    For anyone familiar with "Faces of America" and "African American Lives", this series lives up to the high standard set by those ecxellent shows. Anyone interested in genealogy or history in general should watch as Dr. Gates sleuths out the the mysteries associated with famous and notable guests. I look forward to future episodes.
