Genealogy (at least from my perspective) is fascinating. The more information you know, the information you want to know.
Who Do You Think You Are? (2010-Present) aired on NBC for three seasons before moving to TLC. Based on the British show of the same name, the focus of each episode is a performer who goes on a journey to uncover hidden parts of their family tree. Aided by historians and experts in the field of genealogy, the purpose of the journey is for the performer to answer the questions of their family’s past.
I think Who Do You Think You Are? is one of the best shows on television. It has all of the ups and downs of a scripted drama, with an ending that may be unexpected, but ultimately fulfilling.
I absolutely recommend it.
