Fan of the entire series.
Review by Jeannette on 05/30/21 review stating Fan of the entire series.
Henry Louis Gates, Jr. and his colleges research the ancestors of well known people. The result is wonderful conversations about history, family dynamics, and what life was like for our relatives.

I ordered two copies of Season 3. I was interested in the LL Cool s story. I received the two copies, however, there was no story on LL Cool J. I am really disappointed and I am returning the copies. Betty

Review by Crisathome on 07/17/20 review stating One of the best shows on PBS
This show is one of my favorites. It can be comical, serious, touching, heart wrenching, fascinating and entertaining to my OCD methodical side. The research is painstaking and my only regret is that i cannot have my family history done and presented in a book as is customary on this show. I dont want to give any spoilers away but it is fascinating to see who is related to whom in the celebrity world. I highly recommend this show to anyone interested in genealogy and/or history. No one does a better job at reconstructing family history.

The product came on time - but the wrong item was sent. I shipped it back - cost me postage, so I spent $7.00 to get the wrong video and ship it back.

"'s fascinating stuff." "...this show also has some emotional moments and some "detective" work that's a lot of fun to watch." - Times Union
