I thought that was a great episode. I did not realize dealt with genealogy until I was into the episode but it was really well done I thought. Hopefully more topics such as this will be incorporated into other shows,

It is always great to have genealogy featured in mainstream TV shows and I love the CSI episode!
However, I think it might have been a little ‘out-there’ whenever she heard a new Surname she would immediately start a litany on the name. While we are always interested in varioua surnames, I don’t think most of us jump in with the history of a name. Just saying….it made her seem a little flaky.
