It is very interesting to hear some history in general, and some family stories in particuler. Also it can be lots of fun to find out who is a distant relative of whom. The show makes you appreciate the hardships our ancestors lived with.

I understand Dr. Gates desire to find family members. I know nothing about my ancestors and my story is as difficult to find, too. Will Dr. Gates ever agree to help a simple family like mine?
