  1. This is wonderful and a great oppurtunity to continue searching for relatives.

  2. I found the first “African American Lives” program very insightfull and extremely interesting, with the records and DNA findings. I am certain the next program will be a great one for all family historians to view no matter where your ancestors came from.
