch of class! Thank you, Mr. Gates for all that you do.

  3. Thank you CeCe. This was a great episode.
