Who Do You Think You Are? - TV show
This is a really interesting & fascinating show about the backgrounds & ancestry of celebrities. I got hooked watching it when it first came on & I was glad to see it back for a new season.
Vanessa Williams story is pretty amazing. It could have been ripped out of the pages of American History books. Her ancestors as she found out helped write some of the pages.
Kim Cattrall set out to find her maternal grandfather after he disappeared 70 years ago. He left his wife and daughters on their own in Liverpool, England at a very bad time.A marriage certificate tracked him down & his new family. He was a bigamist, but her mother had closure in the end.
Rosie O'Donnell went on a search for her mother's roots & it takes her to Ireland, where she finds a new branch of the family.She also learns one of her ancestors was a highly paid driver for Wells Fargo.
A show definitely worth watching.
